HB Torshavn vs Linfield Match Preview
HB Torshavn have seen troubles against Finland’s HJK in 1st Qualifying Round of Champions League, where it felt they could bounce from a 3-0 loss on the road but the rivals picked it up in the second half and scored two goals after the hour mark to make their way past Heimir Gudjonsson on the back of a 2-2 draw.
They now host Linfield for their Europa League clash and hope to put the disappointing clash behind them, surely hoping to build on a rock-solid domestic streak seen beforehand. HB have been scoring numbers of goals at this ground and will hope they can keep it up now.
Linfield have seen a tough start of their campaign and it was really tough to expect them to cope with Rosenborg, as David Healy’s men suffered a 6-0 aggregate loss. They’ve struggled to pick it up through their pre-season and it has shown costly, with a loss that will be hard to bounce back.
Blues have thus seen five losses in their last six outings and only interrupted the streak with a friendly win over Portstewart (0-3) where the attacking line showed off against the 3rd tier rivals. However, we don’t feel it will be enough to lift their team spirits and HB could capitalize.
We will thus back HB Torshavn to secure an advantage in front of the home fans, hoping to see them confident at Gundadalur once again and able to take advantage of the rivals’ woes despite a busy schedule on their end and possible fatigue.
Linfield have seen their share of high-scoring clashes and while they’ve been on the receiving end lately, it’s fair to say we’ve been used to goals from them on the road too. We’ll thus also back them to find the net here with a Yes on Both teams to score, despite holding to our claim HB will outgun them.
