F91 Dudelange Prediction – Can Dudelange gain 1st leg advantage?

Tuesday night’s 1st leg hosts, F91 Dudelange, head into this Champions League encounter having put together an extraordinary unbeaten run.

An impressive sequence of 19 matches without defeat in all competitions places the 1st leg hosts of this qualifying tie in a strong position.

Results on home turf at their Stade Jos Nosbaum are equally impressive as Dudelange have won their last 4 matches on the trot.

Recent victories against Victoria Rosport and Hamm Benfica in the National Division helped Dudelange to another league title at the end of last season.

A cup win over Etzella Ettelbruck and a friendly win over Excelsior Virton complete this quartet of victories, amidst a solid unbeaten run.

Dudelange are unbeaten in their last 11 matches on home turf and during this sequence, the hosts have scored a total of 32 goals.

Whilst it’s true to say that Dudelange have struggled in the Champions League in their recent history, they’ve still played regularly at this level.

The hosts are without a win in the Champions League from their last 11 matches, but this could very well change here tonight.

Valletta Prediction – Can Valletta avoid defeat in Luxembourg?

Valletta claimed the Maltese Premier League title at the end of last season, pipping rivals, Hibernians to top spot on superior goal difference.

However, the visitors just missed out on the domestic ‘double’ as they were beaten on penalties in the final of the FA Trophy by Balzan.

This cup final defeat was followed by another loss, this time ion a club friendly at home against Gzira United in a 3-1 defeat.

Results away from home from their MFA Centenary Stadium have shown a solid return as they’ve lost just 2 out of their last 17 on the road.

They’ll now switch their attentions to this two-legged Champions League affair with F91 Dudelange with a 2nd qualifying round place at stake for both teams.

Valletta have also struggled at Champions League level though, winning just 1 of their last 10 matches overall in the competition.

The one success during this lean period was a 1-0 home win over Faroe Islands side, B36, but they’ve since slumped to 5 matches without success.
