Our prediction for this Europa League match:
After surviving a Serbian thriller, Steaua will be looking to move one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League group stages when they host Liberece at Arena Nationala. FCSB were hit by coronavirus in the previous round, but after a historical 6-6 draw, they eventually defeated TSC Backa Topola on penalties. Seeing that several first-team regulars remain in the recovery room, home win should not be considered this time out.
Liberec, on the other hand, kicked off their Europa League in style, with the team rolling over Riteriai 5-1 in the second qualifying round. The Czechs have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions of late, and they are likely to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s qualifier. Liberec participated in the Europa League group stages four years ago, and they are determined to repeat the success.
