Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Slask Wroclaw and Hapoel Beer Sheva square off against each other at Stadion Miejski we Wroclawiu in the first leg of the Europa Conference League third qualifying round, first leg. Slask have been playing some high-scoring games in all competitions, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Despite being sent off at the weekend, both Tamas and Schwarz should keep their places in the starting XI.
Hapoel Beer Sheva, on the other hand, did well to crush Arda (6-0 on agg.) in the previous qualifying round. The Israelis are on a four-game winning run in all competitions, but beating Slask in Poland is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards in Wroclaw, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw.
