Vitoria de Guimaraes vs Jeunesse Esch
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 1 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio D. Afonso Henriques (Guimarães).
Vitoria de Guimaraes came out on top with a narrow 1-0 scoreline when the two sides locked horns with each other in the first leg of their European Qualifiers last week.
The game was certainly one-sided, with Jeunesse Esch practically missing from the attacking third throughout the ninety minutes. The side from Luxembourg managed zero shots on target in that clash, while their opponents took twenty-two attempts at goal.
It’s a miracle that the scoreline turned out to be this slender, as the hosts came close to scoring on four more occasions.
The dismal performance that Jeunesse Esch exhibited last time out certainly indicates that they are the underdogs by a mile in this one. With Vitoria de Guimaraes adding home advantage to the equation, Jeunesse Esch’s hopes of progressing into the next round are hanging dangerously by a thread.

Vitoria de Guimaraes vs Jeunesse Esch Prediction
Despite the narrow scorecard, the hosts were the dominant side in their last clash. The Portuguese outfit are also unbeaten in their last two games at this venue, with their previous encounter here finishing 5-1 to them.
The squad also scored twenty-seven goals on home soil in the league last season, and are likely to be much more clinical in the return clash against Jeunesse Esch.
The visitors, on the other hand, have just one win in their last three outings with their most recent trip on the road ending in a frustrating 1-1 draw.
Given Vitoria de Guimaraes’s impressive home record, the odds are certainly favoring an easy win for them as their foes are unlikely to cause any trouble whatsoever with the run of form that they are in right now.
Expect the hosts to rack up all the goals on the scorecards singlehandedly on Thursday.
