HB Torshavn vs Linfield
Europa League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 23 July 2019
Kick-off at 16:45 UK / 17:45 CET
Venue: Gundadalur (Torshavn).
The home team faced a disappointing end to their Champions League campaign which saw HJK knock them out of the Cup, with the tie finishing in a 5-2 aggregate score.
The hosts held their opponents to a 2-2 draw in their previous game, but the three goals that they had conceded in the first leg was more than enough to consign them to the Europa League qualifiers.
The visitors had an even more dismal experience in their round of sixteen clash with Rosenborg who slotted six unanswered goals over the course of two legs. The second leg alone, which was a trip on the road for them, saw their foes score four goals.
The Irish outfit are certainly the underdogs by a mile in this one and will have to put on a much more convincing performance if they are to salvage at least an away goal.

Torshavn vs Linfield Prediction
The home team are the favorites to bag the win when they meet for their maiden clash on Tuesday and could well carry an advantage into the second leg.
The hosts bounced back from a 3-0 defeat, away from home, to hold their opponents to a 2-2 draw in their previous game which was at this very same venue.
Apart from failing to pick up the win in their last two fixtures, the visiting side have been struggling to find the back of the net.
Their last trip on the road was a nightmare for them, and could well be in for a repeat of the same when they make the trip to Gundadalur.
We can certainly expect a high scoring clash with the home team likely to be the only ones to get their names on the scoresheet.
