Partizan vs Nordsjaelland Analysis for Prediction
It was all hard work, but Partizan will be happy with their effort resulted in a 2-1 win in Denmark.
The Serbians have a strong account of themselves when it comes to home games in European qualifiers and they come to Thursday’s second leg fixture on the back of an unbeaten run at home since November last year.
Nordsjaelland were third in last season’s Superliga, but their start to the current domestic campaign is underwhelming. They will be low on confidence in the trip to Belgrade and a stadium where visiting teams found it hard to score.

Partizan vs Nordsjaelland Preview
Nordsjaelland were known for their highly-attacking football style on Denmark over the last couple of years.
Even though they are still guided by the same coach Kasper Hjulmand, the team seems to have shifted more to a defensive-minded approach at the start of the new season.
It brought a decent success in Europa League where the Wild Tigers shipped only one goal in four games against Cliftonville and AIK.
The Danes were particularly impressive against the current Allsvenskan leaders in the previous round when they picked up two narrow clean sheet wins to set up the third qualifying round tie with Serbian Partizan.
Partizan enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last year when they managed to pass a challenging group which included Dynamo Kyiv and Young Boys.
They were stopped in the last 32 round of the competition last year, but it was still marked as a super successful run for the Serbian outfit.
Can they match such success this year and make it back-to-back group stage appearances in Europa League?
Partizan have a much greater European experience, they come into the tie as favourites despite far from their best shape at the start of the new season.
Zoran Mirkovic’s men took only four points from three opening games of the campaign in the domestic league which is way below their standards, particularly knowing that their fierce rivals Red Star Belgrade won each of three outings so far.
Scoring goals is definitely the main problem for Partizan at this stage as they only managed to net three in last five games even though they faced opponents much weaker than Nordsjaelland in the process.
