Flora Tallinn vs NK Celje Betting Tips: NK Celje to Win / Over 1.5 Goals

Estonian champions Flora Tallinn return to the Champions League qualifiers looking to improve on last season ́s performance, which saw them eliminated 4-0 on aggregate by Czechs Rakow Czestochowa. 

Appearing in this competition for the tenth time in their history, Flora have never reached the Group Phase, and their record in UCL makes for fairly grim reading, Since 2003, Flora lost 15 and won just three of 21 previous games at this level - two against Hibernians of Malta, and one against Gibraltar outfit Lincoln Red Imps. 

With that kind of record, it comes as little surprise that the Estonians are priced up as big outsiders to claim a first-leg win on Wednesday. 

Recent form has been a little indifferent, with Flora slipping to a 1:0 loss at FCI Levadia last weekend. The Estonians have won just one of their last four matches domestically. 

Slovenian champions NK Celke, yet to kick-off their domestic campaign, arrive in Tallinn as odds-on favourites to claim a first-leg victory at A. Le Coq Arena. However, the away side have limited experience in this competition, making just one previous appearance in 2020. 

Damir Krznar´s side have enjoyed some recent European success though. The Slovenians eliminated Portuguese opponents Vitória de Guimarães and Belarusians Neman Grodno en route to the third qualifying round of the Conference League last season. 

While the visitors have limited experience at this level, their greater quality should see them prevail against a Flora side that so often struggles at this level.

I´m backing NK to win, and to score at least two goals at the A. Le Coq Arena.
