Decic vs Dinamo Minsk
Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 14 July 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Pod Goricom.
Decic play host to Dinamo Minsk in a match of their second-leg of Europa Conference League Qualification. Having been tied in the first-leg, the Montenegrin side will have the home advantage as they battle it out with the Belarus side at Stadion Pod Goricom, this Thursday.
A week ago, they played out a 1-1 stalemate. Stefan Denkovic gave Decic a first half lead, only to see Syarhey Kislyak to equalise moments later. Due to a UEFA sanction, Belarusian clubs must play home matches behind closed doors and at neutral venues. Thus, both these legs of this clash are taking place in the Montenegrin capital.
The Belarusian side are looking to put an end to their eight-year European drought, having last played the Europa League in 2014. However, their recent form hasn’t been the most convincing. They have been scored against in all of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 9 goals overall.
On the other side, Decic, meanwhile, finished 3rd in the Montenegrin league last season but will be worried ahead of the new campaign, given their poor form on the road in pre-season friendlies. In contrast, they only made their debut in UEFA competition 12 months ago, falling at the first hurdle against Drita, losing both legs.

- They met just once in the reverse fixture where both these sides settled for a 1-1 stalemate.
Decic vs Dinamo Minsk Prediction
Due to a UEFA sanction, Belarusian clubs must play home matches behind closed doors and at neutral venues. On paper, Dinamo Minsk should cruise through this tie. They appeared in back to back Europa League group stages in 2014 and 2015, winning 6 of 11 qualifier ties subsequently.
Meanwhile, Decic lost their last home match by 1-2 against Podgorica. They even lost half of their home matches from their last 10 games.
If form is anything to go by, neither team has been at their best lately, so this game could go either way. But Dinamo Minsk come here on the back of a 3-game winning streak, scoring at least thrice on each.
By the looks of things, expect a victory for the visiting side this Thursday. Awaiting the winners are Hapoel Be’er Sheva in the Europa Conference League second qualifying round.
