Competition: Champions League qualifiers
Market: FC Sheriff win
Odds: 19/20 @ BetUS
Needing to mount a second-leg comeback and extend on their Champions League qualifying adventure on Tuesday evening, FC Sheriff will welcome Farul Constanta to Tiraspol.
Starting with the hosts, putting in a flat first-leg display on foreign soil last week as they eventually slumped to a disappointing 1-0 loss, Sheriff know that they must now go about things the hard way on Tuesday evening. However, despite facing an uphill battle when they return to Tiraspol here, Roberto Bordin’s men should still be confident of extending on their Champions League qualifying adventure in midweek. Lifting yet another Moldovan Cup back on May 28th thanks to a nail-biting penalties victory against Balti, the Wasps signed off the 2022/23 Super Liga campaign by enjoying a 13-match unbeaten un across all competitions. Excited by the prospect of making a return to home soil on Tuesday evening, Sheriff have certainly gained a reputation for their continued success in front of their own supporters. It is worth highlighting, the one-time Napoli midfielder has not seen his squad suffer a single loss in Tiraspol since the start of March.
As for the visitors, putting in a stunning display at the Viitorul last week as they claimed that first-leg 1–0 victory, Farul Constanta will be desperate to finish off the job here. However, despite keeping up their momentum over the weekend as they picked up another 1-0 victory against Hermannstadt, the Sharks will know that they face a tough challenge on foreign soil here. Opening July in the midst of a nightmare four-match losing run across all competitions, Gheorghe Hagi’s men have shown some extended issues on their travels this season. Including a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Warta earlier in the month, the reigning Romanian champions have won just a pair of their previous 10 straight showdowns away from the Viitorul – a run that stems all the way back to February 24th. While Constanta might hold a marginal advantage here, we are predicting a home victory in midweek.
