Stake: 5/10 units
British football is already a number in European comparison. However, this mainly applies to the teams from the English Premier League. Celtic Glasgow and maybe the Rangers can also be thrown into this pot. Everything else that comes from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland can be seen as second class in the European Cup.
This also applies to last year’s third in the abandoned Scottish league from Motherwell and probably even more so for Glentoran Belfast, the cup winners from Northern Ireland. Both meet in the first qualifying round for the Europa League in a direct duel. At first glance, the prediction between Motherwell and Glentoran is clearly in the direction of a home win.
The Scots have the small advantage that the domestic Premier League is already back in full swing, while the Premiership in Northern Ireland has not yet started again. In addition, the Scottish League is considered to be significantly stronger compared to Northern Ireland. Therefore the tendency between Motherwell and Glentoran is strongly towards the home side.
Motherwell – Statistics & Current Form
The Scottish Premiership season is still young, but there is much evidence to suggest that The Well has gotten a used season into play. In the table of the Scottish League, Steve Robinson’s team is only third from last after five matchdays. The problems are currently unmistakable, especially in the attack.
Motherwell has no win this season
Motherwell hasn’t won any of their first five league games and has scored just two goals in those five games. Four times you were without your own hit. That is the balance of a relegation. Steve Robinson, however, has other ambitions and wants to play for the European places again. Maybe it helps to clear your head with a game in the Europa League.
But that will not be easy, the aftermath of the 0-1 defeat in the Lanarkshire derby against Hamilton can still be felt. The coach seems dejected and sometimes at a loss.
- “We don’t have a wand or a magical checkbook. We have to see that we can now get out of the misery with the existing staff. ” – Steve Robinson
Therefore, it looks as if in the duel between Motherwell and Glentoran the odds for a win with two or more goals difference between the Scots are rather negligible.
The personnel situation in Motherwell is also extremely tense. No fewer than five players are absent, especially on the defensive. In the current constitution, this is an additional aspect that makes the situation in Motherwell even more dramatic. A liberation is urgently needed on Thursday.
Probable formation of Motherwell:
Carson – Lamie, Gallagher, Mugabi, O’Donnell – Campbell, Turnbull – O’Hara, Lang, Seedorf – White

Glentoran – Statistics & current form
If there’s a good footballer walking around in Northern Ireland, he’s quick to kick it at the better clubs in England. Glentoran now wants to find a way to keep top performers in the club and possibly to recruit players from the Premier League. Top sport is what coach Mick McDermott wants and that is only possible with a strong team.
Glentoran with three wins after the forced break
After all, the Glens became national cup winners at the end of July and celebrated their first victory in the Europa League a week ago.
- “Mediocrity is a habit, and it may have been a habit in earlier years, but now I don’t accept it.” – Mick McDermott
In the preliminary round, Glentoran celebrated a 1-0 win over HB Torshavn from the Faroe Islands. Robbie McDaid was the shooter of the golden gate. However, this was not a result that caused fear and horror among the competition.
It is conceivable that Mick McDermott will play with the same formation as against Torshavn. This is also due to the fact that the Northern Irish lack the depth in the squad. Not every player can be replaced 1: 1. With Hrvoje Plum, a central man is missing in midfield, who is otherwise an absolute regular player, but is out longer with a cruciate ligament tear.
Probable formation of Glentoran:
Coleing – Kane, Cowan, McClean, Marron – Bigirimana, Clucac, Gallagher, O’Neill, Donnelly – McDaid

Motherwell vs Glentoran direct comparison

Motherwell is seen by bookies as the clear favorite in these matches. From the quality of both teams nothing speaks against it. However, The Well is in a deep crisis right at the start of the season. From the first five point games of the new season there were just two points.
Two own goals in five games are not enough to get multiple wins. That means that we do not expect the Scots to be very successful, especially since the guests from Northern Ireland won all of their three matches after the forced break, admittedly against opponents that were not that strong. Still, the first impulse is to tip the Scots between Motherwell and Glentoran.
Key facts – Motherwell vs Glentoran tips
Motherwell is still without a win in five competitive games this season.
Glentoran has won all three games after the restart.
Motherwell and Glentoran meet for the first time.
So we can imagine that the Scots will go through a round, but in view of the misery on the offensive we assume that The Well will not win high. We expect a home win with a maximum of one goal difference and therefore allude the odds between Motherwell and Glentoran to a handicap win for the Glens (+2).
