The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Europa League will be played on Thursday night and our next featured match sees Swedish outfit, Norrkoping, taking on Irish side, St Patricks, as the betting tips continue at the Östgötaporten ground.

Norrkoping Prediction – Can Norrkoping avoid a tricky 2nd leg?

Having secured a valuable 2-0 win away at St Patricks in the 1st leg of this 1st round tie, Norrkoping are now just 90 minutes away from booking their place in the next round.

With the hard work now seemingly done, the hosts just need to avoid a tricky 2nd leg and keep a clean sheet in this return leg.

The hosts have registered 4 wins out of their last 6 matches in all competitions and now look set to progress into the next round of the Europa League.

Victories against AFC Eskilstuna, 2nd placed AIK and 4th placed Hacken in the Swedish Allsvenskan gave the hosts momentum for last week’s tie.

Norrkoping duly delivered a fourth win in six matches at Richmond Park in Dublin, so the momentum is definitely with the hosts here.

Although previous experience at Europa League level has been limited to a handful of matches, Norrkoping’s home record is a good one.

They’ve collected 3 wins from 4 matches at their Östgötaporten ground with wins over GI Gota, Prishtina and Riteriai.

St Patricks Prediction – Can St Patricks cause upset in Sweden?

The Irish visitors will make their way over to Sweden having lost 3 of their last 4 matches overall in all competitions.

Defeat to Shamrock Rovers in the Irish Premier Division was followed by last week’s 1st leg loss in the Europa League and to Chelsea in a recent friendly.

Confidence is therefore liable to be fragile at best as the visitors look to chase down this 2-goal deficit against Norrkoping.

However, having won their last two away matches on the trot with league wins at UCD and Waterford, they may fancy their chances of causing an upset in this clash.

St Patricks have lost just 2 of their last 8 matches away from home, but these have all been on the domestic front.

Switch to results away from home in the Europa League and this tells a very different story for the Irish underdogs ahead of this 2nd leg decider.

They’ve failed to win any of their last 12 away matches in the Europa League, which includes no fewer than 9 defeats.


Key-Facts – Norrkoping v St Patricks

  • Norrkoping have won 4 of their last 6 matches in all competitions
  • Norrkoping have won 3 of their 4 home ties in the Europa League
  • St Patricks have lost 9 of their last 12 away matches in the Europa League


Betting Tips Verdict

A home win is therefore on the cards for Norrkoping and maybe to nil.
