Thursday, July 11 at 19:00, modest Connahs Quay receives Kilmarnock’s first-hand tour of the Preliminary Round 1 of the UEFA Europa League. The Rhyl match will be arbitrated by the Belgian Lambrechts, and gamblers around the world expect a comfortable hit for visitors.
Kilmarnock was a revelation last season in Scotland, winning admirable results in front of giants such as Celtic Glasgow or Glasgow Rangers. Without a goal scored this summer, white-blue look with enthusiasm for the European season, and the first opponent is extremely approachable. We must not be fooled by the scores recorded in the matches with Gaz Metan Medias (0-0) and Dinamo (0-3), because the Kilmarnocks have a competitive lot.
Connahs Quay finished in second place in the Wales league behind TNS champion, but the level difference between competitions is huge. In Wales there is a lot to mark, because the defenses are slow and rudimentary, while Kilmarnock has a status that should not be ignored. Trained by Angelo Alessio, the Scots are a homogeneous band, and the white-blue team is now found Laurentiu Branescu, a loan from Juventus. Kilmarnock finished 3 last season, with one of the best defenses.
PREDICTION: Over 2,5 goals @ 1,50
