The 1st legs of the 2nd qualifying round in the Champions League continue on Wednesday night and our next fixture features a clash between Slovenian side, Maribor, and Swedish outfit, AIK, as the betting tips continue at the Ljudski vrt ground.

Maribor Prediction – Can Maribor secure vital 1st leg lead?

The hosts will head into the 1st leg of this 2nd qualifying round in the Champions League in confident mood after recording a convincing win in the previous round.

Maribor registered an emphatic 5-0 win on aggregate over two legs in the 1st qualifying round of this competition against Icelandic outfit, Valur.

A 3-0 win away from home in the 1st leg at the Vodafonevöllurinn in Iceland was followed by a solid 2-0 win on home turf at their Ljudski vrt ground.

Overall results in recent weeks have been promising for Maribor as Wednesday night’s hosts have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches in all competitions.

That loss came in the shape of a 2-1 loss at home to Triglav in the Maribor 1.SNL, but 3 wins from these last 5 matches places the hosts in a strong position.

In addition, Maribor have performed well on the Champions League stage in recent times despite their heavy loss to Liverpool a couple of seasons ago.

A heavy 7-0 loss at home to The Reds has been Maribor’s only defeat out of their last 8 matches overall in this competition.

AIK Prediction – Can AIK build on previous round?

Despite being handed a 2-1 loss in the 1st leg of the 1st qualifying round of the Champions League, AIK bounced back in emphatic fashion.

The visitors seemed to be heading for an early exit from the qualifying rounds of the Champions League against Armenian outfit Ararat-Armenia.

However, AIK quickly erased the 2-1 deficit and ended up completing a memorable comeback with a 3-1 win in the 2nd leg on home turf at their Friends Arena.

They’ll now head over to Slovenia in confident mood after that morale-boosting victory, as well as impressive recent results under their belts.

AIK have recorded 4 wins out of their last 5 matches in all competitions with wins against Kalmar, Elfsborg, Ararat-Armenia and Helsingborg.

The visitors have produced mixed results in their short Champions League history to date, but they’ll be confident they can stay in this tie against Maribor.

Also, the fact that Maribor and AIK have never met before in any competitive match might work in AIK’s favour here.


Key-Facts – Maribor v AIK

  • Maribor have lost just 1 of their last 8 home ties in the Champions League
  • Maribor have won 3 of their last 5 matches at home in all competitions
  • AIK have recorded 4 wins out of their last 5 matches in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict

Both Maribor and AIK possess dangerous attacking quality and both should hit the back of the net in this 1st leg.
