The Gabriels have a solid chance of advancing to the next round after winning the first leg 2-0. They must, however, have a successful trip to Gibraltar. To place the best bet, check out our Lincoln Red Imps vs Ballkani prediction.
Top tips and Lincoln Red Imps vs Ballkani predictions
Ballkani to win
Although the Imps will have the support of their home fans, I believe a win, much alone the outcome required to draw the series, is unlikely. In the first leg, the home team created relatively few chances and was outplayed in every aspect of the game. So my first prediction for Lincoln Red Imps against Ballkani is that the away team will win and proceed to the next round.
Under 2.5 goals
Kosovo were very defensive in the first leg, and with a two-goal lead, we are likely to see the same approach that worked to perfection. The home team will have trouble getting past the opposition defence, something they were unsuccessful at in the first game. So it won’t be unusual to see just one or two goals in this match.
Goals in both halves – no
The preceding game had a first half with minimal scoring chances and both teams went into the halftime break without scoring. The Imps lacked attacking potency, and the visitors are under no obligation to score because they must defend a two-goal lead. So there is a significant likelihood that there will be few goals and that neither team will score in both halves.
Lincoln Red Imps vs Ballkani match preview and latest team news
Lincoln Red Imps
The Gibraltar team performed poorly in the opening leg. They only shot four times in 90 minutes without much threat.
The team coached by Javier Munoz lost in official matches for the fifth time in a row. They have only won one friendly match in the last two weeks, against Marbella. Otherwise, the players’ performance in any of their lines has been subpar.
Ilir Daja’s team has been tremendously successful in recent weeks. Despite their loss in the Champions League play-off, they have won four straight games, three in the Conference League and one in the Kosovo First Division.
Ballkani has one foot in the next step as a consequence of the first leg outcome. Kosovo’s two goals came from Meriton Korenica and Lorena Trashi. On the first day of the local tournament, Nazmi Gripshi scored against Liria.
