Saburtalo Prediction – Can Saburtalo progress?

After their early foray into the Champions League, Georgian hosts, Saburtalo, look to be heading in the right direction in the Europa League.

Although things started well in the Champions League with a 3-0 win away at Moldovan club, Sheriff, it was the start of their decline in the competition.

The 2nd leg resulted in a 3-1 loss at home and although they went through 4-3 on aggregate, they were to be sent crashing out of the competition.

A heavy 5-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb eliminated them but they’ve been given a second chance at European football in the Europa League.

Last week’s 2-1 win away at Ararat-Armenia in the 1st leg sets them up nicely for a home tie at their Mikheil Meskhis sakhelobis Stadioni on Wednesday night.

Despite recxent form at home being quite ordinary with just 1 win from their last 5 matches in all competitions, Saburtalo have a great chance of returning to winning ways here.

Tonight will actually be their first ever home tie in the Europa League, but home form in the Erovnuli Liga has seen Saburtalo lose just 1 of their last 16 matches on home soil.

Ararat-Armenia Prediction – Can Legia Warsaw still qualify?

After last week’s 1st leg 2-1 defeat at home to Wednesday night’s opponents, Saburtalo, Ararat-Armenia immediately bounced back with a win.

A 3-1 home win over Gandzasar in the Armenian Premier League saw the visitors return to winning ways but they face a tough trip to Georgia on Wednesday night.

Ararat-Armenia were also sent packing from the Champions League early on, losing 4-3 on aggregate to Swedish club, AIK.

However, a 4-1 aggregate win in the subsequent Europa League tussle against Gibraltar club, Lincoln Red Imps saw them progress to this 3rd qualifying round.

Overall form away from home has been pretty steady for Ararat-Armenia as the visitors have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.

That loss was at AIK in the aforementioned Champions League clash, but there’s only a very limited sample of away form in the Europa League.

Ararat’s only away tie so far in this competition resulted in a 2-1 win at Lincoln Red Imps, but having lost at home to Saburtalo, the signs for this 2nd leg aren’t good.


Key-Facts – Saburtalo v Ararat

  • Saburtalo have lost just 1 of their last 16 home matches in the league
  • Saburtalo take a 2-1 lead into this 2nd leg against Ararat-Armenia
  • Ararat-Armenia have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches away from home


Betting Tips Verdict

Saburtalo should get over the line here, but take the hosts with the handicap just in case it’s a draw.
