Sligo Rovers vs Viking Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips 11/08/2022

Sligo Rovers and Viking meet for the second time in the second leg of Europa Conference League qualifiers. The first leg in round 3 was a goal fest duel that had six goals. Sligo Rovers lost 5-1 in a humiliating defeat against Norwegian side, Viking. And so, the question is, do they stand any chance in the second leg? Read our preview for more details.

Sligo Rovers vs Viking Free Betting Predictions

Sligo Rovers have a tough task ahead. They must score at least four goals to have any hope of progressing to the next round after losing 5-1 in the reverse game. The hosts won 2-1 in the domestic league after the massive loss in the first leg, a result they look to build on to get a positive result in this duel. Our best three predictions for the Europa Conference League qualifier are:

Goals expected on both ends of the pitch

Goals will likely be scored by both teams in this clash. Sligo Rovers managed to pull a goal back in the 89th minute through a spot kick in the first leg. The second leg will at home, so backing them to score a goal should attract a good price with the selected bookmaker. The visitors have a good scoring run in the competition and with five goals in the first leg, there is a good chance they will find the net at least once in the second leg.

Over 0.5 half-time

The second tip for the game is that there will be at least a goal in the first-half. A high scoreline in the first leg set the precedence for more goals in the second leg. Sligo Rovers will be hungrier for more goals and given that the first leg had two goals in the first half, we expect at least a goal in the first half of the second leg.

Viking over 1.5 goals

Five goals for Viking in the first leg was massive. They have played three games so far in the qualifiers, scored at least twice in two games and failed to score in only one match. It seems Sligo Rovers was an easy opponent for Viking in the first leg and so, a similar strategy if applied, should yield at least two goals for the visitors in this trip.

Sligo Rovers vs Viking Second Leg, Round 3 Europa Conference League Qualifiers Match Preview

Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers hope they can pull a surprise in the second leg of the third round of UEFA Europa Conference League qualifiers. However, that will take extra effort after a 5-1 thrashing in the first leg. Notably, the visitors have won two and lost one of their last three games at home, with one victory being in the first leg of the second round. They have participated in the competition since round one, winning one and losing as many games in two home games.

Viking

Viking looks to make it two wins from two meetings with Sligo Rovers. A 5-1 victory in the first leg was massive for Viking. It will be easy to defend the lead in this second leg, especially on the back of a good run in the competition. Viking Joined Europa Conference League qualifiers in Round 2 and haven’t lost in 3 games after picking two wins and one draw.
