Radnik Bijeljina vs Spartak Trnava
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Gradski stadion (Bijeljina).
Radnik finished a modest fifth in their league the last season. Quite honestly, they had no chance to catch those above them in the table, and even their fifth spot was grabbed after intense competition. Just a single point separated three squads below Bijeljina, on the board.
One thing that stands out for them is their inability to consistently score goals. In fact, from their 33 fixtures in their league campaign, the squad could produce just 29 goals. Even the bottom-most Gabela had 23 to their name.
Opponents Trnava too has a similar trend associated with them, though they have been very slightly in front in that regard. They had a goal difference of zero, which probably cost them a spot in the Championship group.
Disregarding the friendlies in the preseason, the team has not still shed off their habit of struggling to perform in front of the goal. The problem becomes severe when they are on the road. As such, their objective for the day would be to limit the number of conceded goals and hit back at home, for progression to the next round.

- These two teams are yet to test waters against each other.
Radnik Bijeljina vs Spartak Trnava Prediction
Bijeljina could manage just two goals in total, from their last five appearances at home. Even from their last two friendly ties, they have recorded just two goals, highlighting a long-standing issue.
Last time around in their domestic league, the team was outscored by every squad bar two. And one of these two was the bottom-most placed group. Keeping in tandem with their opponents, Spartak too possesses the same problem, especially on the road. They too have scored just two goals from their last five official games on the road, and the last time they managed to score twice or more was in November of last year.
As such, expect a low goal-scoring tie. As in regards to the result, the home advantage puts the ball in Radnik’s court. Also consider that the hosts of the day were unbeaten in 12 of their last 15 home ties, while their opposite number went winless in 16 of their last 19 on the road.
