FK Haugesund vs Cliftonville Match Preview
Haugesund came away with an important advantage as they snatched a 0-1 win at Solitude last week, as Christian Grindheim’s proved enough host Cliftonville for the second leg of their 1st Qualifying Round Europa League clash with a one-goal lead in the bag.
Araberne have built on the success with a convincing setup and a 5-1 win over Tromso, which has us feeling they could be finally reaching some consistency and stability despite an unpredictable run through the most part of the Eliteserien campaign so far. They have been solid defensively and will surely hope to keep that up, capitalizing on the rivals’ goalscoring troubles.
Indeed, Cliftonville netted four goals in the second leg of their Preliminary Round clash against Welsh rivals Barry Town United, but this was also their only win and the only time they have actually found the net at all in four outings across competitions since late June.
Reds have seen a 1-0 loss to Connah’s Quay in their June friendly and saw a goalless draw at Barry Town earlier, which could be worrying ahead of the tough trip to Haugesund Stadion. They’ve struggled to produce on the road in 2019 and we don’t see them doing so now either.
We will thus stick our necks out for Haugesund to build on their defensive displays of recent and back them to win to Nil, which comes at Evens with bet365 and has caught the eye of many in the know as a generous pick.
With that in mind, we hope not to see too many goals as some would suggest and we’ll now rather also go for Under 2.5 Goals FT, which looks great value at 13/10 with Unibet. We’ve seen just one goal between the sides last week and now hope for more of the same.
