Breidablik are deep into their domestic season (they’re currently leading the league in Iceland), so you might have expected them to be sharper than Motherwell. But that wasn’t the case; both sides looked sluggish, but Ross Forbes’ goal earned a deserved victory for the SPL side in the first leg of this second round Europa League qualifier. Incidentally, it was Craig Brown’s first ever European match as a manager.
I expect Motherwell to score in the second leg, which would make them strong favourites to progress to the third round, where they would face Aalesund of Norway.
