Shamrock Rovers vs Breiðablik odds and betting statistics



Shamrock Rovers vs Breiðablik match preview

Will this be the start of another memorable European campaign for Shamrock Rovers?

Last year, the Hoops made it to just their second-ever UEFA group stage, 11 years on from their first, overcoming Hibernians and Shkupi en route.

Having got a taste of big-time European football, Stephen Bradley’s League of Ireland Champions are determined to get there again.

Breiðablik meanwhile have already had to come through two Champions League matches just to get this far.

The Icelandic champions hosted the preliminary round tournament last month, during which they smashed Tre Penne 7-1 and then Budućnost Podgorica 5-0.

So now, Óskar Hrafn Þorvaldsson’s team are seeking to win three European ties in the same season for the first time ever.

So, with a second leg to come at Kópavogsvöllur, Rovers will feel they simply must win at Tallaght Stadium.

The reward on offer for the winners is a Champions League second qualifying round date with FC København.

The consolation prize for the losers is a meeting with the losers of Ferencváros vs Klaksvíkar Ítróttarfelag in the Europa Conference League second qualifying round.
