It’s not likely to happen for them this season. Now their record in Europa League qualifiers stands at W1 D1 L13 and overall their European record is W2 D1 L20. Don’t expect too much from them although they did get on the scoresheet at Easter Road and both teams to score out in Runavik is at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 15th, 2018 at 10:58 p.m.).
Hibernian News and Form
A good job done by Hibs then who brushed aside their opponents easily at Easter Road. They had put the first goal on the board after three minutes and the star of the goalscoring show that they produced was Swiss striker Florian Kamberi who netted a hattrick. It was all too easy for Hibs and would have been without the red card that Runavik picked up. It may just be worth looking over 2.5 goals for the second leg at 4/7* (Betting Odds were taken from July 15th, 2018 at 10:58 p.m.) especially as Hibs carved them open easily enough in that first leg. Of course, the Scottish side doesn’t really have to do anything but coast through this second leg and there’s no reason for them to be at full strength for 90 minutes.
This is a total mismatch and Hibs could have added more to their tally as they didn’t look to sit back at all. The poor quality of their opponents made it even easier. It should be nothing but simple now to close this out and they could run up more goals if they really wanted to. This is the fourth Europea League qualification campaign for Hibs, last season they were knocked immediately after entering the second qualifying round Brondy. They have never been past the third round. That first leg win was just their second victory in the Europa League qualifiers (W2 D0 L5).
