Levski Sofia vs Hajduk Split
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Georgi Asparuhov (Sofia).
The Bulgarian side Levski will host Hajduk Split in the second leg after suffering a defeat in the previous match. They will be highly motivated to perform well here in order to win. While Hajduk Split will aim even for a draw here since they are in advantage.
Levski lost 1:0 but they didn’t play a bad game as they had their chances during the 90 minutes but failed to convert them. Now, they play at home, in front of their highly supportive fans and I think the tables will turn in their favor. At home, they were on of the best performing teams, losing just few games and they were against top teams like Ludogorets and CSKA Sofia. Still, they managed to score at least a goal. This is what I expect from them in this encounter.
Hajduk Split was considered a big favorite to win the 1st match but it didn’t go as the odds suggested as they barely achieved a minimal 1:0 win. Even that goal was by a penalty. They will start with an advantage here but I don’t think they will focus a lot on defence, since it is not a safe result to advance. Hajduk Split started the new season with a 3:1 win against Lokomotiv Zagreb and I guess they will bring that form here as well.
Levski Sofia vs Hajduk Split : Head to Head
The match between the two was a pretty balanced one and aggressive at the same time. It was only thanks to a lucky penalty at the 24′ which gave them the win. Also, it was a questionable penalty, so I’d say the teams levels are very close.
Levski Sofia vs Hajduk Split: Prediction
This time a more active game is expected from both side, especially Levski because of the home advantage. I even expect them to score the first goal of the match, which would push Hajduk Split to attack more and eventually score.
