Academy Pandev vs Zrinjski Mostar Prediction & Match Preview

Academy Pandev vs Zrinjski Mostar
Europa League Qualifying
Date: Thursday 11th July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Kukus (Strumica).

This will be a very open game where there are no favourites as these teams are fairly equal. At a push Zrinjski Mostar will probably be the slight favourites even if they are playing away.

Academy Pandev will be hoping to have a decent atmosphere at their stadium as they search for a good result heading into the 2nd leg to give themselves some chance.

However, their stadium holds just 1,500 fans, almost all of them at least will be in support for them, but this could be a very tactical game played like a game of chess between the two sides. Just one mistake will let the other win in.

Zrinjski have better experience when it comes to Europa League qualification, take last season where they reached the third round qualifying. They have lost just 1 game in Europa League qualifying from their last 5 and in the end, it was a quality team in Ludogorets that ended their Europa League chances last season.

Academy Pandev vs Zrinjski Mostar: Prediction

When we talk about experience and being in this situation many times before then we have to make Mostar the favourites to win this game. They are a good value price, but this match could end up being a draw and we do expect a close game. But if we go down that route the odds become very short.

This is a game where we will take some risks and back the away side to get the win, and this will be our only choice for this game, although we don’t expect many goals and backing under 2.5 could also be a good option.
