Sheriff Tiraspol Prediction – Can Sheriff rule roost in 1st leg?

Moldovan side, Sheriff, look to be well on their way to already qualifying for next season’s Champions League 1st qualifying round before tonight’s 1st leg.

The Moldovan champions sit top of the domestic Divizia Nationala with a healthy 11-point cushion ahead of 2nd placed Sfintul Gheorghe already this season.

The hosts will now turn their attentions to this Champions League tie with Georgian outfit, Saburtalo Tbilisi, with their sights on reaching the group stages.

Sheriff Tiraspol are currently enjoying a purple patch of form as they’ve racked up 10 wins on the trot in all competitions.

The goals have also flowed in impressive fashion too as the hosts have scored an incredible 49 goals during this 10-match sequence.

With this type of form under their belts, it’s hard to see how Saburtalo Tbilisi will be able to match them for firepower up front.

They still have a point to prove on the Champions League front though as they fell at the 2nd qualifying round stage in last season’s attempt.

Saburtalo Tbilisi Prediction – Can Saburtalo keep up with Sheriff?

Similarly to their Wednesday night’s hosts, visitors, Saburtalo Tbilisi are currently midway through their domestic league campaign.

The visitors sit in 2nd place and just 1 point behind Erovnuli Liga leaders, Dinamo Tbilisi, prior to tonight’s 1st leg in this Champions League qualifier.

Saburtalo started their domestic league campaign in explosive fashion as they won their first 4 matches of the season on the trot.

Although they’ve continued to stay in touch at the top of the Erovnuli Liga, their form has dipped somewhat in recent times.

Just 1 win out of their last 5 matches in the Georgian top flight seems to confirm this, while 2 wins out of their last 7 away matches is also disappointing.

Within this slump in form on the road, are 3 defeats at Dinamo Batumi 4-2, Rustavi 3-1 and Lokomotivi Tbilisi 1-0.

In addition, the bigger picture indicates that Saburtalo have kept just 3 clean sheets out of their last 15 matches away from home in all competitions.

This doesn’t bode well for the visitors as they prepare to face a free-scoring Sheriff outfit tonight.
