Meanwhile, Lyngby are appearing at a European qualifiers for the first time in their history. They also started off in style by eliminating Welsh club Bangor City with a 4-0 aggregate win.
Lyngby made an exciting finish to their domestic season that ended in May by winning five matches on the trot. With their wins over Bangor City home and away, the Danes have made it 7 wins in a row, which will add much needed confidence in going against a team like Slovan Bratislava.

This is the first meeting between Slovan Bratislava and Lyngby.
Slovan Bratislava vs Lyngby: Prediction
Both teams will be buoyed by the huge wins in their previous qualifying round. However, this will be a different battle as each of them are coming with full of confidence in their bags.
We feel, this is one of those encounters in which the home advantage counts the most. And this is the main reason why Slovan are made favourites by the bookies. Lyngby’s inexperience at this level is also another strong reason for the same.
Therefore, punters can find value in banking on a home win. However, we believe the teams will be separated by the slimmest of the margins at the final whistle.
