Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Kapital Bank Arena will host Thursday’s Europa League qualifier between Sumqayit and Shkendija. Sumqayit returned to action at the weekend, but they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Shkendija. The Azeri are eager to impress on their Europa League debut, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for them. Shkendija have gained experience by participating in both Champions League and Europa League in recent years.
The North Macedonia outfit are eyeing their tenth Europa League win, but beating Sumqayit at Kapital Bank Arena is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in three of Shkendija’s last five games in the Europa League.
