FC FCSB vs Slovan Liberec
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Arena Nationala (Bucharest).
The Romanian league has started a little earlier into the last month, giving FC FCSB a head start in the middle after a tiring lockdown last season.
The host will play on the back of a 3-0 win at home against the likes of FC Arges in the last clash in schedule of Liga 1. The quarterfinal against TSC was filled with goals as the 4-4 entertainer needed penalties for FCSB to move forward in the tournament.
Liberec is flaunting their four-game unbeaten streak in their schedule. They faced Riteriai in the last EL fixture and took the bragging rights on the road with a 1-5 score on the board.
Besides, they will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against the likes of Karvina in the Czech Republic 1 Liga. With their decent form on the road, the host can expect trouble at the back in the encounter.

The teams haven’t met before in recent times.
FCSB vs Slovan Liberec Prediction
FC FCSB scored over 3 goals in both their EL qualifier clashes this season. However, these were against weaker teams in the mix, including Shirak and TSC Backa Topola. Slovan Liberec is not of a similar league as their 1 Liga is slightly competitive than the Romanian Liga 1.
The goals will not come in smoothly as the teams are meeting for the first time. Their attacks will take time to reach each other’s end, which is why a low-scoring target will be ideal for the game. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
Despite having the ground advantage, the visiting side seems to have more control of the game than the host. Hence, the away win in full-time will probably be another suitable option to yield decent returns from the encounter.
