Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
After failing to shock Helsinki in the Champions League qualifiers, RFS will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Hibernians in the Conference League third qualifying round, first leg. RFS are in a two-horse title race with Valmiera, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to defend the domestic trophy. A man to watch in the home team will be Brazil international Emerson Santana, who has netted seven goals in the national championship to date.
Hibernians, on the other hand, aim to make amends for the Champions League loss to Levadia. The Maltese experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the double-header with Levadia, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. RFS defenders should have Hibernians right-back Ferdinando Apap at bay as he impressed in the Champions League tie with Levadia.
