Linfield hosts The New Saints in Belfast in a second game from the Champions League’s first qualifying round. Stay with us because we will take a look at it in our online football prediction.

The Welsh side has a small advantage after the first leg. Last week these two teams had a competitive game, but The New Saints managed to secure a 1-0 win at the Park Hall Stadium. The only goal in the game was scored in the 57th minute when Ryan Brobbel put the ball behind the goalkeeper Christopher Johns’ back. This win gives the Welshmen a bigger confidence that they might reach the Champions League second round of qualifiers.

Now Linfield’s manager David Healy must look for a way to bring his team back in the tie. It’s quite possible that he would make some changes in the line-up as well. Players like Kyle McClean and Jordan Stewart started from the bench last week, but they could be trusted on Wednesday.

The New Saints are aware that it’s a great opportunity for them to reach the second round of qualification in the Champions League. The Welsh side did its job in the first leg, but they also know there’s 90 more minutes to play. They are favorites in Belfast, but nothing is decided just yet.

The manager Anthony Limbrick won’t make many changes compared to the first leg, if he makes any. The experienced Polish striker Adrian Cieslewicz is one of the options Limbrick can use to refresh the attacking line. He’s well-trusted at the club as he plays for The New Saints since 2014.

That’s our online football prediction for the Champions League qualifying game between Linfield and The New Saints. The Welsh side looks closer to the next round, but it’s still not done – let’s see how Linfield will react to what happened in the first match.
