Europa League at Ladbrokes

The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Europa League will be played on Thursday night and our next featured match sees Scottish outfit, Kilmarnock, taking on Welsh side, Connah’s Quay, as the betting tips continue at Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock Prediction – Can Kilmarnock seal victory at Rugby Park?

A 2-1 win in last week’s 1st leg away at Connah’s Quay was a welcome victory for the Scottish hosts, Kilmarnock, as they prepare for this return leg.

The Scottish outfit have now suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches overall in all competitions, so confidence will be reasonably high.

Their one defeat during this sequence was a 3-0 loss away from home at Dinamo Bucharest in a club friendly.

The hosts have won 4 of these last 6 matches which included wins against Hearts, Hibernian and Rangers towards the end of the Scottish Premiership season.

In the Europa League, Kilmarnock’s short history in the competition has yielded 3 wins from 5 matches played to date.

Victories over Irish side, Glenavon (home and away) along with last week’s win at Welsh club, Connah’s Quay mean they’ve made a good start to European football.

In addition, Killie have won 4 of their last 5 matches on home turf at Rugby Park in all competitions, so they look set to continue here.

Connah’s Quay Prediction – Can Connah’s Quay threaten?

The likelihood is that the visitors won’t threaten having registered just 1 win out of their last 6 matches in all competitions.

This win came in the shape of a 1-0 home win over Irish side, Cliftonville, in a club friendly back in June, but recent defeats may undo Connah’s Quay challenge here.

Losses to The New Saints in both the Welsh Premier League and then the Welsh Cup along with defeat to Kilmarnock will have been a blow to the Welsh visitors.

Recent results away from home have produced a mixed return for the visitors as they’ve recorded wins at Cardiff MU and Bala Town.

They’ve also lost at Caernarfon Town and The New Saints, so a trip to Kilmarnock may be beyond them in this 2nd leg.

Switching to form away from home in the Europa League, and Connah’s Quay won their first away tie in the competition with a win at Stabaek.

However, they’ve since lost their last 3 away ties in the competition with defeats at Vojvodina, HJK and Shakhtyor respectively.

  • Kilmarnock have won 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions at home
