Hibernians Double Chance

San Marino minnows Folgore and perennial underperformers Hibernians both harbour slim hopes of making it to the Europa League Group Stage this season, though the Peacocks hold an advantage over their hosts that could allow them to avoid defeat in Tuesday’s first leg. The Maltese outfit have 20 years of continental experience behind them and that extra knowhow should be a telling factor this week.

Both Teams to Score

Folgore have been a reliable bet in the BTTS market for much of 2021 and both teams scored in six of their last eight competitive games in a run that included several matches from the back end of last season. Hibernians meanwhile have kept just three clean sheets in their last 26 European matches, so a shutout for the Peacocks looks unlikely in San Marino.

Hibernians +1 Match Handicap

Remarkably, Folgore haven’t scored a goal in Europe since 2015 and while modest goal-getters Hibernian shouldn’t be expected to blow their hosts away, they look a safe bet in the +1 stakes against their shot-shy hosts. A +1 goal bet on the visiting team landed in three of Folgore’s last four home tests and our tip recommends sticking to the same market for Tuesday.

Folgore vs Hibernians: Match Preview

Folgore

Little is expected of San Marino champions in the Europa Conference League this season and with a new domestic campaign on the horizon, Omar Lepri’s part-timers will see their continental conquest as an exciting adventure rather than a possible avenue for success. Folgore won the title in their homeland for only the second time since 2000 in 2020/21.

Hibernians

Perennial European whipping boys Hibernians were dismissed by Flora from Estonia in the preliminary phase of the Champions League earlier this month, though a move to the Conference League qualifiers was a welcome consolation prize. Domestic success will take precedent over any continental distractions this term however. The Peacock’s haven’t lifted the title in Malta since 2017, but having finished as runners-up last season, Stefano Sanderra’s troops will hope to go one better this time around.
