Football fans in Kosovska Mitrovica will have the chance to enjoy a huge evening of football on Tuesday when Kosovar champions Drita will play host to Swedish giants Malmo FF in the first leg of the second qualifying round tie.
The hosts had to play the first-round fixtures against the likes of FC Santa Coloma and Lincoln Red Imps to earn the right to feature this stage of the competition for the first time in their history. Drita clinched wins both times after extra-time (0-2 vs Santa Coloma and 1-4 vs Lincoln).
Malmo will head into this looking to back up the thrilling restart to the Allsvenskan campaign after a month-long summer break. The Sky Blues struggled a lot with their form at the start of the new Allsvenskan season, but the managerial change caused a positive impact as Uwe Rosler’s men destroyed Sirius 0-4 on the road at the weekend to announce a strong campaign after the break.

Drita vs Malmo FF: Prediction
The gulf in quality between the two teams is just massive and we would be very surprised to see anything else but a confident victory for the visitors.
Markus Rosenberg showed a strong form when he bagged a brace to give Malmo a two-goal cushion in the mentioned tie with Sirius on Saturday. The Swedish talisman will no doubts have plenty of room to create in the final third past the much weaker opposition here.
Malmo should be in control from the very first minute and we’ll back the Swedes to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at quite attractive 2.00 odds as the main betting option. You can alternatively back either Malmo FF to win by two or more goals difference at 1.91 or Markus Rosenberg to score anytime at 1.80.
