These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Hibernians presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Shakhtyor

The home team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of using the home advantage to get a positive result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a home win against Minsk by (3‑2). Shakhtyor has won 7, tied 1 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.

Shakhtyor come to this game with a 3-2 win at Soligorsk, registering the third straight win in official matches. It is worth noting that the home team reach this first round of the Europa League after winning the 2nd position in the 2018 Belorussian Championship. To play with the support of their fans, coach Sergei Tashuyev should privilege the maintenance of ball possession and the attacks through aisles. To remember that Shakhtyor exhibit great competence in aerial play and defensive recovery. There is no weight loss for this first leg game.

Analysis of Hibernians

The team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss in away matches, with 34 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 31 goals scored and 18 conceded. In their last match, for the FA Trophy, they got a home loss against Valletta by (2‑3) after extended time. In the last 10 away matches Hibernians has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 14 of the last 16 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 14 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times but have turned the score around in 2. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 6 of their 14 goals between minutes (76'‑90') and 6 of their 14 goals between (31'‑45').

Hibernians were closer to winning the title of the Malta Championship, having finished with the same points of Valletta, but lost in the tiebreaker criteria: goal difference. In the last game, Hibernians lost in extra time against Valletta in the game to count towards the final of the Malta Cup. In this game against Shakhtyor coach Stefano Sanderra should work with a medium-low block and explore the space on the opponent's back to counterattack. Offensive midfielder Jake Grech is one of the important players in the team's style of play, and this player is of great technical and tactical quality. Out of this game by injury is Degabriele.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Jovičić, T. Tabone, A. Agius, Márcio Silveira, F. Apap, B. Kristensen, J. Grech, D. Vella, J. Mbong, T. Groothusen, L. Nanni.

Betting suggestion:

Looking at the squads of both teams it is possible to note that Shakhtyor's men take advantage in comparison to the opponent. On the other hand, Hibernians should not give up this tie, but they have no weapons to achieve a positive result. Having said this, we believe the hosts will enjoy the support of their fans to win in this first leg.
