Hibees Seek Redemption Against Minnows


There’ll be an expectant crowd at Easter Road tonight aniticipating a Hibernian win over Andorran minnows Inter Club D’Escaldes.

Anything less and there could be some dire consequences for manager Lee Johnson before the league season has even begun.

A late goal by Joe Newell wasn’t enough to save the Hibees from the embarassment of defeat to a club from the nation ranked second lowest in Europe but it has made tonight’s task a little easier.

After the 2-1 loss in the principality Johnson’s side need to win by at least a couple to get the job done inside 90 minutes and are just 1/4 to score two or more. They’re a backable 5/6 at SBK to hit three or more. That  should be the least they’re targeting against a side who are only competing in Europe for the fourth time in their history. Over 3.5 Goals for the home side also appeals at 2/1.

Another team with some wrk to do tonight are Rosenborg who welcome Crusaders to Lerkendal. The sides shared four goals last week in Belfast but the Norwegian side should show their quality at home this evening.

It’s not been a vintage season in Eliteserien for Rosenborg but they’ve found a bit of form in the last few weeks winning their last three. Crusaders finished 5th in Northern Ireland but qualified for Europe thanks to a lifting the Irish Cup thanks to a favourable run to the final.

Irish Premiership side Glentoran were knocked out in the previous round by Maltese opposition while Linfied trail 5-2 from their first leg against Polish opposition and Larne lost 3-0 in Kosovo so this is as much a bet against Crusaders as it is for Rosenborg. After scoring two at Seaview last week the Norwegians could go one better with three or more at 11/10.
