Reason For Llandudno vs Ifk Goteborg Betting Tips
3rd place finishers in the Welsh Premier League Llandudno went in to last week’s clash at the Swedish Allsvenskan runners up IFK Goteborg as massive underdogs, and it showed on the night. The hosting Swedes kicked off proceedings by opening the scoring after just 11 minutes, and within two minutes of the opener going in they were 2-0 up. They added a 3rd before the break before scoring two more in the final ten minutes to all but guarantee their progression in the Europa League.
IFK Goteborg have a long history in European competition, but in recent years they have failed to keep up with the biggest clubs on the continent and they haven’t managed to make the group stages since a Champions League group stage appearance in the 1997/98 season. However, they haven’t been eliminated in the 1st Qualifying Round since the 2006/07 season either.
The visiting Swedes are in decent form as well. They have won five of their last seven in all competitions and lost just once, although a poor start to the season means they are in 5th position in the Allsvenskan. They also have a league match coming up on Sunday, so they could opt to rest players now that the job is all but done in against Llandudno.
Llandudno haven’t covered themselves in glory in their first ever European appearance with that 5-0 defeat, but it was to be expected. The Welsh side were only promoted to the Welsh Premier League for the first time in 2014/15, and their first ever season saw them finish 3rd and earn a place in the Europa League.
This rapid rise to continental competition has left them with a significantly weaker squad than the vast majority of clubs in the competition, and that showed as IFK Goteborg opened up their defence twice in the first 15 minutes.
My prediction is for that to happen again on Thursday, with or without a weakened squad selection. Odds of 8/11 for IFK Goteborg to Win at Half-Time and Full-Time look excellent value considering the disparity between the teams, and I’m going for that along with a 3-0 correct score prediction at 7/1.
