Our football match prediction:
Despite suffering a 2-1 loss to Norrkoping in Sweden, Trakai eventually booked their place in the Europa League third qualifying round. The Lithuanians defeated Norrkoping on penalties in the return leg and, no doubt, they are hungry for more success. Trakai have not been handed a tough draw in round 3 as they take on Shkendija in the two-legged tie and we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from Thursday’s football match at Vilniaus LFF stadionas. Trakai are on a six-game winning run at home in the national championship and we would not be surprised if they emerge triumphant in the first leg. Shkendija, on the other hand, eliminated Helsinki in the Europa League second qualifying round, but seeing that the Macedonian teams produce much better performances at home than on the travels, we believe that there is a certain value in betting on the Lithuanian outfit.
