Liepaja vs Gjilani
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 14 July 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Daugavas stadions.
Gjilani have taken a comprehensive step towards the next step in the Europa Conference League playoffs with a 1-0 win at their home in the first leg of the tie. While their job is not done yet, they certainly will approach this return fixture with confidence and momentum.
They will try to protect this lead and since they have the luxury to concentrate more on defense, this will put even more pressure on their counterparts.
Going on, it needs to be mentioned that the hosts of the daily Liepaja have been struggling with their defense for quite some time now.
They seldom have kept clean sheets lately and even at home they have not been able to deliver any kind of a performance in the past few weeks that would instil belief in the team.
They will have to go after goals right from the get-go and Gjilani will be happy to take advantage of this desperation. As such, expect another win for them this Thursday.

Liepaja vs Gjilani Prediction & Analysis
Liepaja were winless in 6 of their past 7 overall fixtures and 4 of these were losses as well. Do also note that they have won just twice at home in the past 3 months and they have let in 2 or more goals in 2 of their previous 4 appearances here.
On the other hand, Gjilani were unbeaten in 15 of their past 21 overall matches and they had won 2 of their past 3 road trips. Do also note that they had scored 4 or more goals in 2 of their previous 3 away fixtures.
Taking into account these observations, expect a victory for Gjilani. However, considering this is the second leg of a crucial Conference League playoffs, expect either team to give their absolute best this Thursday. And likely, chances are high for goals to come from either end of the pitch.
