UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 18 August 2022
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Kosicka Futbalova arena.
Dnipro-1 had a decent run in the past Ukraine Premier League season. a ticket to the Europa League qualification battle was their reward for the impressive run that season.
They will face AEK Larnaca who have started their run in the Champions League qualification battle, getting knocked out to the semifinals of this one. AEK recorded a decent win against Partizan in the past round to advance it to the final against Dnipro-1.
The hosting allowance would have counted in a fixture like this. But, Dnipro-1 will have to play host to AEK Larnaca in a different turf where they wont have the highly motivating home crowd. This fixture is scheduled on Thursday at Kosicka Futbalova arena, a neutral venue with both having an equal spirits based on the turf advantage.
Dnipro-1 vs AEK Larnaca Head-to-head (h2h)
- This will only be the first head to head meeting between these two outfits.
Dnipro-1 vs AEK Larnaca Prediction
AEK Larnaca followed an inconsistent run throughout the qualification fixtures for the upcoming Champions League season. Competitive clashes like those wont tolerate outfits owning such forms.
Thus, they got down to the Europa League qualification run. The inconsistency is still affecting their recording. Their past round with Partizan ended up in a win but still the recording was tight.
A four game winless thread followed by AEK Larnaca while playing away from home will be counted here too. Their defensive line-up was the most displeasing factor in those fixtures.
Meanwhile, Dnipro-1 have not played a competitive fixture since the completion of the past Premier League season. They are currently following a winning form for seven games across all competitions.
The offensive line-up of Metallurg looked impressive in those games. They hve scored goals in a fashionable rate. We can expect the same trend here when they plays a competitive fixture after 8 months.
Considering all the above stats, we are of the view that Dnipro-1 might end up sealing a win against AEK Larnaca when they both meet on Thursday.
