Dunajska Streda vs Cracovia
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: MOL Aréna (Dunajská Streda).
Streda had won six of their ten playoff games and climbed a spot higher above Zilina. At present, while their friendly ties are not going as per plan, the end to their league campaign had been spectacular. At home, the team has been an even more ferocious beast, with wins being doled out at a very high frequency.
Their last competitive tie saw them delivering a massive 5-0 win at home over Michalovce.
With the squad clearly better at home, a win in this first leg would be a top priority, as opponents Cracovia too has a similar habit of giving their best in front of the home crowd.
For now, they are on the backfoot, taking into account their stumbles away from home in their recent matches. Disregarding some positive results in friendlies, the group really has struggled to keep their heads level in away ties.
Also, their performance in the domestic league has not been that earth-shattering. They remained winless in 20 of their total 37 fixtures in the schedule, and the majority of these came on the road.

Dunajska Streda vs Cracovia Prediction
Streda was unbeaten in 10 of their last 12 competitive games and had won eight of them as well. Going on, they had found the back of the net twice or more in five of these last seven, and at home, possesses an enormously better record.
In front of the home crowd, they went unbeaten in 20 of their last 23 matches and scored three or more goals in their last five.
On the other hand, Cracovia lost their last two ties, and three of their last five too. Away from home, they lost three of their last five and was winless in six of their last nine too. As such, expect the hosts to avoid a loss at any cost.
Coming to goals, the visitors of the day failed to score in their last two match-ups, while their counterparts kept clean sheets in two of their last four home ties, and in four of their last seven too. With that in mind, count on the hosts to keep their nets clean at least for the first 45 minutes.
