Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Third position in Group G will be at stake when Servette and Sheriff Tiraspol square off against each other at Stade de Geneve in the Europa League round 4. Servette are desperate to register their first victory of the process and their performance in a 2-0 win over Zurich is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Thursday’s clash. All Baron, Lyng, Onguene, and Touati should miss out with injuries for the home team.
The Moldovans, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, but beating Servette in Switzerland is easier said than done. Les Grenats are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that Rene Weiler’s troops are going to prove their worth on the field. As for the away team, midfielder Joao Paulo has overcome his injury, while all Akanbi, Kyabou, Ouattara, and Vinicius Paiva remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Team (Sheriff Tiraspol):
Sheriff Tiraspol or simply Sheriff are the most successful Moldavian club. The club was founded in 1997 four years later (2000/2001) they won their first Moldovan National Division trophy. Over the years Sheriff Tiraspol have established themselves as the dominant force in the Moldovan football and you should that they won their 15th domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season.
Sheriff were level on points with Dacia Chisinau, but thanks to a better goal difference Roberto Bordin’s men won the national championship. The Moldovan champions wear yellow shirts and yellow shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kits is black. Sheriff Tiraspol host their opponents at Sheriff Stadium in Tiraspol and the venue can hold 12.746 people.
By beating the likes of Dinamo Tirana and Dinamo Zagreb the Moldovan club did well to make it to the Champions League play-off round in the 2010/2011 season, but Basel eventually proved to be a big catch for them.
