Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
After surviving Antalyaspor in their last league match, Fenerbahce will look to extend their winning run in all competitions to 11 games when they take on Nordsjaelland in their Conference League opener. The club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, with their decision already proving fruitful. Cengiz Under limped off with injury in the 3-2 triumph over Antalya, with Irfan Kahveci likely to step up, while Ismail Yuksek is back from the domestic ban.
The visitors, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Copenhagen in the Denmark Superliga derby at the weekend. As Nordsjaelland are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Finland international Oliver Antman should be the only absentee in the visiting team this time out.
