2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Elisa Stadion (Vaasa).
The returning game will see Brondby travel to Finland to play against VPS. After winning 2:0 in the first leg they will seek another win here in order to seal the deal and advance to the next round.
Brondby come on the back of a very good form with 6 wins out of the last 7 games. They had a good pre-season round-up with 4 consecutive wins including a 5-1 thrashing of Qarabag and a narrow 1-0 loss against FK Rostov. They also won the opening league match of the new season with a clear 4-0 margin against Midtjylland.
On top of the this, Brondby totally crushed VPS in the previous match, but were unlucky to have scored just 2 goals. They had 28 goal attempts in total from which 11 were on target. They have a great striker like Pukki, who is coming after scoring in consecutive matches.
VPS is ranked at the 2nd place in the Finnish league, but their defensive performance is quite ineffective. They have conceded 22 goals in 17 matches and tend to focus on vague game-play with few scoring chances.
Against a superior team like Brondby, these tactics will be least effective. We have seen this clear in the previous game where they had just one shot on goal. One might not expect VPS to change a lot for this match. However, their approach might play the game straight into the hands of their opponents, who is looking solid in all departments of game-play.
VPS vs Brondby: Head to Head
With their very offensive 4-3-3 lineup Brondby managed to break through the heavy defensive 5-3-2 lineup of VPS. With Pukki and Wilczek on the wings they were fast and unpredictable during counter-attacks which even brought their 2 goals.
VPS vs Brondby: Prediction
Brondby is on fire right now and they have the momentum and confidence on back of a strong pre-season leading to a racing start to the new season. Therefore, punters can expect them to produce another strong performance. Moreover, the difference between the talents in both squad is wide and VPS are bound to struggle once again.
