Europa FC vs TNS Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

TNS will be looking to overturn a one-goal deficit when they travel to the Estadio Do Algarve to take on Europa FC for the second leg of their Champions League first round qualifying tie. The first leg ended as a 1-2 victory for the Gibraltarian side thanks to goals from Alex Quillo and Enrique Gomez. TNS managed to level the game at halftime with Scott Quigley scoring the goal just before the break, but unfortunately, they conceded the second goal with just 10 minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

TNS need to score twice in order to qualify further in the competitions as Europa FC have the away goal advantage. I’m expecting a cagey affair but I think that Europa FC should be able to secure at least a draw here as they are playing in front of their own fans and have enjoyed an excellent run of form at home over the past few weeks.

Europa FC Preview

Europa FC have won the title in Gibraltar last season, which was their first league title in 65 years. They finished on top of the Premier Division table with just one point clear off the runners-up Lincoln Red Imps. Furthermore, Europa FC continued their domestic dominance by beating Lincoln Red Imps 3-0 in the Gibraltar Cup Final. Overall, Europa FC have only lost once in their last 19 games across all competitions and head into this tie on the back of an eight-game winning streak. They looked incredibly strong going forward during their recent run, scoring at least two goals in seven of their eight competitive fixtures. Furthermore, Europa FC showed some excellent defensive skills recently, keeping a clean sheet in six of their last eight fixtures. On home soil, the Gibraltarian side have won eleven of their last twelve home games across all competitions. This is their first game in a European competition so they have no history to their name, but they looked pretty solid in the first leg and they now have the home advantage.

Europa FC Team News

The Gibraltarian side have no fresh injury concerns ahead of this clash.

TNS Preview

Meanwhile, TNS have won the Welsh Premier League title with 27 points more than the runners-up Connahs Q. Furthermore, the Welsh side managed an excellent tally of 101 goals in their 32 league fixtures, including 13 from their topscorer Greg Draper. Actually, TNS registered a ridiculous 12-1 home win over Brickfield in a friendly fixture before suffering the shock defeat at the hands of Europa FC last week. The bad news is that TNS aren’t regarded as good travelers as they have only won four of their last nine games across all competitions. In addition, The New Saints have suffered defeats in six of their last nine away games in the UEFA Champions League qualifying. Last year, TNS managed to reach the 2nd qualifying round, but they were beaten 3-0 on aggregate by APOEL Limassol. Actually, the last five season have all seen them go as far as the second round. Their longest run in the competition was back in 2010/11 when they reached the 3rd qualifying round, although they were humiliated 6-1 by the Belgian side Anderlecht.

TNS Team News

Coach Ruscoe has the full squad available for this tie, and maybe this time he will introduce the team’s topscorer Greg Draper from the first minute of the game.
