Nomme Kalju vs Shkendija
Champions League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 9 July 2019
Kick off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Kadrioru Staadion (Tallinn).
The hosts are enjoying a stellar run of form at the moment, and have tasted defeat just twice in their eighteen games in the league so far. The squad have been impressing in their last five games on home soil as well, with their last fixture against Tulevik finishing 2-1 in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes.
Despite trailing by a goal from the 24th minute, the hosts staged a comeback through Liliu finding the equalizer in the first half and Aleksandr Volkov sealing the deal in the latter forty-five minutes.
Their foes for Tuesday, Shkendija, finished their league campaign in style as the table toppers with a resounding 15 point advantage over the runners up. Their last away game against Renovo, however, finished in disappointment with the scoreline reading 3-2 at the end of the ninety minutes. The team found their second goal with four minutes left on the clock but failed to capitalize on their momentum to grab an equalizer.
The hosts will have to avoid any mistakes at the back whatsoever if they are to thwart the visitors, who have a very strong attacking line up, from clinching an important away goal.
The team that progresses, at the end of the two legs, will book a quarterfinal clash with the winners of the fixture between Celtic and Sarajevo.
