Backa Topola vs FCSB
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 17 September 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Gradski Stadion, Senta.

Backa Topola TSC are a breath of fresh wind Serbian football needed. This team is mostly made of young players and usually their games end with high number of goals. They had their first European match in club’s history on 27th August, beating Petrocub from Moldavia 2-0 on the road. The upcoming opponent is going to be much harder to overcome though.

FCSB or more commonly known as Steaua were UEFA Champions League winners in late 80’s, but it’s been a while since club made any significant result on the European scene. Once again they failed to win the title in Romania and will have to look towards Europa League group stages to secure much-needed financial funds. Visitors are favorites to win the match at 1.83 odds.

Backa Topola vs FCSB Head-to-head

This is going to be the first head to head match between Backa Topola TSC and FCSB.

Backa Topola vs FCSB Prediction

Backa Topola have no troubles outplaying opponents in Serbia unless they are facing Red Star Belgrade or Partizan Belgrade. Seven out of their last eight matches across competitions ended either with BTTS or Over 2.5 FT goals. The most recent form is not looking promising though.

After abovementioned victory in Moldova, Backa Topola suffered two big losses to Red Star 0-5 FT and Radnicki Nis 1-3 FT. They are stuck in the bottom half of the table after winning only eight points from seven games. Was this team saving strength for this big match? We doubt so.

FCSB are also entering this clash with morale lower than usual after losing to Voluntari 1-2 FT. This team has been playing Europa League matches for eleven years straight though, which means experience is heavily on their side.

FCSB defeated Shirak in the opening match this season 3-0, demonstrating fine form. We feel confident picking away win in this match.

Backa Topola vs FCSB Bet Tips
