Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Corbett Sports Stadium will host Thursday’s football match between Connah’s Quay and Kilmarnock, who take on each other in the Europa League first qualifying round, first leg. The Scottish side aim to get their job done in the first leg and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the first leg. The Killie will face Partizan in the second qualifying round should they happen to eliminate Connah’s Quay, but coach Angelo Alessio must warn his men against complacency.
The hosts have nothing to lose in Thursday’s clash, but despite the fact that they are likely to leave their hearts on the field, we do not believe that they are capable of shocking the Scottish side. It has been 18 years since Kilmarnock played their last Europa League game, meaning that the visitors are hungry for success.
