Norrkoping vs St Patrick’s Athletic Match Preview
Norrkoping snatched a 0-2 win in Dublin last week and now come off as heavy favourites to make it through to the 2nd Qualifying Round of Europa League, hosting St Patrick’s Athletic for the return in a great mood and looking to build on the solid performance at Richmond Park.
Peking have seen a 2-1 loss at Ostersunds end their two-match winning streak, where they conceded a last-gasp winner and dropped further behind the top of Allsvenskan table. Still, we’ve seen them in a good mood at Ostgotaporten lately and should now be in for more of the same.
St Patricks will be disappointed not to have capitalized on great atmosphere last week and will feel unlucky to a degree, but Harry Kenny now has to find a cure and put it behind them. They have struggled across competitions lately, though, and this could be even more worrying.
Saints have seen three losses in four outings since early July, as Shamrock Rovers (0-2), Norrkoping, and Chelsea (0-4) all snatched wins at Richmond Park and they only beat Waterford (1-2) to interrupt the streak. Struggling to retain fine form up front have proven costly and this could prove the case once again.
We will thus stick with Norrkoping to bag another win to Nil and secure their ticket to the next round with confidence, going for it at 5/6 with bet365 and hoping to see them rock-solid at the back once again.
We don’t really feel this will be a very one-sided contest, though, and we thus hope to see few goals at Ostgotaporten as we also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 27/20 with bet365 – which seems like great value seeing the first fixture between the sides.
