TNS vs Shkendija
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 17 July 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Park Hall (Oswestry).

The New Saints were humbled in the 5-0 defeat against Shkendija last week and they are playing for pride in the second leg in front of their home fans.

The Welsh Premier League champions entered the Champions League qualifiers for a 13th time this season, but never got beyond the second round. After a heavy defeat in the first leg, they are bound to bow off the competition on Tuesday.

On the other hand, Shkendija are looking to make their first appearance in a UEFA competition’s group stage. They got close to Europa League in last two seasons before losing out on the penultimate play-off tie.

Despite deep runs at the qualifiers in the last two seasons, Shkendija failed to perform in away games. They had won just 2 of their last 8, a stat exactly opposite to their home record that often bail them out from tough situations.

TNS vs Shkendija Prediction

We are once again look at a Shkendija win, but the battle could be a tad intense than in the first leg.

This is mainly due to Shkendija’s below par showings in road games, yet they have what it got to see off the threat of a side of TNS’s stature regardless of the playing turf.
