Hammarby vs Maribor
Europe – UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 22 July 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena.
Both Hammarby as well as Maribor are in great form, and are scoring goals at a great rate. With a spot in the Conference League at stake, expect a fierce encounter this Thursday at the Tele2 Arena, and plenty of goals as well.
Hammarby had finished eighth in the Swedish top flight the last season, and though they had impressed in offense, they had left concerns with their defensive performances. In fact, they had scored a total of 47 goals, while having conceded 47 in return as well.
As of now, they are on a great run – be it at home or on the road, and are determined to make an impact in the first leg itself. To be frank, they will try to finish off the tie this Thursday.
But it waits to be seen what Maribor will have to say about that. They had finished second in the Slovenian top flight, but were level on points with champions Mura. They missed out only due to an inferior h2h record, and thus an opportunity to take part in the CL.
They surely are frustrated, and will be going after a victory at the Tele2 Arena.
By the looks of things, expect goals to come from either side of the pitch.
