We offer a forecast for the Europa League match, in which Olimpia will host Vikingur from Reykjavik on 27 August. Will proud Icelanders be able to resist? – the answer is in our material.
The six-time Slovenian champion took third place last season, which brought the team a ticket to the Europa League qualification. For 36 rounds, Olimpia managed to get 20 victories and seven world wins, which brought 67 points, which is only two less than the first Celle.
The ” dragons ” have the second indicator in the attack line, which was able to hit the opponent’s goal 73 times. The best snipers were Vukushicha (26 goals) and Chekidzhi and Menalo (10 goals each ). In the last match, the ” green-whites ” lost the world with the champion (2: 2).
The five-time champion and two-time Icelandic Cup winner in the last tournament took ninth place in the championship, but managed to get the Island Cup. In the current season “Vikinigur” started unsuccessfully. After 11 rounds, the “ red-blacks ” have three victories and five world wins, which brought 14 points and eighth place in the standings.
After the victory over Akranes on July 18 (6: 2), Arnar Bergmann Gunnløigsson’s charges lost one match and ended three with the world. In the last duel the team drew with Fjolnir (1: 1).
Olimpia have lost 5 of their last 7 home games
Vikingur have not lost four games in a row away
Ljubljana has scored at least three goals in 5 of its last 10 matches
The opponents will play their first match in the history of confrontations
In our opinion, teams from different weight categories meet today. For the guests, reaching the next stage will be a historic victory, but we believe that the state of the Icelandic team leaves much to be desired.
Most likely, we will see viscous football performed by opponents, but still the hosts’ chances are much higher. We assume that Olimpia will not have any special problems and will calmly advance to the next round.
Our prediction is that Olimpia will win + total less than 3.5 goals and we bet on this on the line of Betcity with odds 2.35
