Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Kukesi face an uphill task in Thursday’s football game against Debrecen as they need to overcome a three-goal deficit in the Europa League qualifying tie against the Hungarian outfit. The Albanians produced a fine display in the first half of the Nagyerdei Stadion clash, but the Hungarians eventually scored three goals in the second half and moved one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League round 2.
Kukesi have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Debrecen, but recording a big win over what is a much better team, is easier said than done. The visitors are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the return leg and seeing that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Albania, the Hungarians are likely to book their place in the second qualifying round without any difficulties.
