The Irish side is ahead in the scoreline after the first game. Sligo Rovers celebrated a 2-1 win in Wales and they are closer to winning the tie right now. Bala Town actually opened the score when Lassana Mendes beat the goalkeeper, but everything changes in the remaining minutes. Aidan Keena equalised for Sligo while Max Mata scored the winner.
Sligo Rovers finished the first leg Oswestry with a red card, though. Nando Pijnaker was sent off in the 79th minute which means he will not play in the second game.
Sligo Rovers’ manager John Russell warned his players not to get complacent after the win in the first match. It’s just one goal difference after all – it means almost nothing in soccer. Especially when the away goal rule is not active anymore.
At the same time Bala Town must focus on the attacking phase and look for goals in the second leg. It would be risky to put more numbers upfront but without this they would hardly get back in the tie. The manager Colin Caton could try a more aggressive approach. This means that strikers James Davies and Luke Wall could be in contention to start the next game.
That’s the best free soccer predictions for the Conference League qualification game between Sligo Rovers and Bala Town. The Irish team is one goal ahead, but it doesn’t mean the tie is over. The Welsh side still have chances to progress, but only if they find a way to score at least one or two goals.
