Radnicki Nis left no doubt and proved they are heavy favourites to progress to the second round after an all-round performance at their backyard that surpassed Gzira United by a massive 4-0 margin. It is obvious that the Serbian League is far superior to the Maltese league and thus this separates the two Europa League debutants

We can look at a similar display from Radnicki, who had an excellent finish to the league campaign and a solid pre-season to go with it.

Gzira vs Radnicki Match Preview

Radnicki Nis have been in fine form recently and they kept the momentum going with the 4-0 win in the first leg against Gzira United last week.

The Serbians came to the match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Rostov and a five-game unbeaten streak going as far back as mid-May. They’ve been a very tough side to beat at home ground and Nenad Lalatovic’s men will be happy to have bagged an crushing win in the first leg at the Gradski Stadion Cair.

Gzira United boast a solid record in their domestic league and we’ve seen them beat Sant Julia in Europa League already, where they snatched a 0-2 away win in the first leg and confirmed the success with a 2-1 home win. However, Serbian rivals proved to be a lot more of a challenge and it will be interesting to see how they hold on in the second leg.

Gzira United finished 3rd on Malta Premier League table last term, but have a lot to prove on Thursday night.
