Bala Town vs Tre Fiori
UEFA Europa League Preliminary Round
Date: Thursday, 5 July 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK
Venue: Corbett Sports Stadium (Y Rhyl).
Bala Town will host Tre Fiori in the second leg clash of the Europa League Preliminary round and search for the wat of catching up the opposition’s advantage.
Although they have been considered as the absolute favourites in this clash, Bala Town fell to a shocking 3-0 defeat against Sammarinese side. Everything was clear already in the first half and Tre Fiori managed to keep their lead ‘till the end of the match.
Including the last season, that was the seventh defat in a row for the Welsh side and Colin Caton needs to find the way out of this awful streak. The hosts are having a very hard task to progress to the next round of the qualifiers.
The victory in the first clash was the only one for Tre Fiori in their campaigns in the continental cups. Honestly, we don’t remember when any Sammarinese side celebrated a win in the European competitions as they are amateur teams.
It will be interesting to see how Alessandro Teodorani and the lads will cope with the expectations in this clash as they haven’t been in a similar position before. They have a serious advantage and the visitors need to be fully focused on putting a disciplined performance in order to make the biggest success in their history.

These two sides didn’t have the chance to face each other prior to their first leg clash in which Tre Fiori celebrated a convincing 3-0 victory.
Bala Town vs Tre Fiori: Prediction
Bala Town are still favourites in this tie although they have a mountain to climb. It is expected that they improve and book a win in front of their fans, but it is very questionable if it is going to be enough for the place in the first qualifying round.
The hosts have been involved in a lot of high scoring clashes lately and in their last five games the crowd was able to enjoy at least three goals. However, as their defence is leaking too much, it wouldn’t be surprising if the visitors manage to score, so we are expecting another efficient clash.
