Nomme Kalju vs Shkendija Match Preview
Shkendija have topped the Macedonian First League with confidence and with a 15-point gap behind them, now looking to build on the last term’s Champions League Qualifiers success as they open the campaign early with a 1st Qualifying Round clash at Estonian rivals Nomme Kalju on Tuesday.
Indeed, Red and Blacks have only seen Salzburg (0-4 on aggregate) beat them in 3rd Qualifying Round and Rosenborg (5-1 on aggregate) deny them a spot in the Europa League Group stage last term. Qatip Osmani’s men now come as heavy betting favourites to make their way here as well, travelling to Kadrioru Staadion in hope they can show off.
Nomme Kalju made the 3rd Qualifying Round back in 2013 but failed to make an appearance in the UCL Qualifiers since, now hosting the clash on the back of a seven-match unbeaten streak – despite losing on their goalscoring consistency over the last couple of weeks.
Pink Panthers have been held off by Tammeka (0-0) and Trans (1-1) in two very narrow Meistriliiga clashes now behind them and will have to show more if they’re to shut down the Macedonian rivals on the day. They’ve been in great shape in Tallinn, though, but building on such records still feels improbable.
We expect Shkendija very motivated to put this one beyond reach in the first leg already and we’ll go for them to make a great step towards such a scenario, as we back an Away win to Nil at 6/5 with bet365 – which seems great value.
Indeed, the visitors have based their success on tough defensive displays lately and with that in mind, we hope not to see many goals at Kadrioru Staadion either. We’ll thus also go for few goals and back Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 3/4 with 22bet.
