Both teams started their journey for Europe this season from the Champions League qualifying first round.

Ljubljana were handed an early exit after Qarabag squeezed a 1-0 win. The Slovenians bagged comfortable wins over Northern Irish side Crusaders (6-2) and Finnish champions HJK (7-1) to reach this far.

On the other hand, Spartak Trnava had a fairy tale run in the Champions League qualifiers. They defeated Zrinjski Mostar and Legia Warsaw before falling to Red Star Belgrade.

The Slovakians did manage to impress over the three round of double legged ties with their disciplined approach. It will be worth to note that they gave enough trouble to Red Star, who only scraped the win after extending the game to the extra time.

Thursday mark the first ever head-to-head matchup between Olimpija Ljubljana and Spartak Trnava

Olimpija Ljubljana vs Spartak Trnava Prediction

This is a new territory for both teams and they come with a huge baggage of expectation.

Olimpija Ljubljana impressed against two minor teams in the competitions and have scored a 13 goals in the process which will boost their confidence.

Spartak Trnava proved that they are a tough team to beat both at home and away and they will be still thinking how they lost against Red Star. Challenge for head-coach Radoslav Látal is to regroup his team after the heartbreak and make sure they end up with European football this season.

From my personal perspective, I am impressed by Trnava went on with their business this term. And I am quite sure that Ljubljana are a not that kind of team who enjoys playing against well-organized defensive units.
