Our prediction for this Europa League match:
A spot in the Europa League second qualifying round will be at stake when Olimpija Ljubljana and Vikingur Reykjavik face each other at Stadion Stozice on Thursday evening. Olimpija Ljubljana have yet to kick off the new Slovenian Prva Liga campaign, meaning that they are not in a good shape ahead of the visit of Vikingur. The Icelanders, on the other hand, have been anything but impressive in the national championship this season, with the team sitting in the middle of the standings.
Vikingur Reykjavik obviously struggle at the back, and despite the fact that Olimpija have not been in action since July 22, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. A man to watch in the home team will be Croatia international Ante Vukusic. The 29-year-old scored 26 goals in the Slovenian top flight last term, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
