Maribor-Wigan Athletic betting preview
Both Maribor and Wigan could get on the second spot with a win. However, that is not enough – Zulte-Waregem needs to fail against Rubin Kazan.
The situation in the group D looks very complicated with three teams fighting for the second place. However, all combinations could prove worthless if Rubin Kazan' looses the game with Zulte-Waregem. But I’m sure that Maribor and Wigan will be fully concentrated on their performances, meaning we’ll be awarded with an interesting clash.
Maribor are leaders in the Slovenian league, but that is rather a proof of the competition’s low quality, than Maribor’s superiority. Things are different in the Europa League, where they occupy the last spot with four points, which isn’t that bad and gives them remote hope for advancing to the next round. The match with Wigan will be played on their stadium, but that doesn’t seem like a huge advantage as they are winless on the Ljudski vrt in the Europa League.
Looks like Wigan will stay for another year in the English Championship. They are on the lower half of the table and their recent form suggest they could drop even lower. I guess the Europa League took its toll on Wigan. They have great players in their team, even good enough for the Premier League, but it looks like they can’t keep up with the schedule.
Maribor-Wigan Athletic Prediction:
The game with Maribor could be crucial for Wigan, especially if Zulte-Waregem don’t win. In that case, with three points from Maribor game, Wigan would get on the second spot (because of a better goal difference than Zulte). That is the main reason why I’m gonna suggest betting on the away win.
