Slovan Bratislava vs Sutjeska
Champions League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019
Kick off at 19:15 UK / 20:15 CET
Venue: Tehelné pole (Bratislava).
The home side certainly finished their league campaign in style amassing eighty points and eight four goals to their name, to take themselves comfortably up to the top. The squad were undefeated at home last season and scored more than half of their season tally right on home soil.
Their talisman would definitely have to be star striker Andraz Sporar who found the back of the net twenty-nine times for his team last season. He was the top goal scorer in the league by a margin of sixteen goals and also collected four assists as well.
The forward will definitely be a handful if he features on Wednesday and could well give the home side a much-needed advantage to carry into the second leg.
The visitors secured their respective championship with a nine-point advantage at the top and scored fifty-eight goals in the process, which was the most by any team in their league last season.
The team, however, had a disappointing campaign in the Montenegrin Cup where they lost in the semi-finals against Buducnost on the away goals rule. They will surely have to make the best out of the match this week and find the back of the net if they are to ease the pressure on themselves in the return leg.
The team that comes out on top, at the end of the two legs, will lock horns with APOEL in the quarterfinals.

The teams have not previously met each other on any occasion.
Slovan Bratislava vs Sutjeska Prediction
The first-ever meeting between the two sides this week at the Tehelné pole, is likely to see the hosts clinch the win.
The home side never succumbed to defeat in any of their games on home soil in the previous season and are a force to reckon with when they have home advantage under their belt. The squad conceded just twenty goals at home in the previous year, which certainly indicates that they will be very difficult to get past in their defensive third.
The visitors lost out on the chance to get their hands on the Monetengrin Cup after they lost in the semi-finals on the away goals rule. The squad have not been efficient in their trips on the road, which all the more reduces their hopes of finding a win when they travel to take on the home side this week.
We can certainly expect the hosts to win by a slender margin, along with a clean sheet in a hand.
