Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Mura and Sturm go head to head at Mestni stadion Fazanerija in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Thursday’s program. Mura set up a meeting with Sturm by beating Zalgiris in the two-legged tie, but they will have a mountain to climb in the Europa League playoffs, first leg. The Slovenians have been playing some low-scoring games of late, and we are positive that they will adopt yet another defence-minded approach against Sturm.
The Austrian outfit, on the other hand, kicked off the new Bundesliga campaign in great manner, with the team beating both Wolfsberger (4-1) and Altach (3-1). Considering that Sturm have been impressive in front of goal of late, we do not believe that Mura are capable of keeping their third consecutive clean sheet in the Europa League qualifiers. All Mwepu, Ingolitsch, and Trummer are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team.
