Cukaricki vs Banants
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadion na Banovom brdu (Belgrade).
Banants had a lackluster ending to their league campaign the last season. The team had to settle for five winless games in a row, which affected their chances to end up in the top two spots. Also, they could manage just 14 wins from their 32 games and conceded goals at a rate of more than one.
Their away record has been a cause of concern for fans, and with such a mighty foe on the other side, and that too with the home status, the players will be tested to their limits this Thursday.
Disregarding their two losses against Partizan, opponents Cukaricki have not tasted defeat in the last five months. At home, they have been even more ferocious, with them losing just twice in the last 12-month period.
One thing that stands out about them is the fact they have lost only against teams that ended up higher than them in the table (which is already a very limited club) in the last several months. With them enjoying the home advantage for this tie, their objective will surely be to comfortably win and hold on to a major advantage for the return leg.
