Sant Julia vs Gzira United
Europa League Preliminary Round
Date: Tuesday, 26 June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Estadi Comunal (Andorra la Vella).
Sant Julia are going to host Gzira United in the first leg match of the Europa League Preliminary Round.
Home side finished the last season on the 3rd place and snatched the chance for a continental campaign. Luis Blanco’s side has been playing variably in the latest five rounds, while they also lost in the finals of the Andorran Cup. The hosts are pretty efficient, while their defence has been doing a good job. But, keep in mind that these figures apply only to the domestic league.
This is the second participation in the European competitions for the hosts and they earned their place after finishing third in Maltese Premier League. They have been in a very good form in the closing rounds of the season as they booked four victories in the last five matches. Amadou Samb and the lads have been the most productive side in the competition as they managed to find the net 53 times last season.
Sant Julia vs Gzira United: Head-to-head
This will be the first head to head clash of these two sides as the visitors haven’t participated too often in the continental competitions.
Sant Julia vs Gzira United: Prediction
It is hard to back up the prediction since both sides are pretty obscure ones, but in our opinion, the visitors should be considered as slight favourites. Maltese teams have increased the level of their performances in recent seasons and they should be able to book a win in this one.
Although both teams have been pretty efficient in their domestic leagues, in this one we shouldn’t expect many goals as this will be the first match of the season for both sides and it’s questionable what is the level of their readiness at this moment.
