The 2020-21 UEFA Europa League qualification rounds continue this week, when Scottish side Motherwell entertain Northern Irish opposition in Glentoran tomorrow evening. After finishing seventh and eighth in the previous two seasons, Thursday's hosts pipped Aberdeen to the final Euro qualification berth last term.

Glentoran did finished fifth in the Northern Irish Premiership last season, but had Robbie McDaid to thank for securing Europe. His 115th-minute winner against Ballymena United clinched a Europa League qualification place – but they needed a 1-0 win over Havnar Boltfelag in last week's preliminary round.

Who scored last Thursday? None other than McDaid, who graduated from Premier League newcomers Leeds' academy ranks in 2015. Can he play a pivotal role here too? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Motherwell vs Glentoran Betting Tips

Motherwell didn't exactly prepare for this game in encouraging style, losing late at home to Hamilton Academical last Saturday. Hakeem Odofin's 86th-minute winner – his first professional goal – was enough to sting Steve Robinson's men.

After all, they were dominant: 67% possession, 17 shots, more than double the completed passes (397, 81%) and successful dribbles. Yet they didn't even score, let alone earn a point or all three last time out.

David Turnbull was their best performer: three key passes, a game-high 99 touches, one interception and tackle – the midfielder was everywhere. It'll be interesting to see how he and his teammates respond on this occasion, against a Glentoran side motivated to progress here.

They've won each of their last three matches (all comps), lost just once in their last seven games and full of confidence. Will Mick McDermott's side spring a surprise away from home?

Motherwell vs Glentoran Correct Score Predictions

I think Glentoran will give Motherwell a good run for their money here, but the hosts will be expected to prevail in a close clash. Their dwindling form of late – no competitive wins since March – means they're an unconvincing favourite, so I'm predicting BTTS.
