Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 28 July 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Gradski stadion Tusanj.
Tuzla City play host to Alkmaar in a match of their second-leg of Europa Conference League Qualification. Thursday’s game could witness the same intensity from the first-leg, as both sides battle it out at Gradski stadion Tusanj.
Last week, these two sides met at AFAS Stadion where a 1-0 victory was secured by Dutch side. Dani de Wit scored the winning goal at the 12th minute through a penalty. Interestingly, Tuzla City had no shots on target in that game.
Tuzla City finished 2nd in the Bosnian Premier League last term. They gained 57 points from 33 games, recording 15 wins and a dozen draws. That runner-up achievement gave them this ECL qualifier ticket.
The Bosnian side made their first appearance in the Europa Conference League first qualifying round earlier this month, battering Tre Penne by 8-0 on aggregate and thereby they got advanced into this second round.
On the other side, AZ Alkmaar are not new to UEFA club competitions. They have been Europa League runners-up once, semi-finalists once and quarter-finalists 3 times. The visitors have been one of the best teams in the Dutch top flight for the past several years.
Over the course of their previous six clashes, AZ have bagged a tally of 13 goals while having also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. In that time, they have seen 9 goals go against them.

Tuzla City vs Alkmaar Prediction
In their 9 most recent matches of UEFA Europa Conference League, AZ Alkmaar have been undefeated 8 times. They have even managed to score more than once in their last 9 matches in the same competition. The side lost just once from their last 9 games played across various tournaments.
Meanwhile, Tuzla City are currently on a 3-game unbeaten run at home. But the side currently lag a goal from the first-leg. They even couldn’t fire a shot on target in that game.
We feel that the hosts will fight better this time but ultimately, a win could be secured by the visiting side.
