2017/18 UEFA Champions League Qualifiers
Date: Tuesday, 4th July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadiumi Olimpik Adem Jashari.
Fiton Hajdari scored the historic first goal in European competitions in Trepca’89’s history to leave the Kosovar champions in the tie.
Vikingur did eventually manage to grab the victory in front of their fans, but everything remains open ahead of the rematch at Stadiumi Olimpik Adenm Jashari.
Trepca’89 are making their first ever appearance in European competitions. Unlike their Faroe Island rivals, they are far from their top competitive form since their domestic league saw its last round in late May.
The team led by the Macedonian manager Zekirija Ramadani signed four new players ahead of this season and kept their key figures from the last term of Kosovar Superliga.
The team was quite impressive in pre-season friendlies netting as many as four past Romanian Astra and playing a 1-1 draw with Slovenian Olimpija on the road.
Vikingur are midway through the season in their domestic competition. They currently top Meistaradeildin standings together with KI after 14 rounds of the competition.
The Nigerian striker Adeshina Lawal, who was on target in the first leg against the Kosovars, has generally been in good ouch throughout the season as he bagged seven goals in last six matches in all competitions.
Trepca vs Vikingur: Head to head
The defender Gunnar Vatnhamar pushed Vikingur ahead 17 minutes in the game, but Hajdari annulled the opener just before the break.
It was mentioned Lawal who secured the minimum advantage for the Scandinavians netting the match-winner in the last quarter of the game.
Trepca vs Vikingur: Prediction
This is a massive opportunity for the hosts who will be super motivated to secure their first ever appearance in the second round of Champions League qualifications.
