Our football match prediction:
Coleraine face an uphill task in Thursday’s football match against Haugesund. The Bannsiders suffered a heavy 7-0 loss to Haugesund in Norway and, as a result, they have very slim chances of booking their place in the Europa League second qualifying round. The underdogs have nothing to lose in the return leg and we predict that they will go all-out attack against the Norwegians. The Northern Ireland outfit, though, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the 7-0 loss to Haugesund and, given the attacking potential of the away team, they are unlikely to keep a clean sheet in the second leg. Coach Eirik Horneland is likely to mix the squad against Coleraine, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, there is a big value in betting on the visitors, who are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Northern Ireland.
