Sivasspor vs Ballkani
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 6 October 2022
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Yeni 4 Eylül Stadyumu.
Sivasspor are the reigning Turkish Cup winners, and they also have been a major presence in the Turkish football scene for the past several years. This Thursday at home, they will be the favorites to deliver a win against minnows, Ballkani.
Ballkani are from the comparatively much inferior Kosovan top flight, and they lack in experience in these kinds of European games. In terms of talent as well as exposure, they are far behind their counterparts for the day.
On top of that they are also on the road, where they have not been at their best lately. In fact, they have a 100% losing record on the road so far, and let in the most number of goals in such match-ups.
Meanwhile, Sivasspor are placed second in the table, and they are level on points with toppers Slavia Prague. They have a 100% unbeaten record so far, and they let in just one goal till now in the entire competition.
Count on them to go after a win at any cost this Thursday. They just cannot let toppers Slavia run away with the first place.
Expect Sivasspor to post the three points on the board against the inferior Ballkani.
