Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Partizana when Cukaricki and Hammarby go head to head in the Europa Conference League third qualifying round, first leg. Cukaricki did well to beat Sumqayit in the second qualifying round, but Hammarby will surely pose a much bigger threat for the Serbs than their previous rivals. Talented attacker Djordje Jovanovic, who found the net in the 2-1 win over Metalac at the weekend, should be deployed up front as a lone-forward.
Head coach Pavle Delibasic is likely to stick to the 4-2-3-1 formation. Hammarby, on the other hand, booked their place in the Conference League third qualifying round by beating Maribor in the double-header. The Allsvenskan outfit aim to get their job done in the first leg, and seeing that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Magyar, Paulinho, and Sandberg are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
