Gent vs Viitorul Constanta
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 25 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30
Venue: Ghelamco Arena (Gent).
The hosts were unbeaten in their last three games and subsequently finished fifth in the table in their previous season. They made it all the way to the finals of the Belgium Cup as well but failed to come out on top against KV Mechelen, and were handed a 2-1 defeat at the end of the ninety minutes.
The visitors, on the other hand, tasted success in the finals of the Romania Super Cup against CFR Cluj, with Artean scoring the only goal of the tie. The squad have also begun their league campaign on a positive note with back to back wins in their last two fixtures.
However, the trip to Gent will not be a piece of cake for them by any means, with the Belgian outfit certain to stand in their way of walking away with an easy win.

Gent vs Viitorul Constanta Prediction
The hosts are the favorites to come out on top when the two teams lock horns with each other on Thursday.
The home team registered just one win in their last five home games in the league and failed to taste success in the finals of the Belgium Cup as well.
Although the visitors have been on a much better run of form in comparison, it has to be said that the hosts are battling it out every week in a much tougher league.
The home team also posted a very impressive result the last time the two teams met at this venue and so an outcome along the same lines is likely to be the case when they clash this week.
Considering that the visitors have scored six goals in their last two games, expect nothing short of a high scoring tie, with both teams likely to find the back of the net.
