Our football match prediction:
Sturm Graz do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the Europa League tie against Mladost. The Austrian club suffered a 2-1 loss to Mlada Boleslav in their last warm-up game and it has to be noted that they recorded only one win in last five friendly matches. Anyhow, they are seen as hot favourites on paper to win the two-legged tie against Mladost Podgorica, but coach Franco Foda must warn his men against complacency. The Montenegrins outplayed Gandzasar in round 1, but grabbing something from Thursday’s football match at Merkur Arena is easier said than done. Sturm Graz are superior to Mladost and given the quality of Montenegro football clubs, there is every chance the Austrians will roll over Dejan Vukicevic’s troops in the first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round. A man to watch in the home team will be Deni Alar, who scored 16 goals in the national championship last term.
