Domzale vs FC Ufa
Europa League Qualifiers
Date: Thursday, 2nd August 2018
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Sporting Park Domzale.
Domzale have the reputation of making strong runs in the qualifier and look to finish off the tie against Ufa on a high note after the reverse leg in Russia ending goal-less.
The Slovenians are quite strong at home and they drew Marseille at this venue last season. Currently on an 8 match unbeaten streak in that aspect, key wins against West Ham and Freiburg.
FC Ufa are debutants in Europa and they are expected to rely on what they know best; pack the defense and park the bus and hope for the best.
The Russian did restrict the strong Slovenian opposition to just 2 shots on goal in the first leg, so do not expect this match to see many goals.

FC Ufa vs Domzale Preview
Ufa have struggled to lift their team spirits through the pre-season with a rather tough schedule and they host Domzale for their Europa League Qualifiers clash looking for a return to the winning ways after losses to both Istanbul Basaksehir and Udinese since mid-July.
Gorozhane have thus bagged just two wins in eight pre-season outings but we’ve seen them regularly scoring goals and Sergey Tomarov will obviously hope Domzale will not be the same sort of a challenge here. They’ve struggled for consistency but have based success on solid performances here and will now be looking to recuperate quickly ahead of the all-important clash.
Domzale started their season early and only qualified to the 2nd Qualifying Round with two draws against Bosnian rivals Siroki Brijeg, with a 2-2 draw on the road and a 1-1 draw in front of the home crowd. They come into the match on the back of a 2-0 win over Krsko, finally keeping a clean sheet after eight occasions where they failed to do so and surely hoping to build on the performance.
