st-patrick vs norrkoping Tip Reason:

Will Swedish side Norrkoping claim a victory in their visit to Dublin this week? They are bound for St Patrick’s Athletic in this Europa League qualifier on Thursday, in a clash which is likely to be tough for the Irish side. They had a winding road just to make it into this clash, while their poor record in Europe certainly counts against them. The Swedish side come into this one as favourites, but can they follow up on that tag and secure an away win to put one foot into the next round of qualifying? St Patrick’s Athletic made it this far thanks to a helping hand from UEFA. Waterford finished fourth in the Irish Premier Division last term, but after they were refused entry into Europe the place dropped down to fifth-placed St Pats. They gladly took the place, giving them their first taste of European football since 2016. This season Pats have made moves towards the European places, as they currently sit in fourth. Could that progression help them to a result in this clash? Pats failing to make last season’s top four probably doesn’t help their chase for this tie, while Norrkoping are out to continue their own European record. They got back into European competition in 2016 after a 16-year absence, while they are back once again and expected to book a place in the second qualifying round. They went out in the second round in their previous European campaign, while they make this trip with some decent domestic form pushing them forward. Norrkoping have won three of their last four matches in the Swedish top flight. They’re on the up and moving toward the European places in a close top half of the table, while they make this trip with three wins in their last four matches in the Europa League. They are expected to pull off a result here, especially given Pats’ mixed record at home so far. With four defeats to their name at this ground already, we have little faith in the Irish side getting a result on Thursday. The visitors should be worthy favourites, given that form is behind them domestically and in this competition. Meanwhile, St Pats have lost five of their last six home games in Europe, failing to win 12 of their last 13 Europa League matches. We think that Norrkoping are worthy favourites, so we’re backing the visitors to come away from with one with a first-leg advantage.
