Our football match prediction:
Vardar impressed in the Europa League qualifiers, with the team eliminating star-studded Fenerbahce in the double-header, but they have not been as successful in the group stages of the competition. The Macedonian champions suffered a heavy 5-0 loss to Zenit in their opener and, to make things even worse for the fans, they were beaten by Rosenborg in Trondheim in their second group game (1-3). Vardar are desperate to get back on course, but they will have a big fish to fry in Thursday’s football match against Real Sociedad. The La Liga side rolled over Rosenborg in their opener (4-0), but Zenit proved to be a big catch for the Basques (1-3). Anyhow, seeing that Vardar have been struggling in the Europa League group stages, we predict that Real Sociedad, who sit in the top half of the La Liga standings, are going to pick up all three points from the Telekom Arena clash.
