Our football match prediction:
Despite having 22 goal attempts (11 on target) in the first leg of the Champions League qualifying tie against TNS, Rijeka scored only two goals in the victory over the Welsh outfit (2-0). The Croatian champions failed to turn their dominance into more goals, but thanks to the 2-0 victory over TNS they moved one step closer to booking their place in the third qualifying round for the elite competition. Rijeka are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and we predict that Matjaz Kek are going to record yet another victory over TNS. The Welsh side face an uphill task in the return leg and considering that they had no more than one goal attempt in the 2-0 loss to Rijeka in Croatia, there is every chance the visitors will emerge triumphant in Tuesday’s football match. Gavranovic is widely expected to lead the line for the Croats against TNS.
