Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Petrocub and Sivasspor take on each other at Stadionul Zimbru in the first leg of the Europa Conference League second qualifying round. The Moldovans did well to eliminate Sileks of North Macedonia in round 1, but Sivasspor is likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. The Platica brothers should continue to lead the line for the hosts. The Turks, on the other hand, did well to secure a top-five finish in the Super Lig last term, and, as a result, they qualified for the new UEFA competition.
Sivasspor aim to kick off their Conference League campaign in style, and seeing that head coach Riza Calimbay has a number of high-profile players to choose from, including Mali international Mustapha Yatabare, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Sivasspor participated in the Europa League last term, with the team recording two wins in the group stages.
