Valerenga vs Gent
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 28 July 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET,
Venue: Intility Arena (Oslo).

Valerenga needs to produce some kind of a miracle to get out of the four-goal deficit from the first leg of the quarterfinals in the UEFA European Conference League. The Norway side has work to do in the second leg with Gent on Thursday at Intility Arena.

The host has been winless in all but one of their recent five fixtures in the overall schedule. Their previous encounter was on the road in the NM Cup and defeated Lyn with a 0-4 scoreline. They have won only three games in their last ten matches across all major competitions.

On the other hand, Gent will be comfortable with a four-goal cushion ahead of the second leg. The Belgian contingent has won five of their last six fixtures in their form. They will visit after suffering a 2-1 loss on the road against St. Truiden last time out in the Jupiler League.

Valerenga vs Gent Prediction

Playing at home will give more space to Valerenga in the second leg and we can expect them to trouble the traveling side in the middle. The host enjoys the ground advantage and comes from a decent league.

However, things might not point to the home team breaking the four-goal barrier. The visitor is likely to qualify for the next round as all they need to do is run out the clock on Thursday.

Considering how the Belgian side kept a clean sheet last game, defending that goal margin will not be a huge task for the away team.

Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably come in handy and Gent will likely have an edge in the game.
