European debutants Drita will have to overturn a 1-2 first leg defeat to make their stay longer in the competition.
The Kosovar took the lead in the first leg at Luxembourg, but Dudelange profited from some poor discipline from their opponents to score twice to turn the fixture in their favor.
Drita finished with a man less and four others on yellow card, while three Dudelange players got their name in referees book.
Dudelange have only been a club since 1991, that’s where the 91 in their name comes from but they have won 9 national league titles in the Luxembourg league. They will come face to face with Drita from Kosovo in this 2 leg match for a place in the 3rd qualifying round.
They have been made the slight odds on favourites at around 1.80 to win this game. Drita can be backed at 4.00 so we do have clear favourites here.

Drita vs Dudelange Prediction
As mentioned earlier, this is Drita’s first season in Europe and they made their entry into Champions League. After winning two preliminary games against clubs from Andorra and Gibraltar, they were blown away by Swedish giants Malmo over the two legs.
Dudelange is quite similar to Lincoln Red Imps and FC Santa Coloma, the teams Drita defeated on penalties in the Champions League preliminaries. So, the Kosovar know what to expect on Thursday.
Knowing that Dudelange lost every away game in their Europa League history, most of them on heavy margins, a home win is on the reckoning here.
