Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Olimpija Ljubljana will go head-to-head against Ludogorets at the Stožice Stadium in the Champions League second qualifying round, return leg on Tuesday evening. Olimpija Ljubljana will be buoyed by their solid performance in the first leg and will look to capitalize on their home advantage to secure a favorable result. Since Ljubljana impressed in a 5-0 crushing of Rogaska at the weekend, home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
On the other hand, Ludogorets will be determined to showcase their quality and experience in European competitions. They will be eager to break the deadlock and secure a victory on the road to progress to the next round. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts who seem to be in a much better form that Ludogorets at the start of the season. As for the visitors, Matias Tissera should replace Kwadwo Duah in the starting XI as the Switzerland international limped off with injury in the first leg.
