Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Thursday’s Conference League game at Tele2 Arena pits together Djurgarden and Sepsi Sf. Gheorghe, the two teams who are eager to make it to the playoffs. Djurgarden, though, are seen as favourites to do so as they defeated Sepsi 3-1 in Romania a week ago. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the reverse fixture, but Elliot Kack remains in the recovery room.
The Romanians, on the other hand, need a big win in Sweden if they are to advance to the last qualifying round, but beating Djurgarden at Tele2 Arena is easier said than done. Since Sepsi are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the second leg, we predict that Djurgarden will seal the victory on the break. Cristiano Bergodi has no fresh selection problems ahead of the trip to Stockholm.
