Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Partizan failed to put an end to Crvena Zvezda’s dominance in the Serbian Super Liga last term, and, as a result, they will take part in the Europa League for yet another season. Savo Milosevic’s troops were producing fine displays in the group stages of the competition last term, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s qualifier against RFS of Latvia. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be talented Nigerian attacker Umar Sadiq, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
RFS, on the other hand, have been producing fine performances in the national championship, but seeing that the team’s main goal is to win the domestic trophy, the Latvians are likely to return home empty-handed from the trip to the beautiful city of Belgrade. In their last home game in the Europa League Partizan crushed Astana 4-1.
