Levadia Tallinn vs Cork City
Europa League qualifier
Date: Thursday, 29th June 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Parnu Rannastaadion.
Cork City will start their European adventure with the visit to Parnu for the first round of Europa League qualifications clash with Levadia.
Both sides will come into the game in a string competitive form as they are midway through the season in their domestic league, unlike the case is with most other European countries.
The manager Igor Prins can be happy with the form his team has been showing over the last couple of weeks.
Estonian runners-up from last term have been enjoying a strong kick off to the new Meistriliiga campaign where they took 13 wins and played four draws in 17 fixtures.
Levadia are especially dangerous on the home ground where they clinched five straight comprehensive wins ahead of the meeting with Cork.
The visitors are completely dominating the Irish football in the new season. Cork City are 15 points clear at the top of the Premier Division standings at the moment and they even have a game in hand on their arch-rivals and the defending champions Dundalk.
Sean Maguire has been the most lethal weapon in the final third for John Caulfield having bagged as many as 18 goals so far in the season and he is going to be the main threat for Levadia’s goal on Thursday.
Levadia Tallinn vs Cork City: Head to head
This will be the first ever head to head meeting between the two sides.
Levadia Tallinn vs Cork City: Prediction
It will be very interesting to see if Cork City can bring the impressive run from their domestic league to the European competition.
The Rebel Army will, however, have to be cautious since the Estonians are everything but a naive team. Levadia saw off Slavia Prague 3-1 in the second qualifying round last year on the home pitch (lost the rematch 2-0 and suffered elimination).
The best of the betting options would certainly be chasing both teams to score since they have both been quite impressive in the final third so far in the season.
