Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Stade Constant Vanden Stock will host Thursday’s football game between Anderlecht and Spartak Trnava, the two teams who have little to play for in the last two group games. Anderlecht suffered a 2-0 loss to Fenerbahce in Istanbul and, as a result, they will not take part in the Europa League knockout stages. Spartak Trnava are still in the race for a place in the last 32, but they need to pick up all three points from Thursday’s clash if they are to keep their hopes alive. Seeing that the visitors want this win more than the hosts, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Spartak Trnava did well to beat Anderlecht in Slovakia earlier in the process, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Radoslav Latal’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Thomas Didillon):
Thomas Didillon joined Metz football academy at the age of 11 and he spent no less than six years at the club. The 193-cm-tall goalkeeper made his debut for the Metz first team on May 16, 2014 in a goalless draw with Stade Lavallois and he made 27 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Ligue 2 campaign.
Didillon managed to keep 13 clean sheets for the club during the season and, no doubt, he helped Metz secure promotion to the French top flight. The French shoot-stopper played 32 games for les Grenats in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign and he kept nine clean sheets, while conceding 64 goals in the process.
During the 2014/2015 season Thomas Didillon played for Belgium side RFC Seraing on loan and, speaking of his international career, the goalkeeper represented France U16, U18, U19, U20 and U21 teams in the past. Didillon was born in Seclin (France) on November 28, 1995 and his preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (FC Spartak Trnava):
Founded in May, 1923, Spartak Trnava are a Slovakian side that won the Czechoslovak First League on five occasions.
