Cardiff MU Prediction – Can Cardiff MU record comeback win?

Cardiff MU trail by a 1-0 margin following last week’s defeat at the Stade Jos Haupert, but the Welsh hosts will be looking to make the most of home turf here.

It’ll actually be artificial turf that they’ll be looking to make the most of and it served them well last year as the hosts won 9 of their last 10 matches at home last season.

Although Cardiff Met University failed to make the cut for the Championship Round in the Welsh Premier League, they still qualified for these Europa League play-offs.

At the end of the regular season, Cardiff MU dropped into the Relegation Round group but finished top by a 7-point margin above 2nd placed Abersytwyth.

Winning all 5 of their home matches and recording a 100% winning record at home was the catalyst behind their success and grabbing this Europa League spot.

What’s more, Cardiff MU also recorded 4 clean sheets within this 5-match winning streak and their solid defensive unit could be the key difference in this 2nd leg.

Niedercorn Prediction – Can Niedercorn finish the job in Cardiff?

Luxembourg side, Progres Niedercorn appear to have one foot in the Europa League 1st qualifying round after last week’s 1-0 win in the 1st leg.

However, although they finished the recent domestic season with 3 wins out of their last 5 matches in the National Division, it’s not all cut and dried.

2 of the 3 wins were recorded at their Stade Jos Haupert with victories against UT Petange and Rumelange, but away form was sporadic.

The visitors have picked up just 3 away wins out of their last 10 matches in all competitions on their travels, and lost 5 of these.

Niedercorn finished the National Division season with an away record of 4-2-7 18/24 which should give Cardiff MU plenty of hope here.

In addition, Niedercorn have lost 5 of their last 6 away ties in the Europa League with just the one win recorded in a 2-0 win at Azerbaijan outfit, Qabala.

They’ve also kept just the 1 clean sheet from these 6 away ties, so this Europa League preliminary tie looks far from over yet.


Key-Facts – Cardiff MU v Niedercorn

  • Cardiff MU have won their last 8 home matches on the trot in the WPL
  • Niedercorn have lost 5 of their last 6 away ties in the Europa League
  • This will be Cardiff MU’s first ever Europa league tie at home


Betting Tips Verdict

Cardiff MU will have local conditions in their favour and should at least avoid a heavy defeat here, if not nick a memorable win.
