Sheriff Tiraspol vs Saburtalo Match Preview
Sheriff Tiraspol have been very convincing domestically and they now host Georgia rivals Saburtalo for their 1st Qualifying Round Champions League clash on the back of a ten-match winning streak across competitions, hoping to build on their consistency and make a statement in the first leg already.
Wasps have bagged 34 goals in five outings since mid-June, outclassing Sireti with 15 goals to Nil in their Cup clash on Friday, but probably more importantly – they’ve been rock-solid at the back and kept clean sheets on all of the occasions. Zoran Zekic will now want to build on such displays and we feel his men will be very confident.
Saburtalo have topped the Erovnuli Liga table with confidence and a ten-point gap last year and now hope to show off here, looking for an upset at Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena. However, they’ve lost on their consistency lately and this could be more worrying ahead of the tough trip for them.
Saburtaloelebi have been denied by Dinamo Batumi (0-0) and Rustavi (2-2) in two home outings since mid-June and suffered a narrow 1-0 loss at city rivals Lokomotivi Tbilisi along the way, as they dropped a point behind new pace-setters Dinamo Tbilisi and now need to recuperate quickly if they’re to put on a serious challenge.
We do feel the visitors will be very motivated to show off but we feel Sheriff will have too much for them at this point, as we stick with the home side to secure a win to Nil at Evens with William Hill and earn an important advantage ahead of the trip to Georgia.
However, we hope to see Saburtalo keep hold of their defensive structure and we should not see them all over the place, as we now also go for few goals with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 3/4 with bet365 which has seen many big hitters lumping already.
