FCI Tallinn vs Hibernians
2017/18 UEFA Champions League Qualifiers
Date: Tuesday, 4th July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: A. Le Coq Arena.
Hibernians claimed a comfortable 2-0 win in the first leg in front of their fans to gain a massive edge ahead of the rematch at A. Le Coq Arena.
The Estonians will thus have a mountain to climb to make a comeback and secure the second qualifying round of Champions League, but it is obviously far from mission impossible against the Maltese squad.
FCI Tallinn shocked the favourites to win their first ever Meistriliiga title last year and secure their debut in the most elite football competition.
However, the team lost most of their key figures from the last season which is why they are as many as 20 points away from Flora at the top of the standings after 17 rounds of the new term.
The visitors continued their domination in the top flight of the Maltese football winning their 12th silverware with seven-point advantage ahead of the second-placed Balzan last year.
The English manager has as many as four Brazilians in his squad. Jackson Lima and Jorginho were questionable ahead of the first leg in Corradino, but they made the appearance and they are completely fit for the rematch in Estonian capital.
FCI Tallinn vs Hibernians: Head to head
Hibernians were the dominant side on the pitch in the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams.
Jorge Pereira and Bjorn Kristensen made the difference netting goals within ten minutes of the second half to bring Hibernians a massive advantage in the tie.
FCI Tallinn vs Hibernians: Prediction
Maltese champions will sit at the back and wait for their chances from the counter attacks.
Miller has strong weapons (for this level of the competition) in the likes of Marcelo Dias, Jorge Pereira and Jackson Lima and we see the value in backing the visitors to claim the victory in the second leg as well at the sky-high 11/4 odds.
