Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
After outplaying Petrocub in the second qualifying round, Sivasspor will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Dinamo Batumi on Thursday evening. The Turkish Super Lig outfit looked solid at the back in the double-header with Petrocub, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the Batumi Stadium clash as well.
Nigeria international Olarenwaju Kayode, who scored the winner against Petrocub, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. Dinamo Batumi, on the other hand, rolled over BATE Borisov 4-1 to set up a meeting with Sivasspor. The Georgians are brimming with confidence ahead of Thursday’s qualifier, but given the number of high-profile footballers in the Turkish team, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Sivasspor defender should have Brazilian attacker Flamarion at bay.
