Levadia vs Dundalk – Europa League
In another one of the many games of this day of the match round regarding the qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League round of 16 2018/2019 of the 1st leg, in this Thursday’s game, in the city of Tallinn, in the Kadrioru Stadium, the Levadia team, and the Dundalk team, who have never met before this day.
The formation of the house comes to this meeting after having completed the previous season in the 2nd position of the Estonian championship, having finished with the best record both in defensive and offensive level, with more than 100 goals scored in only 36 rounds played, which shows well the lag in this competition.
They are already in their current season, having already played 18 matches in the national league (and a series of other games in the Estonian Cup), coming from a positive phase of results (5 wins in the last 7 matches).
As for the visiting team, they enter this first leg of the tie also with their season to go, having already played 25 matches in the Irish championship, being the team with more goals scored and with the fewest conceded goals (63-12, respectively), coming from an excellent winning streak, having won all their last 11 matches played in Ireland.
Prediction Levadia vs Dundalk:
Given that both teams dominate (or almost) within their respective national championships (although these are quite different from the European ones, of course), I believe that this “bad habit”, let’s call it that, will make the two sets tend to have an offensive stance in this encounter, in the image of what they do internally, leading to higher chances of goals.
Prediction Today: 1 more goals HT
