For the 1st match in the play-offs round of the UEFA Europe League Qualification, Skenderbeu is leaving for Zagreb to meet Dinamo. Dinamo Zagreb haven’t lost any of their last 7 matches, and are sure hoping to continue the streak.
As a privileged team, they started their competition for the Europe League in the 3rd Qualifying round. The 2 – 1 win at home against Odd was followed by a 0 – 0 draw away, and now they are to take their final exam in the upcoming match against Skenderbeu. Fernandes and Hodzic were the two scorers. They are also their top scorers when it comes to the national league
After 5 matches in the national league, Dinamo are first ranked with 4 wins and 1 draw. Their shape seems to be great. They play very well as hosts; ¾ of their total number of goals has been scored at home. They have never failed to score. Also, they have managed to keep clean sheets three times.
Their most recent match was played at home against Mlada Boleslav. Skenderbeu lost 2 – 1 in the first match against Mlada, as a visiting team, but they have managed to return the same favour. The scenario-in-a-mirror happened, and now at home, Skenderbeu won 2 – 1. Due to the penalties, Skenderbeu still has the chance for survival in the UEFA Europe League. Overall, their only win away so far has happened in the first Qualifying round. But still, they have always scored as guests. What’s more, their average number of goals scored per game is higher when they are a visiting team – it’s above 2.
Their top scorer is Latifi with 3 goals.
