Suduva vs Red Star Belgrade
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 1 August 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Marijampoles sporto centro stadione, Marijampole.
Suduva made a massive upset by eliminating Cypriot heavyweights APOEL in the first qualifying round. They, however, do not look to have strength to repeat such an accomolishment in the second round, at least if we are to judge by the first leg of the tie against Red Star Belgrade. The Serbian champions were too strong on the occasion, beating the Lithuanian outing 3-0 seven days ago in Belgrade.
Lorenzo Ebecilio is proving out to be a fantastic acquisition as the new signing was just the man who opened the scoring minutes before the half-hour mark. Young winger Nemanja Radonjic was, however, the main of the match, proving a brace and setting the final score 3-0 for Red Star. Lithuanian side now need a miracle to annul such high deficit and keep the Champions League dream alive after the rematch in Marijampole.
Suduva vs Red Star Belgrade: Head-to-head
This will only be the second ever head to head encounter between Suduva and red Star Belgrade, following the aforementioned 3-0 victory for the Serbian side in the first leg of the tie.
Suduva vs Red Star Belgrade: Prediction
Red Star thus only continued the phenomenal form in European competitions. They shockingly reached the last 32 round of Europa League last year (where they were millimetres away from eliminating CSKA Moscow) and they are yet to concede a goal in this term of Champions league qualifications. After dispatching the Spartaks Jurmala threat 2-0 on aggregate, Vladan Milojevic’s men seem to have an even easier job against Suduva here. On top of this, Red Star Belgrade started the new season in their domestic league in a strong fashion, claiming comprehensive clean sheet wins over Dinamo Vranje and Radnicki Nis in two opening games.
Red Star thus kept their net untouched in each of five official games of the new season and we’ll back them to keep such thread going against attackingly limited Suduva side here. The best of the betting options would be Red Star Belgrade to keep a clean sheet at 2.20 odds. You can also try with the Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.75 knowing that the visitors do not have to push forward with a three-goal advantage form the first leg.
