Motherwell - Llanelli

Motherweell made a big improvement in past few years, making their way to the top Scottish clubs. Last season was under the expectations. Club finished the regular part of the season at the seventh place and played in play-out group. They didn’t reach a European qualification spot in domain competition, but got the fair-play invitation for UEFA Europa League. Motherwell have to start right from the beginning. In the previous European campaign, they promptly crashed out in the first round to AS Nancy of France. After many years in the club, manager Mark McGhee left the bench and went to Aberdeen. His place took the former Stockport manager, Jim Gannon. Another missing will be excellent striker David Clarkson who went to Bristol City, but Gannon made his first signing in ex-Tranmere midfielder Steve Jennings. This game will be played at Airdrie FC stadium as their home ground is closed because changing the grass. Despite they’ll have to start without any pre-season fitness work done, Motherwell is a clear favorite here.

Llanelli is the small amateur club from Wales, who qualified for Europa League – Qualification after they finished at the second place in domain league. As the preparation for this game, they defeated first division club Afan Lido 4-0. A few days before, club made a big signing, ex Swansea’s left back Michael Howard and he’s expected in the first eleven. But the “main face” in the club is their player-manager Andrew "Andy" Legg (42 years old). He is known for having the longest throw-in in football, being able to regularly throw the ball over 30 metres. He once held the world record with 41 m! Legg is raising the team’s morale and saying to Welsh press they’re not afraid, will try to make Motherwell run and to threat from the counter-attacks. The problem is, only eleven experienced players will be available to him. However, I expected more than defensive attitude from Llanelli, with probably ten players on 30 metres from the own goal. 

It is the fact Motherwell have much more quality. But also, facts are they’re with new coach, without the best player, game won’t be on their ground and they’ve just started with the preparation for new season. I expect hard defence from the visitors and think they can resist first 45 minutes. So, with the small bet I go for a home win, but after the draw at the half-time. Odds are around 5.00.
