Bit O’Red to forge ahead in our 5/1 European Conference League acca

Sligo Rovers and Bohemians should see off Icelandic opposition in the Europa Conference League, and we’re going for goals in Wales as The New Saints take on Glentoran.

The brand-new Europa Conference League is underway and to say it's a long road to the final in Albania would be an understatement!

We're focusing on the second legs of the first qualifying round, and at first glance the most noticeable thing about the teams competing is that they'd get you a cracking score in Scrabble.

However, don't worry if you don't know your Vllaznia Shkoder from your Swift Hesperange, we've done the hard work for you and come up with a four-team acca ahead of all the action.

Sligo Rovers vs FH Hafnarfjordur

Sligo fell to a 1-0 defeat in Iceland but were by no means outclassed in their return to European soccer after six years.

Had the Bit O'Red not had Greg Bolger sent off in the 77th minute it could have been a very different story, as the hosts scored the winner with just five minutes to go.

So we're expecting a much better result from Sligo at the Showgrounds, where they have lost just one out of nine games this season, and 3/4 looks to be a cracking price.

Bohemians vs Stjarnan

You wait ages for one Republic of Ireland vs Iceland match-up to arrive, and along come two!

And Bohemians will head into the second leg of their clash with Stjarnan in buoyant mood, after a creditable 1-1 draw in Iceland where they were the better side for large portions of the game.

The hosts have won six on the spin at home and, with 6,000 fans roaring them on at the Aviva Stadium, they should eat up the Icelandic minnows, at a tasty 8/13.

The New Saints vs Glentoran

There will be an all-British affair at Park Hall when The New Saints of Wales face Glentoran of Northern Ireland.

The tie is wide open after the two sides drew 1-1 in the first leg at the Oval (not that one), so there's every reason to go for goals once again.

Especially when you look at both sides' form from the back end of the last campaign, where New Saints won 10 of their final 13 games and Glentoran lost just one of their last 15 matches.

And both teams to score is 17/20.

FK Sarajevo vs Milsami Orhei

Sarajevo were held to a surprise 0-0 draw by Moldovan minnows Milsami Orhei in the first leg, but we're expecting a different story in the Bosnian capital.

The visitors are winless in their last 11 European fixtures and have lost their last five away games in Europe by a combined aggregate of 12-1.

And with the hosts sure to be sharper after that all-important first competitive match, we're happy to take 2/11 for a Sarajevo stroll.
