Our prediction for this Europa League match:
David faces Goliath at Stadion Poljud in the Europa League first qualifying round, return leg. Hajduk Split proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Gzira United at MFA Centenary Stadium, with the team moving one step closer to making it to round 2. The hosts can’t afford any complacency in the return leg and seeing that the Masters from the Sea have turned their Stadion Poljud into a real fortress, it is no wonder the Croats are considered hot favourites to win Thursday’s football match.
The Maltese side face an uphill task in the return leg and seeing that they need to adopt an attack-minded approach in the second leg, we are positive that the hosts will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. Ivan Dolcek, who came from the bench and found the net in the first leg, is likely to be recalled to the starting XI.
