Armenian Alashkert will play against the Maltese Hamrun Spartans in the first round of qualification of the League of Conferences. The match will take place on July 7, starting at 15:00 GMT.
League of Conferences
Alashkert did not have a very successful season in his championship. The club took second place, and because of this, it plays in the qualification of the Conference League.
Last season the club played in the main club tournament in Europe. In the first round of the Champions League, Conns-Key won ((3:2) – in extra time), and then lost to Sheriff (1:4).
The next tournament is the Europa League. Alashkert was able to win “Kairat” (3:2). But the Scottish “Rangers” (0:1) could not get into the playoffs on aggregate.
After the club made it to the main draw of the Conference League. In the group, he played against Maccabi Tel Aviv, Finnish HJK and Austrian LASK – the club took 4th place.
Hamrun Spartans, meanwhile, took third place in the Maltese championship. And got into European competition after the 90s.
The team doesn’t look good on defense. In the domestic league, Hamrun conceded 24 goals in 27 matches.
The club has been without playing practice for the second month. In the calendar schedule there are no even control games.
Hamrun Spartans played the last official match on May 7, as part of the last round of the Maltese championship. It was a victory over Birkirkara (1:0).
They offer to bet on the victory of Alashkert for 1.30, on a draw for 4.74, and on Hamrun Spartans – for 11.00.
Alashkert will probably play attacking football. The club is the favorite of this meeting. Our prediction for this match is over 2.5 with odds of 1.70.
