After a surprising result in the first game played in Wales, TNS is heading for another part of the Brittain, which is just overseas, Gibraltar. Europe FC made quite an unexpected success, and they have a 2-1 advantage, which just might be decisive in this matchup. Also, we are about to see how will the Saints respond, and can they overcome this situation.
Do have in mind, that the weather conditions in Gibraltar are very hostile, because the temperatures are high, and that will be one more obstacle for the visitors.
Because of all this, it will be the most interesting fixture this Tuesday, and we are going to bring you a preview of it.
Europe FC Preview
First of all, we have to say that Europe FC is a combination of the Spanish and English players, very well balanced. They know what their goal is, at any phase of the game, and they demonstrated this last week in Oswestry.
Europe FC players patiently waited for TNS’ mistakes and quickly reacted scoring two goals on counter-attacks. The plan for the upcoming game will be the same. Patience and quick counter-attacks, as the guests need to attack right from the start. They have 8 straight victories. During this span, Europe FC scored at least 2 goals in 7 matches. Also, they kept clean sheets on 6 occasions.
The New Saints Preview
A friendly game against Brickfield Rangers pretty much deceived their fans. TNS won 12-1, and maybe this was one of the reasons why they underestimated the champions of Gibraltar.
Wales team didn’t manage to use the home court advantage and to valorize the initiative they had. Therefore, they will face a tough challenge now. Hot conditions, one goal down and for certain entirely different criteria of refereeing, all of this will be against TNS. Not counting the above-mentioned friendly game, TNS ended the last three games with both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.
But before this, in 6 fixtures they participated, 5 finished with bothe teams not to score. TNS has two straight competitive games in which they lost. The finals of the Welsh Cup, and against Europe FC, and this is something unpleasant for them.
Head to head matches
They met for the first time in history 7 days ago. Alex Quillo scored the opening goal for Europe FC. Scott Quigleye equalised one minute before the halftime and Kike Gomez shocked the home crowd in the 78th minute.
Europe FC vs TNS Prediction
According to the bookmakers, the home team is a slight favourite, and having in mind that they know to set the tactics very well, we are also, backing this claim. Therefore, they are closer to win. And the odds on this outcome are very generous.
Regarding goals, our opinion is that this meeting won’t see a lot of them. Under 2.5 is the first choice, and also we think that the hosts will impose a low tempo of the play.
You can combine these two bets and try a longshot, which might easily happen.
