Our prediction for this Europa League match:
A place in the Europa League second qualifying round will be at stake when TNS and Zilina face each other at Park Hall on Thursday evening. TNS have yet to kick off the new domestic campaign, and it has to be noted that they have not been in action since March. The Welsh outfit are on a four-game losing run in the Europa League, which sees them as big underdogs in the Park Hall showdown.
Zilina, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs at the start of the new Slovakian Fortuna Liga campaign. The Slovaks have been anything but impressive at the back of late, but given their attacking potential, we predict that Pavol Stano’s troops are going to eliminate TNS in the Europa League first qualifying round. The two clubs meet for the first time in European competitions.
