Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Richmond Park will host Thursday’s Conference League qualifier between St Patricks and Dudelange. The Saints are eager to record a big win over Dudelange in order to make it to the second qualifying round, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for Jon Daly’s troops. Mark Doyle is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the first leg, while Tom Grivosti remains in the recovery room. Fellow defender Joe Redmond is a major doubt.
The Luxembourg outfit, on the other hand, are eager to defend their slim lead in the reverse fixture, but seeing that St Patricks have turned their Richmond Park into a real fortress, home win should be considered. Dudelange boss Jamath Shoffner has no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to the Republic of Ireland.
