Austria Wien (Austria) vs Hapoel Be’er Sheva (Israel) - Group C - September 8th, 2022

Group C within the Conference League is one that many would consider the group of death and we start off with a banger of a match between two evenly matched teams in Austria Wien and Hapoel Be’er Sheva.

Austria Wien is coming off a stellar 2021-2022 season in which they saw their ranking within the Austrian Domestic league skyrocket in terms of potential and popularity.

Their play was pleasing to many and led to many fascinating games with high-scoring totals.

Wien likes to play a high line and leave it all out on the pitch whenever they play so there’s a good chance, they will be doing the same this time around as well.

Hapoel Be’er Sheva from Israel have been on a dazzling run of form lately and they are looking to continue to do the same against Wien this Thursday.

Having an unbeaten run over the past few months domestically, Beer Sheva now focus their attention on the Conference League, something that can potentially boost their popularity on the global scale as well.

The Israeli side has a ton of talent, and many people may not know their craft. Be’er Sheva has a great chance to cause an upset in leg one and we wouldn’t be surprised one bit if it happened.

Betting Prediction - Be’Er Sheva DNB and +.5 asian handicap in a tight leg one versus Wien!

Molde FK (Norway) vs KAA Gent (Belgium) - Group F - September 8th, 2022

Molde is currently Norway’s top team and feel like their time in the Conference League will be short.

The top goal scorers in their nation, Molde has a ton of fire power and have been known to be Europa and Champions League regulars for the past decade or so.

The sheer talent that Molde poss esses should be enough for them to make a deep run in the Conference League and it will start with the Belgians, KAA Gent this Thursday.

Look for both teams to mainly play attacker in this match, as their abilities on that end of the pitch are far superior to their defensive prowess.

Molde at home will be a tough cookie to crack but there will surely be chances for both clubs to make a statement in this game.

Betting Prediction - Over on the asian total of 3 goals and a cheeky Molde over team total as well!
