The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Europa League will be played on Thursday night and our next featured match sees Norwegian outfit, Haugesund, taking on Irish side, Cliftonville, as the betting tips continue at the Haugesund Stadion.

Haugesund Prediction – Can Haugesund confirm progress to next round?

Haugesund registered what could prove to be a vital 1-0 win in last week’s 1st leg tie at Cliftonville as they prepare for this return leg.

A 1-0 win away at Cliftonville’s Solitude ground in Belfast has now put Thursday night’s hosts in the driving seat ahead of this 2nd leg in Haugesund.

Since suffering a heavy 4-1 defeat at home to Valerenga in the Norwegian Eliteserien, Haugesund have bounced back in style with 2 wins and a draw.

A point away from home at Viking in a 0-0 draw in the Norwegian top flight as followed by last week’s 1st leg win in the Europa League.

Then on the weekend, Haugesund recorded a further morale-boosting 5-1 home win against Tromso in the league, so confidence will be high in Haugesund’s camp.

Having lost just twice at home out of their last 17 matches played in all competitions, Haugesund look well placed to progress to the next round here.

Cliftonville Prediction – Can Cliftonville make amends?

A 1-0 defeat at home at their Solitude ground in last week’s 1st leg Europa League tie against Haugesund has put the visitors on the back foot.

Just 1 win out of their last 4 matches overall has been all Cliftonville have been able to produce in recent matches, so it doesn’t look good for Thursday night.

A resounding 4-0 home win over Welsh club, Barry Town in the preliminary qualifying round of this competition seemed to send Cliftonville on their way.

However, last week’s defeat at home to Haugesund now means they’ll have to take risks going forward as they look to press for the win here.

Cliftonville have also registered just 1 win from their last 6 matches on their travels too, which was a 2-1 win at Derry City in a club friendly.

The story gets even worse though for the visitors when looking at their previous history on the road in the Europa League.

The Irish visitors have failed to win any of their previous 9 away matches at this level, with 5 wins and 4 draws to their name.


Key-Facts – Haugesund v Cliftonville

  • Haugesund have lost just 2 of their last 17 matches in all competitions
  • Haugesund have won 3 of their 4 previous Europa League ties at home
  • Cliftonville have failed to win any of their previous 9 away matches in the EL


Betting Tips Verdict

Haugesund with home advantage should register a reasonably comfortable win here with goals.
