The Barry Town vs. Cliftonville match will be played on Thursday, June 27, at the Jenner Park, Barry. This is the first leg of Europa League Preliminary qualifying round. Barry Town is Wales' representative, while Cliftonville is a team from the Northern Ireland.


  • Barry Town is in a terrible form currently. They failed to win in the last five matches in all competitions. They recorded three defeats in a row and conceded 11 goals in these three matches.
  • Cliftonville is in a better form than Barry, although they are not playing great either. They recorded two wins and three defeats in the last five matches. Also, in three out of their last five matches, we saw over 2.5 goals.


Of course, this match will be the first meeting of these two teams.


Both teams certainly have a chance to eliminate their opponent, but Barry is probably a slight favorite, since they are hosts in the upcoming match. Keyne McLaggon is the biggest threat to Cliftonville's goal, but some of his teammates will have to play better than usual in order to allow him the space to score. Barry is currently 3rd in Welsh League but it seems they will stay there. TNS is 18 points ahead on the first place, while Caernarfon is 10 points below them.

It is interesting that Cliftoville played against the second placed team on Welsh Premier League only a few days ago. Since they were defeated by 1:0, we can expect an exciting clash against Barry. Striker McMenamin is probably the biggest threat to the opponent's defense since he scored three goals in the last three matches.

It is hard to predict the winner of the upcoming game. We believe that we will see under 2.5 goals.
