NSI Runavik vs Hibernian Prediction & Betting tips
NSÍ and Hibernian meet at Svangaskarð, in a return match for this phase of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round), after the victory at home of Hibernian by (6-1) in the first leg. Attention to the house factor, since the NSÍ usually conquer different results at home and abroad.
The home team comes to this second leg with a disadvantage of 5 goals, but with the advantage of having scored 1 goal as a visitor in the first leg. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 21 matches they register 11 losses in away matches, with 4 goals scored and 38 conceded; against 2 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses at their stadium, with 6 goals scored and 21 conceded.
The NSI leaves for this unmotivated day, after having been defeated by Hibernian, by 6-1, that is to say, it is practically out of the next phase of this Europa League. We remember that the locals gained access to this competition due to the fourth position in the Faroe Islands Championship. Normally the trainer Sámal Erik Hentze chooses a style of direct game, using, in the majority of the occasions, the counterattacks to create danger: Knudsen is a very fast player and endowed technically. It is important to note that the locals have presented great difficulties in set pieces and in the finalization. For this according to game the coach can not count on the suspended Tróndargjógv.
The away team comes to this second leg with an advantage of 5 goals, but suffered 1 goal at home in the first leg. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 36 goals scored and 23 suffered. In the last 10 away matches Hibernian has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches.
The Hibernian leaves for this game with a victory over the NSI, by 6-1, thus giving an important step towards the next phase of the Europa League. In this game away from home the team guided by Neil Lennon should stay in a 4-4-2, privileging the organization, possession of ball and positional attacks, however, in some moments should act in a faster way: Boyle and Whittaker are very fast and exempt in the offensive transition. Striker Kamberi is the great highlight of this Scottish team, which scored 3 goals in the first leg. Without great absences for this game, the visiting coach must act in maximum strength.
