Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Elbasan Arena will host the Conference League qualifier between Laci and Anderlecht, the two teams who meet for the first time ever in European competitions. Laci set up a meeting with Anderlecht by beating Podgorica and Univ. Craiova, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the process. The Albanians are likely to adopt yet another defence-minded approach, but preventing Anderlecht attackers from scoring is easier said than done.
Laci coaching duo Cungu – Starova should have a full squad to choose from. The Jupiler League outfit, on the other hand, suffered a 3-1 loss to St. Gilloise in the season opener, with the team sharing the spoils with Eupen at the weekend. Since the Belgians have yet to find their best form at the start of the season, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Both Mykhalichenko and Cobbaut are likely to miss the game through injuries for the visiting team.
