UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying continues on Thursday as Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes welcomes Hungarians Puskas Academy to Estádio Dom Afonso Henriques.

The hosts make their return to European competition following a three-year absence, having finished in a respectable sixth spot in the Primeira Liga last season and they enter this contest as solid favourites to make it to the next round.

Back in 2019,  Guimaraes reached the group stage of the Europa League but finished bottom of a tough group containing Arsenal and Eintracht Frankfurt but they should fancy their chances here against the visiting Puskas Academy.

In contrast, the away side have very little experience at this level, although they did progress through one round of Conference League qualifying last season, overcoming FC Turku before bowing out to Latvians Rigas FC 5:0 on aggregate. 

Still in the midst of their pre-season, Puskas have suffered back-to-back friendly defeats against Hoffenheim and Slavia Prague, and while finishing third in last season´s Hungarian NB1, the visitors certainly boast far less experience at this level. As such, Guimaraes will be expected to book their place in the next round with relative ease.

Vitoria Guimaraes - Puskas Academy Betting Tips

Indeed, we´re backing the home side to take a big first-leg advantage to Hungary, and they should cover the -1 handicap with a comfortable victory against an overmatched Puskas Academy who will be happy if they have any chance come the return leg next week.

Final score 3:0
