Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Thursday’s Conference League game at Stadionul Ion Oblemenco pits together Universitatea and Vllaznia, the two teams who played out a 1-1 draw in Albania a week ago. Universitatea were more than unfortunate not to win the first leg, with the Albanian outfit scoring the equalizer from their only shot on target. The Romanians aim to get their job done in the return leg, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Vllaznia.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Andrei Ivan, who scored 14 goals in the national championship last term. The 25-year-old forward found the net in the 1-1 draw with Vllaznia as well. The visitors, on the other hand, were totally outplayed by Univeristatea in front of home fans, which is probably the main reason why we predict they will suffer relegation in the Conference League second qualifying round on Thursday.
