Dudelange vs Valetta Match Preview
F91 Dudelange secured a domestic double with great confidence through a convincing streak since early March, where they bagged ten wins and a draw in last 11 outings across competitions – crowned with a thrashing 5-0 Cup Final win over Etzella Ettelbruck in late May.
Henri Bossi’s men enjoy great team spirits and they’ve proven it in their only pre-season friendly, as they beat Excelsior Virton (4-3) and now host Malta rivals Valetta for their 1st Qualifying Round Champions League clash hoping to build on the performance and great spell of form in the final third.
Valetta have, on the other hand, secured the title on penalties as they beat Hibernians in a Championship decider but fell just short of a double, as they suffered a loss on penalties after a thriller 4-4 draw against Balzan in FA Trophy. They have surely put it behind them, though, and travel to Stade Josy Barthel looking for more.
The visitors have been scoring numbers of goals too and now promise excitement, despite coming into the match as underdogs. They’ve seen a 1-3 loss to Gzira United in their late-June friendly and Darren Abdilla obviously has work to do after a loss to his old side, despite coming a long way since taking over in May.
We thus feel Dudelange will now justify their role and create an advantage ahead of the trip to Malta, as we go heavy for a Home win at 1/2 with William Hill – which has seen many big hitters lumping already.
We have seen Valetta scoring goals and hope to see them find the net in Luxembourg, which could leave a lot to play for in the second leg still. We’re thus also going for a Yes on Both teams to score, which seems a solid approach to the fixture at 5/4 with bet365 just as well.
