Shamrock Rovers Preview

Shamrock Rovers haven’t been very spectacular throughout their first qualifying round, but they did their job by beating Stjarnan 2-0 on aggregate. Shamrock were thrashed 9-0 by Celtic in a friendly fixture recently, but it has to be said that they used the second squad for that game. Regarding their domestic campaign, Shamrock find themselves only in 4th in the Irish Premier Division, just one point off the third-placed Bray. Conceding has been their biggest problem throughout their league campaign as they hold the second worst defensive record in top five with 29 goals conceded in 21 rounds. The good news is that Shamrock have been in fine shape in front of their own fans over the past four months as they are undefeated in their last eleven home competitive fixtures, including their 1-0 win over Stjarnan. Prior to their recent two wins over Stjarnan, Shamrock were on a four-game winless streak in the Europa League qualifiers, conceding two goals in three of these. Gary Shaw and Graham Burke are the players to watch here as they bagged eleven goals between them in the Irish Premier Division so far this season, and they also managed to get on the scoresheet in the previous qualifying round.

Mlada Boleslav Preview

Mlada Boleslav finished only in 4th in the 1.Liga table last season, but this was enough for them to book their place in the Europa League qualifiers. However, the Czech have endured a disappointing pre-season campaign so far, losing three of their five friendlies. Furthermore, they have conceded at least two goals in three of those five friendly games. The good news is that Mlada have won all three of their past second qualifying round ties. Although, they suffered a disappointing elimination from the in the third qualifying round last year following a 1-2 aggregate defeat at the hands of the Macedonian side Shkendija. Away from home, the Czechs have been in mixed shape over the past five months, registering seven wins, five defeats and three draws in their last 15 away games across all competitions. The positive thing is that Mlada have scored at least two goals in seven of their last ten away games across all competitions. In addition, the Czech clubs’ record in twelve UEFA meetings with Irish teams is eleven wins and one draw. Jan Chramosta and Gol-Gol Mebrahtu have both been in fine shape throughout their domestic campaign last season, as the pair bagged 17 goals and two assists between them.
