Tre Fiori vs Rudar Velenje
Europa League First qualifying round
Date: Thursday, 19 July 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Tullo Morgagni (Forli).
This tie is put to death in the first leg itself after Rudar run rout with a 7-0 win.
Then San Marino based club Tre Fiori are debutants in Europe, reached the first round after beating Welsh side Bala Town in the preliminaries.
Tre Fiori did manage to limit the damage in the first 45 minutes as they conceded just 1 goal during the period. However, lack of experience in playing a higher level came to haunt them in the second period and the team conceded as many as 6 goals.
It is fair to say the Slovenians are in the safe zone and cannot lose the tie from here.
The first leg clash resulted in a 7-0 Rudar win is the lone h2h meeting between the sides.
Slovenians Rudar Velenje were massive odds on favourites when they will take on semi-professional team from San Marino Tre Fiori over 2 legs.
Rudar are lower than 1.08 to win the match and given that the first leg is at home it seems almost impossible to see a different result.
The Slovenian domestic season will start a few days after their 2nd leg, but they made a flying start to competitive campaign with a thumping 7-0 win.
Tre Fiori have a big problem on their hands and the best they can do is try to enjoy the game and keep the score low.
It would be incredible for them to get a goal on Thursday, but even if they do people are expecting the floodgates to open once again and it could be a long night for them.
