Thursday is firmly in the hands of the UEFA Europa League. There are only a few Thursdays in the summer / fall when the football fan does not get his money’s worth. Also this week there are countless games to see again. The level is in many places still manageable, after all, we are only in the first qualifying round. Here are the second legs on the program. The only Liechtenstein professional club from Vaduz meets Breidablik Kopavogur from Iceland!
Today’s Betting Tips Vaduz vs Breidablik
The hosts from the principality are integrated in the regular league operation in Switzerland and play there in the second division. Qualified for the Europa League, the club has the Cup victory in their own country. Although the visitors from Iceland are in the top flight, Breidbalik is by no means a favorite. The level of the first Icelandic league is by no means higher than that of the second Swiss league. In this respect, it is understandable that Vaduz against Breidablik Kopavogur according to odds in the home game is the favorite.
Vaduz – Statistics & Current Form
The intended return to the Swiss football upper house missed the FC Vaduz in the last season but relatively clear. As a table sixth, the team of head coach Mario Frick classified only in the midfield of the table. In 2019/20, the only professional club from the Principality of Liechtenstein will once again launch an attack to be represented again as an unloved “guest” in the Swiss Super League. From 2014/15 to 2016/17 Vaduz was last represented in the first Swiss league.
Since September of last year, Mario Frick, the best Liechtenstein football player of all time, is head coach at his home club. The expectation is huge and a current point cut of 1.32 points per game (34 games) so far expandable. The qualification for the group phase of the Europa League is a Utopia in view of the possibilities. Nevertheless, a failure in the first round would be a bitter disappointment. The early game date is certainly not ideal. The previous preparation was extremely changeable. A victory against Swiss champions Young Boys (1-0) was a powerful exclamation point, but a fierce 0-4 defeat by Kriens brought Vaduz back to baseline.
Despite the recent break, Vaduz still faces major staffing issues and faces a handful of players due to injury. Big changes in the root formation compared to the previous week are not expected. Hope is certainly the home record. In the past season Vaduz acted much more in the Rheinparkstadion than in the foreign. In this regard, between Vaduz and Breidablik Kopavogur the tip on the hosts is quite interesting.
Expected formation of Vaduz:
➲ Büchel – Sülüngüz, Simani, Schmid – Antoniazzi, Wieser, Gajic, Gasser – Prokopic, Schwizer – Cicek

Breidablik Kopavogur – Statistics & Current Form
Thanks to the European Championship 2016 in France, Icelandic football has experienced a veritable high-altitude flight. The national team celebrated great successes and was able to play in the “Concert of the Great”. However, club football is not keeping pace with this development and the Icelandic club teams can still be considered as second-rate.
In Iceland, a year-round championship is played. The season lasts only 22 games, because in the Icelandic football upper house are only twelve teams that compete in the first and second leg against each other. Breidablik Kopavogur took second place with 44 points and narrowly missed the second championship. There are currently 12 out of 22 laps in Iceland and the gap to KR Reykjavik is already seven points. The championship title will probably not be an issue for the team of head coach Agust Thor Gylfason in 2019 either.
Actually, match practice in recent weeks should be a big advantage for Icelanders. Nevertheless Breidablik Kopavogur needed a lot of time to find his way around Vaduz. While Vaduz has a professional operation, Breidablik Kopavogur does not. Many players have yet to complete another job and accordingly, the balancing act is extremely difficult.
Goalkeeper and captain Gunnleifur Vignir Gunnleifsson, for example, is already 44 years old and a true veteran. Without wanting to offend the players, the quality of the team from the north of Europe is certainly weaker than with FC Vaduz. Should Vaduz and Breidablik Kopavogur’s prediction on the progress of the guests be correct, this could definitely be considered a surprise.
Expected formation of Breidablik Kopavogur:
➲ Gunnleifsson – Muminovic, Helgason, Margeirsson – Gunnlaugsson, Lydsson, Yeoman, Geirsson – Mikkelsen, Thordarson, Eyjolfsson
Last matches of Breidablik Kopavogur:
