Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Osijek will try to claim a major scalp in the Conference League third qualifying round when they face Adana Demirspor at their Opus Arena on Thursday. Osijek need to overcome a four-goal deficit in front of home fans and we are positive that they will go all-out attack this time out. Since “the Whites” looked sharp in front up front in a thrilling 4-4 draw with Istra, we are positive that they are going to find the net in the Conference League clash. Ivan Folic limped off with injury at the weekend, with Darko Nejasmic likely to step up.
Meanwhile, the Turks are practically in the final qualifying round, but they can’t afford any complacency in the second leg. Anyhow, given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Croatia.
