Shkendija vs Sheriff Tiraspol
Champions League Qualifying 2018/19
Date: Tuesday, 24 July 2018
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Philip II Arena (Skopje).
The second round of 2018/19 Champions League qualifiers is filled with tight contests and it is no different when it comes to the battle between Shkendija and Sheriff Tiraspol.
We had seen two different sides of Shkendija a week ago. First they demolished the Welsh outfit TNS by 5-0 in the first leg and then were on the receiving end of a 4-0 defeat in the return leg away from home.
While, there is no doubt that the Macedonian club are an exciting team to watch, their chances of staying alive in double legged ties depends solely on their accolades at home.
Sheriff Tiraspol were slow to start in the previous round against relatively weaker side from Georgia, Torpedo Kutaisi. They lost the first leg 1-2 before turning the tables with a solid 3-0 win at home.
The result over the two legs expose Sheriff’s poor away record in the competition, lost 7 of 12 overall and without a victory in the last 5.

Shkendija vs Sheriff Tiraspol Predictions
Shkendija, an exciting prospect to watch and when on song, they are capable of scoring in bulks. Sadly, these features only apply when they are playing in front of a stadium filled with their passionate fans.
Sheriff have the better experience of playing in the qualifiers, and boast some surprise wins in their bag. But I can only summarize them as one of the worst travelers in the continent.
Does this hint as a potential home win on Tuesday? The answer is “yes”; and we can also look at a goal fest at the Philip Arena on Tuesday.
Shkendija vs Sheriff Tiraspol Betting Tips
Over 2.5 match goals for 2.40 is without a doubt my top recommendation.
Double Chance Shkendija or Draw at 1.44 odd is a decent option for those who are looking to stake in on full time result markets.
