The New Saints to Win

The New Saints were just eight minutes away from securing a first-leg lead against Glentoran in Northern Ireland last week and the more continental-savvy Welsh outfit are our pick to bag a victory on their second attempt. TNS have enjoyed deep runs in European competition qualifiers in recent seasons and their vaster top-level experience should prove pivotal against Glentoran. In addition, The New Saints have tasted defeat just once in their last 19 matches at home.

Over 1.5 The New Saints Team Goals

The New Saints have a superb home record that spans almost an entire year and alongside some sparkling results, TNS have been shown themselves to be proficient goalscorers. The Welsh club have scored at least twice in 14 of their last 19 fixtures at Park Hall and they are priced generously to hit at least two goals against a Glentoran defence that shipped a whopping five goals the last time they played a European away game at Motherwell in 2020.

Both Teams to Score

Jamie McDonagh’s first-leg equalizer for Glentoran earned them a share of the spoils in Northern Ireland last week and that was the 13th straight fixture in Europe where TNS failed to keep a clean sheet. We expect The New Saints to concede again on Thursday, though they have the firepower to blast back at the other end. With that considered, back both teams to score for the second encounter in a row between the clubs.

The New Saints vs Glentoran: Match Preview

The New Saints

The New Saints fell at the final hurdle in two of their last three attempts to make the money-spinning group stage of the Europa League, though the Welshmen will be doubly determined to go one better in UEFA’s new Conference League competition this term. TNS have a new man at the helm this year in Australian coach Anthony Limbrick and the young tactician will be desperate to add to his reputation through continental success.

Glentoran

Glentoran have struggled with the step-up in class that comes with competing in Europe over the past decade, though they remain one of Northern Ireland’s most formidable teams. Manager Mick McDermott has won an impressive 58.33% of his games in charge since his appointment in March 2019, though none of his 21 victories have come outside his homeland.
