Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Atalanta and Sarajevo face each other at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore in the first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round. The Orobici were producing fine displays in the Europa League group stages last term, with the team beating the likes of Everton and Olympique Lyon. Atalanta finished the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign in seventh position in the standings, but they are still seen as hot favourites to win the tie against Sarajevo. The Orobici aim to get their job done in the first leg and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football match. Sarajevo, on the other hand, eliminated Banants in the first qualifying round, but they face an uphill task in the double-header against Atlanta. The Serie A side have been impressive at their MAPEI Stadium and we predict that they are going to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s football match.
