This match has finished. To watch current games go to the sections Today's Football Predictions, Football Betting Prediction for Tomorrow or Football Predictions for the Weekend.

After earning an automatic berth into the Europa League group stages last season, Standard Liege will be disappointed they have to play so early into the competition.

Nonetheless, they entertain Welsh side Bala Town knowing that victory will edge them one step closer to another campaign among Europe's top opposition. They finished third in a group with Arsenal and Eintracht Frankfurt last December and will be itching to redeem themselves.

But it's important they don't look too far ahead, against a Bala Town side that are serious underdogs but squeezed past Valletta to get here. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Standard Liege vs Bala Town Betting Tips

Bala Town were stung by a stoppage-time equaliser, as English midfielder Sameron Dool scored during their 1-1 away draw against Connah's Quay Nomads.

Not exactly ideal preparation for a significant step up in quality against Liege, who finished fifth in Belgium's Pro League last season. Six points adrift of the Champions League qualification places, Philippe Montanier knows his team shouldn't be here.

But whether they like it or not, they are. How they respond to playing lower-quality opposition will prove decisive, having had their unbeaten start to the new campaign ended last weekend.

Oud-Heverlee Leuven were 1-0 winners on MD5 through Leicester loanee Kamal Sowah, after fullback Nicolas Gavory was sent off on the hour mark after two bookings.

Maxime Lestienne, formerly of Club Brugge and Rubin Kazan, limped off midway through the first-half and is unlikely to feature for the hosts. It'll be interesting to see how Montanier deals with that injury blow, to one of his most influential forwards.

Nonetheless, they have multiple options and watch out for talented teenager Nicolas Raskin too – the 19-year-old has started all five league games this term.

Standard Liege vs Bala Town Correct Score Predictions

Although Bala did well to even find themselves in this situation to begin with, I'm  not convinced they are capable of matching – let alone beating – Standard Liege here. The hosts are motivated to respond after their weekend defeat and that could easily spell trouble for Colin Caton's men in Liege.
