Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Struggling Serbian vice-champions Partizan will look to give fans some cheer when they take on AEK Larnaca in the Europa League third qualifying round, return leg. Partizan suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Novi Pazar at the weekend, and, as a result, head coach Ilija Stolica is on the verge of losing his job. Since important midfielder Sasa Zdjelar has left the club in the summer transfer window, away win should not be considered.
AEK Larnaca, on the other hand, have yet to kick off the new domestic campaign. The Cypriotes are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Partizan’s dressing room. A man to watch in the home team will be North Macedonia international Ivan Trichkovski, who scored 15 goals in the national championship last term.
