St Joseph’s vs B36 Torshavn
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 20 August 2020
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Victoria Stadium (Gibraltar)
The home team will be playing after a long break on Thursday. They were given the chance to play in the Europa League after the domestic league was cancelled due to the pandemic. They are currently on a five-match winning streak in all competitions. So even though they have no match practise, playing at home will be a big plus for the Saints.
Torshavn will be looking to emulate their success against this opposition back in 2018. Apart from the defeat to HB Torshavn in the league, they have won eight of their nine previous games in both cup and league. Also, they possess one of the best-attacking units in their country which makes them more dangerous for the Saints.
St Joseph’s vs B36 Torshavn: Head-to-head (h2h)

- Torshavn progressed to the next round on penalties (4-2).
St Joseph’s vs B36 Torshavn: Prediction
Both of them are coming into this game after successive wins in respective competitions. But the lack of game time maybe causes a problem for the Saints, as they played their final competitive game back in March. But they have never lost in home matches since the defeat to Rangers in the second round previous Europa League campaign. Since both of them are having back to back wins, I think this might turn out to be a draw.
The away team has experience playing against top opponents like Besiktas in previous European qualifying rounds. Also, they have scored two or more goals in all eight recent games. The home team is also capable of testing the away defence. So I am backing the match to draw at normal time and both teams to score goals.
