Everton vs Ruzomberok
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification – Third Round
Date: Thursday, 27th July 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
Ruzomberok found the way to come back from losing the first leg on the home court to Brann in the second round of the competition.
The Slovakian side claimed a 0-2 win in the rematch in Norway to set up the epic third round clash against Everton at Goodison Park.
We don’t even have to mention how huge the gulf in quality between the two sides is, but the question is Everton’s motivation for the second strongest competition on the continent.
Ronald Koeman has a brand new attacking lineuop featuring Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez.
It functioned well in the friendly with Twente (0-3 win), but the last test showed the team struggling to find the net as they only drew 1-1 with Genk.
Norbert Hrncar’s side dropped points in their opener in the domestic league as Ruzomberok lost 2-1 to Zlate Moravce on the road this weekend.
The team has previously conceded as many as three goals to second league outfit Karvina in a friendly match revealing the holes in the defensive line.
