Tip Reasoning

Inter Turku, who hail from Finland’s top-flight knew that they’d be in for a tough game ahead of the first leg, though they probably would’ve hoped to travel back home with more to show than a 4-1 defeat. Scoring an away goal was pleasing but conceding four times certainly wasn’t. Thursday’s hosts now have a mountain to climb.

They did get on the score-sheet, which was something that they were always going to have to do if they were to make headway in this tie, though overall, it’s tough to put a positive spin on Inter Turku’s first-leg efforts. Defensively, they looked very, very easy to breach, while they simply didn’t do enough going the other way. In fact, as they registered just a single shot on target and clocked only 0.41 expected goals for, we could say that they were somewhat fortunate to bag an away goal.

In contrast, Brondby did little wrong a week ago; they were strong going forward, both in terms of pressure and end-product, as they posted 16 shots, seven of which hit the target, and clocked 1.97 expected goals for. Such a figure suggests that they maybe didn’t full deserve to score four goals, though as they bettered their opponents in all areas and ended the game with an expected goal difference of +1.56, there can be no denying that they full deserved the victory.

On their own patch, Inter will be hoping to do better, though the aggregate score-line doesn’t help. Had the Finnish side been playing at home first, then they would’ve fancied themselves to keep things nice and tight, though now that they’re forced to open-up and chase the game, they could be in trouble. Their home record in Europa League qualifying isn’t great either, as they’ve lost each of their three previous qualifiers on their own patch, shipping a total 11 goals.

In the betting, ‘Brondby to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ stands out. Not only did the Danes prove that they’ve got more than enough quality to take advantage of Turku’s inferior rear-guard last week, but the fact that the hosts have no choice but to open right up and throw everything at this game should allow the visitors to add to their tally on the break. The tie is essentially over, so this is by no means a game to get excited about from a betting perspective, though all in all, with lots in favour, backing Brondby to once again punish weak opponents by notching at least twice is a fair option.
