On August 27, in the qualifying round of the Europa League, there will be a duel between Tbilisi Lokomotiv and Romanian KSU Craiova. How the teams will play and what bet to place, read our forecast.
Lokomotiv Tbilisi finished fourth in the Georgian championship last season, which allowed it to qualify for the Europa League. However, the current tournament “railroad” is so far not doing well, gaining only 13 points in ten matches, and so far occupy the sixth place.
However, the last two matches the team played in the first place in defense, first beating Dila away 1: 0, and then playing a draw, and also away, 0: 0 against Samtredia.
KSU Craiova , founded seven years ago on the basis of the famous club of the same city – Universitatea, last season took the second highest place for itself in the Romanian championship, leaving ahead only the leader of the national football of recent years, CFR Cluj.
But silver medals for a championship with a low European rating mean only a ticket to the Europa League. In the recently started new season, the team managed to play only one calendar match of the Major League, winning 1: 0 against Sepsi.
Lokomotiv lost only once in the last five league matches
KSU Craiova won seven out of eight previous official matches
This will be the first face-to-face meeting of two rivals
The class of commands is, of course, not comparable. The “railroad workers” in their field will most likely try not to hit their faces in the mud, and, most likely, they will not miss a lot, but it is unrealistic for them to even hope for a draw in the main time. But we still advise you to make a cautious bet with reinsurance.
We recommend placing a combined bet. Our forecast is a double chance of KSU Craiova + total goals under (3.5) . On this outcome 1XBet offers odds of 1.82
