Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Stadion Grbavica will host Thursday’s football game between Velez Mostar and Elfsborg. The Bosnian outfit did well to hold the Swedes to a 1-1 draw, with the team missing a couple of goal-scoring opportunities to even seal the victory. Even though the return leg will be played on the neutral location, home win should be considered as Velez have been producing excellent displays at the start of the season.
First-choice goalkeeper Slavisa Bogdanovic is out of contention through suspension. Elfsborg, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 league win over Degerfors. The Allsvenskan outfit proved their worth in their last league fixture, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Europa Conference League qualifier. Rasmus Alm returns from a domestic ban, while Alexander Bernhardsson is likely to miss the game through injury.
