Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over Shamrock Rovers, Gent will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Djurgarden in their third group game. Gent have been impressive at the back in the Conference League, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Thursday’s clash. All De Sart, Lemajic, Salah, Tissoudali, and Torunarigha are likely to miss the game with injuries for the home side.
The Swedish outfit, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Degerfors at the weekend. Djurgarden are not regarded as good travellers, and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Gent’s party at Ghelamco Arena. As for the visiting team, defender Elliot Kack continues to miss out with a long-term injury.
