Hajduk Split vs Gzira United Match Preview
Hajduk Split host Gzira United for the return match of their 1st Qualifying Round Europa League clash on Thursday evening, coming on the back of a 0-2 win on the road where Adam Gyurcso opened the scoresheet late in the first half and Ivan Dolcek doubled it only very late in the second.
Whites have struggled to pick it up through the pre-season and saw somewhat unexpected losses to Aluminij (1-0) and Slask Wroclaw (1-2) in late June and early July, respectively, only ending the unwanted streak with a 1-1 draw against Zorya. They have seemingly put it behind them, though, and Sinisa Orescanin will want to build on the performance.
Gzira have, on the other hand, struggled to create and convert chances late last term and we’ve seen about the same against Hajduk. They’ve been tough at the back, though, and were rather unlucky to concede two odd goals where Justin Haber came oh-so-close to keeping them out.
Giovanni Tedesco now surely has regrets but will have to look for a quick fix as his men travel to Split and expect a great atmosphere at Poljud, which could as well see the Croatians earn their ticket to the next round with ease despite struggles for form still very early in the new season.
We do feel they have what it takes to do so and we’ll thus back Hajduk to another comfortable win over the Maltese rivals, as we now go for Asian Handicap – Hajduk to win -2.5 at 15/16 with MansionBet and hope for the home side even more confident.
We do feel they’ll base such success on a solid defensive approach before anything else and we’re thus also backing Hajduk to keep a clean sheet, which comes at 8/15 with bet365. We have been used to such focus at the back at Poljud and just hope for more of the same now.
