For fans of underclass European football qualifying rounds for the Champions League and the Europa League should be a real paradise. Numerous exotics from smaller UEFA member associations face each other in direct duels and try to write their own personal fairy tales. Last year, for example, it was F91 Dudelange from Luxembourg, who struggled sensationally through four qualifying rounds and then celebrated his premiere in the Europa League group stage. A similar goal, which under normal circumstances is very difficult to realize, is also in this season again 94 teams in mind, who want to put their luck to the test in the first round of the Europa League qualification.
Soccer Betting Prediction Breidablik vs Vaduz
Two of these clubs are Breidablik and Vaduz. According to the odds, the reigning cup winners from Liechtenstein are given the better chance of making the leap to the next round. For the first leg on Thursday, the starting position seems balanced. For a success of the Icelanders quotes of 2.25 in the top are offered, which nevertheless after all a probability of occurrence of 43% imply. For the Icelandic national champion of 2010, it will therefore primarily be about a home crowd, if possible, to remain without a clean sheet and to clinch a victory.
Because the guests, who currently belong to the fixed inventory of the second Swiss league, are qualitatively more accurate, however, we venture before the first-round first leg between Breidablik and Vaduz the prediction that the team of coach Mario Frick with at least a draw in the Liechtenstein home returns.
Breidablik – Statistics & Current Form
The ducks from Kópavogur are back on the second largest European football stage! Almost exactly three years after Breidablik, which translates as “the glorious” or even “the ducks”, could last qualify for the UEFA Europa League, the Icelanders will celebrate their comeback next Thursday. The Green-Whites have earned the qualification for the runner-up qualification in the past season. In the end, the title holder of 2010 lacked only two meager points on the champion Valur Reykjavik. Nonetheless, those in charge, especially against the background of being only sixth in the final billing in 2016 and 2017, were quite content with the cut. The joy of returning to the European business is huge and with the FC Vaduz, the Icelanders have also a counterparty in front of the chest, which at first glance must not be considered unbeatable.
The biggest international success of the club’s history so far was celebrated by the team from Kópavogur in the 2013/2014 season, when they defeated the Austrian representative Sturm Graz 1-0 in the first leg and only in the third qualifying round after penalties against FK Aktobe from Kazakhstan failed. Participation in the main competition of the Europa League remained the northern lights so far denied. Nevertheless, the overall record in the European Cup with four wins, three draws and five defeats and a minimal negative goal ratio (12:13) reads not so bad as expected. However, this does not change the fact that on Thursday night in the game Breidablik against Vaduz a tip on the host is associated with a significant risk.
Qualitatively, the Icelanders are under the bottom line namely weaker than the guest, who meets regularly in the second Swiss league on good opponents. The alleged advantage of the larger game practice may also be cited as a limited argument as a pro argument, since in Switzerland, the season begins next weekend and the preparation on the side of Vaduz’s should be well advanced. The current constitution in the first Icelandic league is also no encouragement, as both previous matches in July 2019 were lost. As a result, the reigning runner-up has already dropped the current leader KR Reykjavik to seven points. The slightly cracked self-confidence could cause Breidablik’s and Vaduz’s predictions, which are aimed at double the X / 2 chance, to be correct.
Expected formation of Breidablik:
➣ Gunnleifsson – Geirsson, Gudjonsson, Ingvarsson, Margeirsson, Muminovic – Yeoman, Lydsson, Thordarson – Mikkelsen, Bjarnason
➣ Coach: Gylfason

Vaduz – Statistics & Current Form
The football club Vaduz has been a regular guest on the European stage for several years. The regular participation in the UEFA Europa League, the red-whites earn but not about the league, but exclusively on the Cup competition. While Vaduz fights for points in the second-highest Swiss league and only finished sixth there in the past season, the former Swiss first division club in Liechtenstein’s home country can continue to compete in the national cup. FCV won this last seven times in a row.
Nevertheless, the trips to Europe were seldom characterized by lasting success. In 2015/2016, they narrowly lost in the third qualifying round against FC Thun. In 2011/2012, the Swiss were unable to qualify for Hapoel Tel Aviv in the penultimate round of qualifying and in 2009/2010 Slovan Liberec was one size too big. In this millennium, therefore, for the club founded in 1932 from the capital of Liechtenstein, no participation in a major European competition is yet to be booked. That the Swiss second division still is good for surprises, underpins, among other things, the progress in the past season against the Bulgarian record champions Levski Sofia. It does not need a big surprise on Thursday evening, because even with a draw coach Mario Frick and his charges would be lucky and go with a good starting position in the return leg in front of a home crowd. Anyone who makes a tip on X / 2 in the first leg between Breidablik and Vaduz will receive a maximum of 1.61.
In terms of form we can state that the Liechtenstein have already played several test matches. The absolute highlight was certainly the 1-0 victory against the reigning Swiss champions and Champions League participants Young Boys Bern. Only four days later, however, followed by an embarrassing 0: 4 against Kriens. The dress rehearsal on the weekend, however, was again victorious with a 2-0 win against Lustenau. The mood within the team is good and the confidence to throw the existing individual class profitably into the symbolic ring is great. As the Swiss Challenger league season starts next week, players should be in good shape. The bottom line is the guests thus definitely trusted at least one point in Iceland.
Expected formation of Vaduz:
➣ Ospelt – Göppel, Wieser, Schmid, thorn – Prokopic, Dossou, Lüchinger – Coulibaly, Frick – Cicek
➣ Trainer: Frick
Last matches of Vaduz:
⚽️ 06.07.2019 – Vaduz Vs. Lustenau 2: 0 (friendly)

Breidablik vs Vaduz Soccer Betting Prediction Explained
In Icelandic Kópavogur are then facing Breidablik and Vaduz. If we give credit to the betting odds, then we expect a fairly balanced first leg, in which the hosts were even considered by the bookmakers with the slight favorites role. We do not necessarily agree with this assessment, because after all, the guest from Liechtenstein has more individual quality and a greater wealth of experience on the European stage.
Key facts – Breidablik vs Vaduz tips
✔️ Breidablik conceded in the domestic league last two defeats in a row
✔️ Vaduz has been a regular in the Europa League qualification for many years
✔️ The guests defeated in preparation the Young Boys from Bern and are in an acceptable early form
The advantage of the match practice worked out by the bet providers can be also refuted, because only a week before the start of the season is also the Swiss second division in a perfectly fit condition. The fact that the Icelanders are under pressure to win at home and actually have to win in order to save themselves the chance to move into the next round can also turn out to be a burden. Bottom line, we would therefore prefer between Breidablik and Vaduz the tip on the double chance X / 2. Already with a draw, the men of Mario Frick would be satisfied, so it is unlikely that they will offer the home team a particularly large number of rooms. From a safe defensive Vaduz will not lose this game in our eyes.
