Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
A place in the Europa Conference League second qualifying round will be at stake when Liepaja and Gjilani face each other at Daugavas stadions on Thursday. Gjilani won the first leg thanks to Albert Dabiqaj’s first-half goal, but it has to be noted that Liepaja failed to turn their dominance into the equalizing goal. Anyhow, we are positive that the Kosovars will adopt a defence-minded approach in the second leg as they are eager to defend their slim-lead.
The Latvians produce much better showings at home than on the travels, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the reverse fixture. Liepaja have already recorded five wins at home in the new domestic campaign, and we predict that they will overcome the one-goal deficit in the tie with Gjilani. All Soladio, Belakovic, and Villela are pushing for a start.
