Petrocub vs Sivasspor
Europe – UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 22 July 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadionul Zimbru.
Petrocub are from the inferior Moldovan top flight, and this alone should cast them as the underdogs this Thursday – especially since they are taking on an in-form Sivasspor from the prestigious Turkish Super Lig.
Petrocub had to settle for a second-place finish the last season in the Moldovan National Division League, below Sheriff. The former were trailing by 16 points at the end of the campaign.
They were not even able to dominate a qualitatively inferior competition like the National Division League, and now they are pitted against a team from one of Europe’s top performing domestic leagues.
Note that Sivasspor showed incredible spirit in securing the last European spot in the Super Lig, and they hope to carry forward this mentality to the Conference League as well.
The team will surely go after a win despite being on the road, and try to finish off the tie in the first leg itself. Moreover, this is a knockout game, with huge implications to their European ambitions. They are not going to take chances.

- This is the first encounter between the two teams.
Petrocub vs Sivasspor Prediction
Sivasspor are on a 17-game unbeaten streak, and they had won nine of their past thirteen games. Note that they have also not lost once in the past six-month period on the road.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their past six overall match-ups, and importantly, they are from an inferior league.
As such, expect a win for the guests this Thursday. Still, judging the form of hosts Petrocub, and their determination, count on them to find the back of the net at least once. Moreover, the Turks have a total of just one clean sheet on the road in their past ten attempts.
