Dudelange Prediction – Can Dudelange progress in EL?

A 4-match unbeaten run in all competitions gives Thursday night’s hosts, Dudelange, a decent chance of gaining a 1st leg lead here in this Europa League tie.

Although they were eliminated from the Champions League when they narrowly lost to Maltese club, Valletta, Dudelange have another chance in this tie.

Despite the scores being level at 3-3 on aggregate against Valletta, it was the 2-2 draw in the home leg against the Maltese club which did the damage.

With 2 away goals, Valletta went through on the away-goal rule, but Dudelange have since bounced back with a win in the previous round of the Europa League.

The Luxembourg hosts secured a 3-2 win on aggregate over Macedonian outfit, Shkendija, to progress to this 3rd qualifying round.

They followed that with a 3-1 home win in the Luxembourg National Division on the weekend over Blue Boys Muhlenbach.

Results overall have been impressive for Dudelange as the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 25 matches in all competitions.

The host’s form on home turf at their Stade Jos Nosbaum in the Europa League has also resulted in just 2 defeats from their last 9 ties at this level.

Nomme Kalju Prediction – Can Nomme Kalju stay in Europe?

The Estonian visitors are another side that were sent packing out of the Champions League after suffering a heavy 7-0 loss on aggregate to Celtic.

However, Nomme Kalju’s exit from the elite European competition wasn’t before they registered a win over Shkendija, thanks to the away-goal rule in the previous round.

A 2-1 win away from home in the 2nd leg ensured their progression but the heavy defeat to Celtic may give them nightmares for months to come!

They were handed a 5-0 rout at Celtic Park before being beaten 2-0 at home in the 2nd leg, so confidence may not be as high now as they’d like.

That heavy loss in Scotland ended a run of 5 away matches without defeat but the majority of those results were achieved in the domestic Estonian Meistriliiga.

Switch to results away from home in the Europa League and Nomme Kalju’s situation becomes a very different situation.

The visitors have registered just 3 away wins from their 14 away ties played to date in this competition, so they’ll have their work cut out to get a result here.

Wins at Fram, Aktobe and B36 Torshavn were against relative European minnows, but Dudelange represent a much tougher proposition in this clash.
