Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 28 July 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena.

Djurgarden have been going through an  absolutely brilliant streak for quite some time now and are finding the back of the net at frightening numbers. They are expected to have the upper hand this Thursday in front of their home crowd, against the inconsistent and struggling Rijeka.

Djurgarden are from the prestigious Swedish top flight and had missed out on the title the last season by just 2 points. Only one other team had conceded fewer goals than them, and it also needs to be mentioned that they have been on a superb stretch at home for the past several months.

Going on they had also won the first leg of this ongoing tie and now they appear for the second leg at their home.

Meanwhile, most of the recent fixtures of Rijeka had finished in losses and they are letting goals in huge numbers.

They have also been going through a rather worrying streak of results on the road for the past several weeks they had missed out on the title the last season in Croatia by a margin of 14 points.

It also needs to be mentioned that only the bottom-most 4 teams in their league table had let in more goals than them through the course of the previous league campaign.

By the looks of things, expect a victory for Djurgarden this Thursday in front of their home crowd.
