Progres Niederkorn vs Willem II
UEFA Europa League
Date: Wednesday, 16 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Stade Parc des Sports, Differdange.
We are long pass the times when football teams from Luxembourg were underestimated. Progres Niederkorn have caused a couple of European competitions, with the biggest scalp so far being Glasgow Rangers.
This team is taking on Dutch representative Willem II this Wednesday and team from Tillburg is hardly going to have a walk in park.
Willen are the favorites to win versus Niederkorn at 1.60 odds, but cracking home defense might take a while. It is also worth adding that both sides have lost their domestic clashes prior to this match

There were no previous head to head meetings between Progres Niederkorn and Willem II, not even in friendly games.
Progres Niederkorn vs Willem II Prediction
Team from Luxembourg kicked off their European campaign on 26th August this year at this same venue. They have faced Montenegrin side Zeta and easily won the match 3-0 FT. Man of the match was German striker Kempes Tekiela who scored two goals, while Seb Thill added one.
Progres achieved a couple of big victories in Europa League in the last decade – they managed to beat Cork City , Cardiff MU Honved, Qabala and Rangers, so it would be unfair to say they don’t have the experience.
Start of the new campaign in Luxembourg was semi-successful, featuring 4-0 in against UNA Strassen and 1-2 home loss to Dudelange.
Willem II had a good time during the pre-season, holding the home ground against PSV in a friendly match 1-1 and beating VVV 2-1 FT.
Eredivisie first round caught them off guard, losing to Heerenveen easily 0-2 FT. It’s been a while since they competed in Europe, so they surely won’t lack energy.
We will back visitors to take the win here at 1.60 odds. Alternative options might be 2 or 3 goals total or visitors to keep a clean sheet on top of victory.
