FH Hafnarfjordur vs Maribor
Champions League Third qualifying round
Date: Wednesday, 2nd August 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Maribor have been dealt the easiest of the draws for the third qualifying round of Champions League and they are on a good way to secure at least the group phase of Europa League by going past Icelandic champions.
The hosts ere off to a slower start to the new season in Urvalsdeild, but a series of positive results (three wins in last four fixtures) sees the team led by Heimir Gudjonsson climb to the fourth position after 12 rounds of the competition.
FH-ingar reached the final of Icelandic Cup by beating Leiknir Keykjavik 1-0 at the weekend.
We must praise FH’s defensive line which seems to be much tougher to break down in comparison to the start of the season.
Maribor’ss goal would likely mean goodbye to Champions League ambitions for FH as we just don’t see the Icelandic team netting three or more goals past the Slovenians here.
Darko Milanic is way too experienced coach not to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and we can expect the Slovenians to close the tie by picking up the victory in the rematch as well.
