Shakhtyor Soligorsk vs Hibernians FC
Europa League Qualifying
Date: Thursday 11th July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stroitel Stadium (Soligorsk).
Shakhtyor will start as favourites to beat Maltese Premier League side Hibernians FC, though one can wonder why. Shakhtyor can be backed at odds of around 1/3 to get the win but take away the fact that they is a big gap in quality between the teams.
Hibernians played well and worked hard for the past 12 months for this shot and they will want to give a good performance even if the bookies think they are out of their league and have them priced up as much as 7/1 to get the win.
In Europe Hibernians have the worst possible record, having won in none of the 14 games since 2005. The team from Malta lost 13 of them during the period and most of those came with heavy margins.
Meantime, Shakhtyor are used to getting to at least the 2nd qualifying round when it comes to the Europa League and will be aiming to reach this round at least again. Shakhtyor have become very good in getting home results in Europe and this is why the traveling Maltese fans must be worried.

Shakhtyor Soligorsk vs Hibernians FC Prediction
There is no value in Shakhtyor for an outright win and they are at home and a far better side in comparison. Though, there is no hiding the fact that Shakhtyor is an inconsistent side, but they have the benefit of playing in a better competitive league and could hand the minnows from Malta a sizable defeat.
