Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Grbavica when Zeljeznicar and Dinamo Minsk square off against each other in the round 1 derby. Zeljeznicar were producing fine displays in pre-season, with the team defeating both Arsenal Tivat and Kapfenberg, while sharing the spoils with Tuzla City and they must be high on spirits ahead of Thursday’s encounter. The opposition back-line should have left winger Santos at bay.
The Belarusians, on the other hand, are in the middle of the season, with the team occupying second place in the standings ahead of the trip to Sarajevo. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on draw as Zeljeznicar are tough to beat at home. A man to watch in the away side will be experienced forward Vladimir Khvaschinskiy, who is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders. In their last meeting in European competitions, back in 1985, the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.
