Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Stadion MSK Zilina will host Thursday’s football game between Zilina and Jablonec. The Slovaks will have a mountain to climb in the return leg as they need to overcome a four-goal deficit in front of home fans. Anyhow, the hope dies last, and we are positive that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field. Talented attacker David Duris is pushing for a start after finding the net in a 3-0 win over Senica at the weekend.
Jablonec, on the other hand, got their job done in the first leg, and, as a result, they are likely to slow down the tempo this time out. Since Zilina’s pride will be at stake on Thursday evening, home win should be considered, but we predict that Jablonec will book their place in the Conference League group stages. Petr Rada should have a full squad to choose from.
