Hajduk Split vs Everton: Toffees can do enough to progress

Odds: Hajduk Split 11/4, Draw 12/5, Everton 91/100

Kick Off: 2000, 24/08/2017

Stadium: Stadion Poljud

Everton look in good shape to wrap up a place in the Europa League group stage as they take a 2-0 lead to Croatia for the second leg of their play-off tie with Hajduk Split.

The hosts have won five straight home games in this competition, though, so the Toffees may be content to grind out a draw here that would be good enough to see them ease through.

We’re kicking off our Hajduk Split vs Everton betting predictions by taking 12/5 for a stalemate at Stadion Poljud.

A Look At Hajduk Split’s Betting Odds

Hajduk Split were a long way behind the top two when third in the Croatian HNL last term and struggled to match Everton on Merseyside last week, having just 35 per cent of possession.

They did, however, pose a threat when able to push forward, getting six of 11 shots on target and forcing Jordan Pickford to produce three useful saves.

The £30million keeper did particularly well to get down low and deny Franck Ohandza what could have been a crucial away goal.

With more possession expected on home turf, the Toffees’ defence may be breached for the first time in four Europa League games and we’re on a score draw at 15/4 in our Hajduk Split vs Everton betting tips.

A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds

Everton’s goals did not come from the likeliest of sources in the first encounter, with Michael Keane and Idrissa Gueye hitting the back of the net.

However, Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen, Ademola Lookman and Kevin Mirallas all contributed to a lively attacking display which should really have resulted in a more convincing advantage.

The £45million capture of Gylfi Sigurdsson gives Ronald Koeman even more options up front, although the Dutchman may shuffle his pack here in between tough Premier League fixtures at Manchester City and Chelsea.

An away goal would leave their opponents with a mountain to climb, though, so we like 11/2 for 1-1 from the Hajduk Split vs Everton odds.
