Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Thursday’s football game at Academy Stadium pits together Alashkert and Renova, the two teams who kicked off their respective domestic campaigns two weeks ago. Alashkert are eyeing their seventh Europa League win, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. A man to keep an eye on in the Armenian team will be Brazilian attacker Perdigao, who joined the club in the summer transfer window. Renova, on the other hand, booked their place in the Europa League qualifiers for the first time since the 2015/16 season.
The North Macedonia side have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, and seeing that Alashkert played out a goalless draw with Ararat-Armenia in their last home match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. You should bear in mind that the two teams have never met before in the Europa League.
