The Slovenian club are unbeaten at home in 6 Europa League qualifiers and beaten strong teams like Gabala and Aberdeen during the period.

Chikhura have a humble history in Europe, but they have the reputation of playing tight game against stronger opposition. The goal-less draw in the first leg is a typical example.

We may not expect a lot of goals here, even when Maribor is much stronger than their opponents from Georgia.

Maribor vs Chikhura Head-to-head

The teams met for the first time in a competitive game last week and it wasn’t a fest for spectators with the game ending goal-less.

Maribor vs Chikhura Match Preview

This isn’t the same Maribor team in terms of strength and quality that have qualified for the major competitions and been in the group stages. But the fact that the team have been so strong history wise will be ripple down this current set of players.

There is a need to beat teams like Chikhura and advance to the next round of the qualifying stages and Maribor just have more experience.

Maribor will attempt to try and do what they do best and that is control the pace of the game. If Chikhura have not done their homework this could be a long game for them. The hosts are experts in drawing lesser opposition teams in and then hitting on the counter.
