Jeunesse Esch vs Tobol Kostanay
Europa League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019
Kick off at 16:55 UK / 17:55 CET
Venue: Stade de la Frontière (Esch-sur-Alzette).
The visitors failed to come out on top last week in their clash against FC Astana with the final scores reading 2-0 in favor of the latter at the end of the ninety minutes. The win brought their two-match winning streak to a halt, as well as squandered their chances of going on top of the table in the weekend.
The team failed to find the back of the net in all of their attempts at goal and will be looking to bounce back from their dismal result when they make the trip to Stade Le La Frontiere on Wednesday to take on the home side.
The hosts finished third in the league last season with forty-eight points to secure their berth in the round of sixteen. The team found the back of the net forty-six times in their previous campaign and conceded thirty goals in the process, which was the second least by any team in the table.
The game is certain to be a tight run of affairs, and we can expect an exciting ninety minutes in their maiden clash between the two sides.
The team that comes out on top, at the end of the two legs, will set up a quarterfinal meeting against Guimaraes.

The teams have not previously met each other on any occasion.
Jeunesse Esch vs Tobol Kostanay Prediction
The visitors are likely to walk away with the bragging rights and an away goal advantage when the two teams meet each other for the first time this week.
Although the away side did succumb to a 2-0 loss last week, it certainly does not define their recent run of form which has seen them register twelve wins in their last seventeen matches so far.
The squad have also scored twenty-six goals in the process and are the likely candidates to find the back of the net in the clash on Wednesday.
The hosts scored more goals on the road, than on home soil, last season and will have to create more goal scoring chances in the attacking third if they are to keep their hopes alive of competing in Europe this year.
However, the visitors’ current run of form which has seen them collect three clean sheets in their last five games away from home, is certain to dampen the home side’s efforts of walking away with the win.
We can expect a low scoring clash with the win swinging in favor of the away side at the end of the ninety minutes.
