Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Linfield will be looking to make a promising start to their Conference League qualifying campaign when they take on Vlaznia at Windsor Park on Thursday evening. The Blues were beaten by St. Mirren in their first warm-up game, but they head into the Conference League encounter following a 1-0 win over Kilmarnock. The Northern Ireland outfit are eager to put an end to their five-game winless run in the competition, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for them.
The Albanians, on the other hand, are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the first leg, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on under 2.5 goals. The two clubs meet for the first time ever in European competitions. You should know that there have been under 2.5 goals in three of Vlaznia’s last four Conference League games.
