Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Sheriff will be looking to build on a historical 15-0 win over Sireti in the Moldovan Cup when they welcome Saburtalo at their Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena in the Champions League first qualifying round, first leg. The Moldovan champions suffered a shocking elimination to Shkendia in the Champions League qualifiers last season, meaning that they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign.
A man to watch in the home team will be Belarus international Jury Kendysh, who has already netted seven goals in the national championship so far this term. The Georgians, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form and seeing that they are on a three-game winless run ahead of the trip to Tiraspol, we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Wednesday’s football match. You should bear in mind that the hosts are eyeing their 11th consecutive win in all competitions.
Highlighted Player (Veaceslav Posmac):
Veaceslav Posmac is a Moldavian footballer who was born in Chisinau on November 7, 1990. The right-footed defender currently plays for Sheriff Tiraspol as a centre-back, but he started his senior career at Stantul Gheorghe.

Veaceslav Posmac scored his first ever goal for Moldova on January 15, 2014in a 2-1 loss to Norway. The Moldavian defender is very good in the air and despite the fact that his main position is centre-back he often scores goals after set-pieces. Veaceslav Posmac wears No. 90 on his shirt.
Highlighted Team (Sheriff Tiraspol):
Sheriff Tiraspol or simply Sheriff are the most successful Moldavian club. The club was founded in 1997 four years later (2000/2001) they won their first Moldovan National Division trophy. Over the years Sheriff Tiraspol have established themselves as the dominant force in the Moldovan football and you should that they won their 15th domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season.
Sheriff were level on points with Dacia Chisinau, but thanks to a better goal difference Roberto Bordin’s men won the national championship. The Moldovan champions wear yellow shirts and yellow shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kits is black. Sheriff Tiraspol host their opponents at Sheriff Stadium in Tiraspol and the venue can hold 12.746 people.
By beating the likes of Dinamo Tirana and Dinamo Zagreb the Moldovan club did well to make it to the Champions League play-off round in the 2010/2011 season, but Basel eventually proved to be a big catch for them.
