Valletta FC vs F91 Dudelange Match Preview
F91 Dudelange have been dominant and it felt they’ve all but secured a comfortable advantage ahead of the trip to Malta after they went 2-0 up late in the first half. However, they conceded two in just six minutes in the second and now have to look for an upset at MFA Centenary Stadium.
Henri Bossi’s men have thus dropped an important result in Luxembourg but they still come into the second leg on the back of a very long unbeaten streak, where they earned 15 wins and five draws in 20 outings across competitions since early February. We thus feel they will still be confident and Malta rivals will have a run for their money.
Valletta have seen a comfortable 1-3 loss to Gzira United in their only pre-season outing and while everything felt like another such occasion last week, they now have a confidence booster behind them. Still, they’ll have to impress at MFA Centenary Stadium if they’re to make it to the 2nd Qualifying Round and Darren Abdilla surely knows it.
The popular Citizens saw their new signing Douglas kick-start the comeback with a great free-kick goal and Jean Borg completed it at 70’ mark. They’ve kept hold of the tie and now come into the match as favourites to Qualify to the next stage, but we don’t see them making it happen.
We’ll now rather stick our necks out for Dudelange to cause an upset in Ta’Qali and finish what they’ve started early in the first leg, as we now back an Away win at 6/4 with bet365 – hoping they can show off as more of a dominant side here.
Still, we do feel they’ll have to outgun the rivals to do so and we should be in for another exciting game of football, which has us going for a Yes on Both teams to score – which comes at 4/6 with Coral and feels like buying money for old rope.
