Rheindorf Altach vs Gent
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 3rd August 2017
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Stadion Tivoli NEU (Innsbruck).
This is another Europa League fixture evenly poised after the first leg finished in a 1-1 stalemate.
Louis Ngwat-Mahop put Altach in front with 5 minutes from kick-off in the away leg at the Ghelamco Arena. The hosts earned the equalizer through Kalifa Coulibaly with 15 minutes left for the final whistle.
Both teams are coming on the back of disappointing defeats in the domestic league fixture on the weekend. Altach fell to a humiliating 4-1 loss away at Admira while Gent lost 2-3 in the five-goal thriller away at St. Truiden.
The biggest loss for Altach is the absense of Ngwat-Mahop through injury, who scored two goals in the competition, including their lone goal in the first leg clash at Gent. Now their hopes rely on the the form of Stefan Nutz, who scored 3 goals from five qualification matches.
Altach drew both their home games in the previous two qualifying rounds.

Both teams have plenty of holes to fix in their defensive department. This was even evident in the first leg of the corresponding tie and is a surprise that it turned around with few goals.
We are expected to see a wide open game in the second leg, with both teams going into this game with equal chance of qualifying for the play-offs.
