Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Alashkert and Debrecen face each other at Stadion Nairi in the first leg of the Europa Conference League second qualifying round. Alashkert aim to build on a thrilling 6-1 win over Arsenal Tivat and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be Brazil forward Agdon, who scored a hat-trick in Montenegro, while boss Vahe Gevorgyan has no fresh injury worries.
The Hungarians, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Al-Shabab in their last warm-up game and given Alashkert’s impressive display against Arsenal Tivat, home win should be considered. New signing Joao Oliveira is widely expected to make his Debrecen debut in Thursday’s clash as well as loanee Alexander Mojzis. It has to be noted that this will be the first meeting between the two sides in European competitions.
