Our football match prediction:
Crvena Zvezda were on the verge of beating Irtysh at Ortaliq Stadion in the first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round, but full back Andjelkovic committed a terrible error in the dying seconds of the match and, as a result, the Kazakhs scored a late winner from the penalty spot. Anyhow, the Serbian vice-champions dominated the match and they are regarded as hot favourites to make it to the third qualifying round. The two teams did play out the 1-1 draw in Pavlodar, but Crvena Zvezda are more of a team than Irtysh and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Thursday’s football match at their packed Stadion Rajko Mitic. The “Crveno-beli” are a real force to be reckoned with at home and, taking everything into account, there is every chance the visitors will return home empty-handed from the trip to Belgrade.
