Europa Prediction – Can Europa bounce back?

Europa find themselves on the back foot ahead of their 2nd leg tussle with Andorran club, Sant Julia, after last week’s defeat.

A 3-2 loss away from home in the 1st leg in Andorra at the Centre d’Entrenament de la FAF 1 means that Thursday night’s hosts are now chasing this tie.

However, recent form has been encouraging as the hosts have suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 23 matches in all competitions.

These were losses to Lincoln Red Imps and last week’s Europa League 1st leg defeat at Sant Julia, both of which were away from home.

Results on home turf at their Victoria Stadium have been almost exemplary as they’ve captured 10 wins from their last 11 matches played in all competitions.

That said, all of these victories were achieved in the domestic Gibraltan top flight Premier Division, where the hosts are a big fish in a little pond.

Europa’s success in the Europa League though has been severely limited to just 1 win out of their last 11 ties at this level.

In addition, the hosts have recorded just 1 win at home from their last 5 matches played in the Europa League.

Sant Julia Prediction – Can Sant Julia avoid defeat to go through?

Sant Julia are just 90 minutes away from progressing through to the 1st qualifying round of the Europa League following last week’s 1st leg win.

The visitors recorded what could be a valuable 3-2 win at home in the 1st leg of this Europa League preliminary round tie.

Recent overall results have produced a mixed return for the Andorran club who have recorded 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in their last 9 matches in all competitions.

They’ve gone 3 away matches without a win prior to Thursday night’s clash in Gibraltar, which consists of 2 losses and a draw in the domestic 1a Divisio.

It must also be pointed out that Sant Julia also possess a wretched record away from home in the Europa League too.

In their brief history at this level, Sant Julia have lost all 8 of their away ties in this competition, scoring just 1 goal in the process.

This means that Sant Julia have failed to score in 7 of these last 8 away ties, so they look to be up against it in Gibraltar.


Key-Facts – Europa v Sant Julia

  • Europa have won 10 of their last 11 home matches in all competitions
  • Europa have recorded just 1 win at home from their last 5 in the Europa League
  • Sant Julia have lost all 8 of their away ties in this competition


Betting Tips Verdict

Europa are favourites to win this 2nd leg, but Sant Julia now have something to protect and they could make this a close tie.
