Our football match prediction:
Sheriff are leading the chase for the domestic trophy ahead of Thursday’s Europa League game against Zlin and they aim to extend their unbeaten run in Group F. The Moldavian champions have been producing fine performances in all competitions this term and it is no surprise they are seen as favourites to win the football match against Zlin. Sheriff proved their worth in a 2-1 win at Lokomotiv Moscow and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Thursday evening. Zlin face a must-win situation against Roberto Bordin’s charges and there is every chance the hosts will find the net on the break. A man to watch in the home team will be Moldavian rising star Vitalie Damascan, who has been scoring goals for fun in the national championship this season. Taking everything into account, the hosts are likely to book their place in the Europa League knockout stages with a win over the Czech side.
