The lack of European experience might be evident in the case of Newtown, who have been picking up outstanding away results in the Welsh Premier League. However, Dundalk are quite strong when it comes to the first leg of European games. They should be able to handle this tricky encounter against one of the home nations.

Total goals over 2.5

The first leg encounters for Dundalk in European competitions have been close contests with not much to separate the two outfits. The last high-scoring game for Dundalk in the qualifying rounds of in European competition was back in 2010-11 when they lost 6-0 to Levski Sofia. This time around, Newtown’s disappointing defence could pave way for a high number of goals.

Both teams to score – yes

The recent defensive of the Dundalk has taken a beating with the team conceding too many goals even in the domestic Irish league. Newtown are heading into this game with a fantastic scoring record on the road. Even though the quality of Dundalk will be significantly greater than the quality that Chris Hughes’ men are used to in the local domestic competitions, this game might see goals at both ends.

Dundalk

Dundalk are in the middle of the campaign and this should help Vinny Perth’s men immensely in terms of their fitness levels. The team, though, has been conceding at an alarming rate with no clean sheets in the last 13 home games across all competitions. The goalless draw with Bohemians in October 2020 marks the last home clean sheet for the team.

Newtown

Chris Hughes has done a brilliant job with Newtown over the years. After steadily progressing with the club through the Welsh Premier league, he has been able to take the team into Conference League standards. The first taste of European football should be good for Newtown with the team finishing last season with a lot of positivity.
