Olimpija Ljubljana vs RFS
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Stožice (Ljubljana).
Ljubljana had blasted away all of their opposition in the league race, except Maribor, who were really on another level. As such, the former had finished second in the table, with some admirable stats.
The team has set sights on a deep run into the Europa, and if their form is taken into consideration, we can assume that the players are dead-serious about their continental aim.
Especially at home, the squad has been delivering awe-inspiring performances one after the other, and in fact, they have lost just once in the last eleven-month period.
Things look positive for them considering the form of their opponents, RFS. In spite of their second spot in the domestic league, the Latvians are struggling to script wins. On the road, their level hits an even lower one, as they are currently going through a winless run.
The level of opposition they face on a daily level also puts them at a disadvantage. In comparison to their counterparts for Thursday, the Latvian squad is regularly pitted against teams that are unable to maintain at least a positive goal difference. In fact, the third-best GD in the competition is just +1.

Olimpija Ljubljana vs RFS Prediction
Olimpija was unbeaten in 21 of their last 26 games and found the back of the net in 16 of their last 19. At home, they have posted some enviable stats. From the period starting from last September, they have lost just once in front of the home crowd. In the midst, they had a very long unbeaten run of 21 fixtures and netted goals in 24 of their last 26 such ties too.
In addition, they had also scored twice or more in 12 of their last 14, while keeping clean sheets in two of their last four appearances at home.
Meanwhile, RFS lost four of their last seven games and was winless in nine of their last twelve clashes. On the road, they remain winless in their last five games and embarrassingly failed to score in all five.
With them severely handicapped with the away status, the setting is in place for the hosts to register a win in this first leg.
