Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Brann will try to overcome a one-goal deficit in the tie with Arouca when the two sides meet in Bergen on Thursday evening. The Norwegians were not in action in the Eliteserien at the weekend, meaning that tired legs should not prove to be a problem for them. Even though all Blomberg, Torsvik, and Trengereid have been struggling with injuries of late, home win should be considered as Brann have turned their stadium into a real fortress.
Arouca, on the other hand, recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Estoril in their Primeira Liga opener, but given their shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts this time out. All Michel, Moreira, and Vitinho have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the Portuguese outfit, while Santos Carvalho is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute at the weekend.
