Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
All eyes will be on Fischt Olympic Stadium when Sochi and Partizan take on each other in the Europa Conference League third qualifying round, first leg. Partizan faced no difficulties in the double-header against Dunajska Streda, but the Serbian vice-champions will have a much bigger fish to fry in Thursday’s football game. Veteran goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic left the club in the summer transfer window, while important midfielder Danilo Pantic should be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in a 4-0 league win over Vozdovac.
Sochi, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Partizan by beating Keshla in the two-legged tie. Considering that the Russians are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. A man to watch in the home team will be new signing Dmitri Vorobjev, who is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders.
