Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Jagiellonia Bialystok and Gent face each other at Stadion Miejski in the first leg of the Europa League third qualifying round. Jagiellonia booked their place in the third round thanks to a thrilling 4-4 draw with Rio Ave and we predict that they are going to stick to their attacking style of play in Thursday’s football match. You should bear in mind, though, that the Polish side managed to keep five clean sheets in previous six home games in the Europa League. Gent, on the other hand, aim to kick-off their Europa League campaign in style and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. The two teams have never met before in European competitions, but everything suggests fans will see a high-scoring affair at Stadion Miejski.
Highlighted Team (AA Gent):
Gent are a Belgian football club that plays their home games at Ghelamco Arena. The venue has been the club’s home ground since 2013 and the capacity of the stadium is 20 000. De Buffalo’s participate in the Belgian Pro League and they clinched their first domestic trophy in the 2014/2015 season.
Gent finished the regular part of the season in second place in the standings, but they eventually climbed to the top position in the table in the play-off. The club won their third Belgian Cup trophy in 2010 and it has to be noted that they defeated Club Brugge in the Belgian Super Cup in 2015. Laurent Depoitre scored the winner for Gent three minutes before the final whistle.
A number of top-class players were part of the team in the past and the likes of Victor Fernandez, Johan Boskamp, Bob Peeters, Trond Sollied and Michel Preud’homme are some of notable footballers who played for Gent in the past.
