Maribor clearly expects to be in the Europa League group, but whether Coleraine will become an obstacle on its way on August 27 – the answer is in the forecast. What will be the result?
Maribor failed last season – the team of Sergei Yakirovich was the main favorite for the championship, but in the end it turned out to be only the second. The title “violet” lost to “Celje”, lagging behind him in the total by two points. So far in the new season Maribor has not played a single match and was preparing for the start of the Europa League qualification through friendly matches – in the last of them Gorica was defeated with a score of 6: 1.
Coleraine fought for the championship last season but ended up losing the competition to Linfield. In the table of the main contenders for the title, only four points were shared, and Oran Kearney’s team went to the Europa League qualification.
Unlike their current rival, Coleraine have already played several official matches in the new season. In the Northern Ireland Cup semi-finals, he lost to Ballymina in a penalty shootout, and in the Europa League he managed to deal with La Fiorita, beating the club from San Marino with a score of 1: 0 at home.
Maribor have won four wins in their last five home games
Only in one of the last five home games did Maribor score less than two goals
Coleraine have not conceded in only one of their last three away games
Maribor failed to win the title in the championship and flew past the Champions League, but it will clearly strive to break into the Europa League group. Coleraine is unlikely to be able to create even the slightest problem for the violet – in the class the Slovenes have a tremendous advantage – with the team that put the squeeze on the club from San Marino in the last seconds in the last stage, Maribor should deal confidently.
