Connah’s Quay vs FK Sarajevo
Champions League 2020/21 (First qualifying round)
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
The Giants are the reigning champions of the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina. They have been one of the most consistent performers in the competition in the last few years, and they had lost a total of just three games all through the prior campaign.
They also come from a far better domestic league, compared to that of the Cymru Premier League – which effectively is the top flight of Wales. Understand that they even have semi-professional clubs taking part in this competition.
Moreover, the Nomads have also been away from football for so long, as the Cymru was wound up early in March itself. Since then they have not played even a friendly, and it would be a miracle if they even manage to make this match-up competitive.
By the looks of things, expect Sarajevo to progress to the next round with apparent ease.

- This is the first competitive match-up between the two squads.
Connah’s Quay vs Sarajevo: Prediction
The Nomads have not lined up for a game in the last six months, and even then they were on a two-game winless run. They also had lost their last appearance at home.
Meanwhile, their counterparts are on a ten-fixture unbeaten run, and they also remained so in 18 of their previous 20 overall games. And on the road, they have not lost a single fixture since September of 2019.
Moreover, the Giants come from a much more accomplished league, and are experienced in taking on much better teams, as well as are well-versed in managing high-pressure scenarios.
Furthermore, they have also scored two or more goals in every single one of their road trips in 2020, and have not conceded a single goal in such fixtures – except for one game.
As such, expect Connah’s Quay to post a win this Wednesday at the Cardiff City Stadium.
