Free Betting Tips for Shkendija vs Haverfordwest

If you can’t seem to decide on a bet, check our top betting tips for this duel here and then make your own Shkendija vs Haverfordwest prediction:

Total Goals: Even

With our first free betting tip, we back the game to have an even number of total goals. Shkendija have seen 6 of their 8 Conference League games over the last 2 seasons produce even number of goals. Also, at the end of last season in their domestic league Haverfordwest went on a similar run – 6 of their last 8 league games had even number of goals.

BTTS

Our next Shkendija vs Haverfordwest prediction backs both teams to score. Both sides are rusty after months without official matches so defensive mistakes can be expected. In any case, 4 of Shkendija’s last 5 home games had BTTS outcomes. Also, last season all of Shkendija’s 5 Conference League matches saw both teams scoring.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Shkendija vs Haverfordwest prediction is a slight contradiction to the previous free betting tip. Even if we think that both teams will score we don’t think there will be more than 2 goals in this match. Shkendija saw their last 2 Conference League games stay under 2.5 goals but produce BTTS outcomes. Also, on all their inexperience Haverfordwest are a tough team to break and only 1 of their last 8 official matches went over 2.5 goals.

Shkendija vs Haverfordwest Lineups and Team News

Shkendija

The North Macedonians Shkendija are certainly the big favourites in this tie. However, the Macedonians haven’t played an official match since early May and in general they tend to struggle to score goals in Europe.

The team is undergoing a major rebuild in the off-season too. So far, 4 of the regulars from the previous campaign left. Also, the 2022/23 top goalscorer Shala is linked with a move abroad. On top of all that Krasniqi and Aganspahic, both important attacking players, are doubtful with injuries.

Haverfordwest

Haverfordwest County are about to make their Conference League debut and the last thing the Welsh side would want is to suffer a humiliation. This will be the first official match for Haverfordwest since April so rustiness will certainly be a factor. Scoring against Haverfordwest is always hard and they conceded more than 1 goal only once in their last 9 official matches.

The squad is very young and there are only 4 players older than 26 in the team. No injury issues have been reported.
