Ludogrets vs Shamrock rovers.Ludogorets have kept clean sheets in their four games this season.Shamrock have never won an away game in the Champions League.Ludogorets have lost just two of their last eight home European matches
Ludogrets have kept wins in four of their games, two in the League and both legs of their Champions League first qualifying round tie. They have kept clean sheets in each fixture, while they are on a run of nine victories in ten home outings dating back to last season.
Shamrock reached this round of the competition with a 3-0 aggregate win over Maltese side Hibernians, while they are unbeaten in five games in all competitions.
However, Rovers have managed just two victories in 16 away European games when they reached the group stages of the Europa League.
The Irish outfit have never won a Champions League / European Cup fixture on the road, while more recently they have failed to score in three of their last five on their travels in all competitions. We predict that Ludogorets will win this game to nil.
Linfield vs Bodo Glimt.Linfield are on a run just of two victories in their last ten European ties.Bodo have won seven of their last nine games.Linfield have managed just two victories in 14 home European games.
They scraped into the second qualifying round for the Champions League by beating Welsh champions TNS, but they required extra time to get through. They have never got past this stage of the competition.
Their record in European football is not strong, picking up just two victories in their last ten games, while only a couple of their last 14 home ties have ended in victory.
Bodo should be more match ready for this tie given they are mid-season back in Norway, where they sit in fourth place in the Eliteserien. They reached this stage by beating Faroe Islands outift KÍ 4-3 on aggregate, and they have been strong in Europe lately, reaching the Conference League quarter-finals last year.
They are also on a run of seven wins in their last nine matches, while six of their last nine away fixtures have ended in victory. Here we predict that Bodo Glimt will win this game. But also over 1.5 goals likely to be scored.
