Cliftonville Prediction – Can Cliftonville make home advantage count?

The 2nd leg of this Europa League preliminary round is still nicely poised with the scores level at 0-0 following last week’s 1st leg stalemate.

It’s seemingly advantage Cliftonville though as they now hold home advantage at Solitude and having lost just once in their last 6 matches overall, look seemingly well set.

The one defeat was a 1-0 loss away at Welsh Premier League club, Connahs Quay, in a recent friendly a couple of weeks ago.

Results at home have also been encouraging for the Northern Irish outfit as the hosts have won their last 4 matches on home turf on the trot.

Indeed, Cliftonville are now unbeaten on home soil at Solitude from their last 12 matches in all competitions, and tonight’s tie could be a lucky 13 match undefeated.

It’s not all been plain sailing at home in the Europa League though as Cliftonville have lost 5 of their 8 ties on home turf to date.

However, wins against Croatian side, Cibalia, along with victories over Swedish outfit, Kalmar and Luxembourg side, Differdange 03, should give them confidence here.

Barry Town Prediction – Can Barry Town secure 2nd leg win at Solitude?

Barry Town were unable to make the most of home advantage in last week’s 1st leg tie at their Jenner Park ground and now face a tricky 2nd leg.

That’s now 5 matches without a win for the Welsh visitors in all competitions, and indeed, they’ve managed just 2 wins out of their last 10 matches overall.

Wins over Caernarfon Town and Bala Town in the domestic Welsh Premier League are slim returns for their efforts, while results on the road have also been lacklustre.

Just 1 win on the road out of their last 7 matches on their travels in all competitions is a disappointing return for manager, Gavin Chesterfield, and his boys.

Barry Town have played just one away tie before this 2nd leg on Thursday night in their very brief Europa League history.

This ended in a 2-0 defeat away at Portuguese side, Boavista, and they could be facing an uphill task in Northern Ireland this Thursday night as well.

The visitors have failed to keep a single clean sheet in each of their last 11 away matches in all competitions.

  • Cliftonville are now unbeaten on home soil at Solitude in their last 12 matches
