Draw

Sligo Rovers carry momentum while Ólafur Jóhannesson’s men have home advantage. The form of the Icelandic outfit has been pretty disappointing in recent weeks. The away defeat against should not lead to a premature conclusion, as FH have generally been strong in home games. The stalemate can be a good expectation out of this game, as many of the recent first leg encounters for FH in the Europa League have finished this way.

Total goals under 2.5

FH have been unable to stop conceding goals even in the domestic competitions. They are up against a Sligo Rovers outfit with back-to-back clean sheets. However, FH have not been allowing the opposition to get a free run in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League. The expectation would be for more of the same in the Conference League matches.

Both teams to score – yes

Sligo Rovers have been able to find the back of the net in away matches with great consistency. They have failed to score in just one of the last five trips in all competitions. Meanwhile, FH have been quite disappointing in terms of the defensive record and the recent loss against Valour does not help the fragile confidence at all.

FH vs Sligo Rovers: Match Preview

FH

FH have had a decent amount of success in recent years when it comes to qualifying rounds in the Champions League and Europa league. The club can call upon the vast amount of experience accumulated over the last two decades. Recent form, though, suggests that FH may not be able to create a huge impact in the first leg of encounters. The priority for Ólafur Jóhannesson will be to keep that tie close and complete the job in the return leg.

Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers have had only a couple of seasons in the Champions League and Europa League matches. Yet, the team has the potential to come out successful when they are able to keep the first leg scores down. This will be a priority for Liam Buckley, who has seen the team make a sizable improvement since taking over the job in 2018. However, this will be Liam Buckley’s first experience of Europe with Sligo Rovers.
