UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 19 July 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Sportni Park, Domzale.
Domzale got off to a flying start seven days ago at Stadion Pecara when Lovro Bizjak and Dario Melnjak bagged quick goals within the quarter of an hour to put the Slovenian hopefuls two goals ahead in the away fixture.
Nevertheless, Siroki Brijeg managed to bring things back on level terms after the break when Tomislav Turcin and Stipo Marjovic notched important goals to leave the Bosnian side in the tie ahead of the rematch at Sportni Park.
Simon Rozman’s men remain heavy favourites to go through based on both result and the fact they enjoyed fabulous campaigns in last two summers.
They were stopped by a Premier League side West ham United in the third qualifying round two years ago, going a step further in the following term when latter finalists Olympique Marseille eliminated them in the play-off round.
Domzale vs Siroki Brijeg: Head-to-head
The two sides did not have the chance to take on each other in the past as the clash in Siroki Brijeg represented their first ever head to head meeting.
As mentioned above, it was a thrilling encounter which saw teams dominate a half each as it ended in a 2-2 draw.
Domzale vs Siroki Brijeg: Prediction
Siroki Brijeg’s squad saw plenty of changes in between two seasons. Team is without super influential likes of Luka Menalo (12 goals, 5 assists in the previous term of the Bosnian Premijer Liga) and Iago Santos Wagner (retired).
Important midfielder Dino Coric skipped the first leg and will likely be out for the rematch (injury), meaning it’s really hard to expect much from the Bosnian outfit against such a strong opposition.
Domzale have been better and better with each new year lately. They came third in the previous term of Slovenian 1. SNL, being seven points shy of champions Olimpija.
Based on their impressive European campaigns in past two seasons, we have to see them as massive favourites to grab the victory here as we suggest the home win with higher stakes at the odds of 1.65.
We expect another open game because Domzale fancy attacking football which is why the alternative bet would be Over 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 2.15.
