Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Steaua play host to Dunajska Streda in the second leg of the Conference League third qualifying round. The Romanians won the first leg thanks to Joonas Tamm’s goal, and they are now on a quest to defend their slim lead on home soil. Midfielder Ovidiu Popescu limped off with injury in a 1-1 draw with Mioveni at the weekend, with Denis Harut being ready to step up.
Anyhow, the Romanians are seen as favourites to win the return leg. Dunajska Streda, on the other hand, had no more than six goal attempts in the first leg, which is probably the main reason why away win should not be considered. To make things even worse for the Slovaks, defender Dominik Kruzilak misses Thursday’s clash through suspension as he was sent off in the 1-0 loss to Steaua a week ago.
