Our football match prediction:
Utrecht played below expectations against Valletta in their Europa League opener and, as a result, the Dutch outfit were hold to a goalless draw by Zoran Popovic’s men. Erik ten Hag’s troops are not regarded as good travelers, but they are definitely capable of beating the Maltese team in front of home fans. The Eredivisie side are likely to take Thursday’s football match very seriously and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Valetta. The underdogs have yet to concede a goal in the 2017/2018 Europa League qualifiers, but preventing Utrecht from scoring at Mandemakers Stadion is easier said than done. Erik ten Hag’s charges are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they are widely expected to make it to the Europa League third qualifying round. Summer signing Simon Makienok is eager to score his first goal for Utrecht, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay.
