Viking vs Sligo Rovers Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (04/08/2022)

Viking will face Sligo Rovers in another curious fixture from the Europa Conference League qualifications on Thursday.

Viking vs Sligo Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips

Both teams will be motivated after their great performances in the previous round of the qualifiers. Here are our predictions for this match.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

Both Viking and Sligo Rovers did not perform in the best ways in their matches from the previous round but still won their games and are here in the semi finals. We think that this match will be different than what we saw from the two teams and we should expect goals from both ends. Sligo Rovers had serious issues but their defense somehow managed to keep a clean sheet. We think that they will struggle a bit more against Viking.

Team To Score in Half – Viking 1st Half

Viking are coming from the high-scoring league in Norway and are used to scoring goals against all kinds of opponents. We saw that Sligo Rovers have some issues at the start of their matches – they usually concede a goal before half time and play much better in the second half of the matches. We think that Viking will find a way to score a goal early in this game.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

Sligo Rovers are definitely not a high-scoring team when compared to Viking but we expect to see a max of 1:1 in this match. We think that Sligo will realize that they are the huge underdog in this match and will try to be as safe as possible. Viking will also be motivated after beating a huge opponent in the previous round – Sparta Prague, and will try to be as safe as possible and make it easy for the second leg.

Viking Preview

Viking have surprisingly been one of the top teams in the league over the past few years and rightfully finished in 3rd place last season in Norway. The team had some incredible stats after 30 games – 60:47 in goal difference. They are a high-scoring team with a lot of potential but a surprisingly massive favorite against Sligo Rovers.

Sligo Rovers Preview

Sligo Rovers had an unbelievable season last year and surprised us all with their 3rd place in Ireland. The team is definitelt not a high-scoring one but their defense is the second-best in the league. The team had a goal difference of 43:32 after 36 rounds. The league in Ireland is not strong at all but it is surprising to see Sligo as such an underdog against a team like Viking.
