July 27th: Thursday’s Europa Conference League Double – 5/1 Special, Tips & Predictions

With the Europa Conference League qualifiers getting back underway on Thursday, we look set for what is a lively night of action from across the continent.

Ahead of a stacked schedule from the likes of Holland and Ireland, we have found a pair of Conference League qualifiers that are worth keeping an eye out for.

19:00 Twente vs Hammarby

Eventually punching their Conference League ticket last month following a nail-biting 2-1 aggregate victory against Sparta Rotterdam, Twente have continued on a stellar purple patch on either side of the summer interval. Signing off their Eredivisie campaign with a famous 3-1 romp at home against Dutch icons Ajax on May 28th, Thursday’s hosts now have their sights set on mounting a genuine European charge in 2023.

With their pre-season preparations highlighted by a 7-1 victory away at Danish outfit Odense, Joseph Oosting’s men are unbeaten in each of their last 11 straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to April 16th.

Likewise, ending the 2022/23 Eredivisie campaign by winning each of their final four top-flight matchups by an aggregate score of 15-1, it is no secret that the Tukkers have gained a real reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third.

Riding what has been a major wave of momentum since returning from June’s final international break, Twente will be confident of claiming a crucial first-leg advantage at the De Grolsch Veste in midweek.

On the flip side, while Hammarby might have claimed an eye-catching bronze medal finish among Sweden’s elite last season, Thursday’s guests have drastically failed to find a similar level this time around.

Failing to pick up any momentum last time out as they slumped to a disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Brommapojkarna, the Whites have continued to show some rather glaring inconstancies.

Along with opening July with a downbeat 2-0 defeat against Elfsborg, it should be noted that Martí Cifuentes’ squad have remarkably claimed just a single win on their travels from their last 11 attempts – a run that stems all the way back to February 25th.

19:45 Derry City vs KuPS

Extending on their Europa Conference League qualifying adventure earlier in the month as they secured a 1-0 aggregate victory against Faroese-based outfit Torshavn, Derry are certainly enjoying what has become an extended purple patch. Really hitting the ground running since returning from June’s international break, Thursday’s hosts should be smelling another golden chance here.

Picking up some perfect momentum last time out as they punched their FAI Cup quarter-final ticket thanks to a 3-0 romp against Athlone, the Irish giants have lost just one of their previous eight appearances across all formats.

With that continued flurry stemming all the way back to June 5th, the Candystripes will also be excited by their remarkable success on home soil.

Including their second-leg 1-0 win against Torshavn last week, it should be highlighted that Ruaidhri Higgins’ men have won each of their last four showdowns at the Brandywell Stadium by an aggregate score of 8-1.

Although KuPS might be excited to get their own Europa Conference League adventure underway here, the Canaries are in the midst of what has been an extended wobble.

Failing to pick up any momentum since returning from June’s fortnight break, Thursday’s guests have claimed just a single victory from any of their previous seven contests across all competitions.

Crashing out of the Suomen Cup earlier in the month at the hands of Mariehamn, Jani Honkavaara’s inconsistent squad are also enduring their longest winless run since the middle of April.

Facing what should be a tough challenge when they travel to he Brandywell Stadium in midweek, we are backing a home victory for a high-flying Derry.
