These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of KuPS

The home team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of using the home advantage to get a positive result. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 15 conceded. They come to this match after a away win against Honka by (1‑2). KuPS has won 5, tied 2 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 2. there are 2 periods that stand out in the last 8 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90') and 4 of their 11 goals between (61'‑75').

KuPS arrive for this game motivated after defeating Honka 1-2, thus registering the third triumph in the last four games in this competition: the goals were signed by Saxman and Niskanen. It should be noted that the home team finished third in the 2018 Finnish Championship and for this reason they play this Europa League tie. With victory on the horizon, coach Jani Honkavaara is expected to lead a very offensive team, where Rangel will be the most offensive reference.

Analysis of Vitebsk

The team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 18 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Premier League, they got a home loss against Dinamo Brest by (0‑1). In the last 10 away matches Vitebsk has won 3, tied 3 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In the last 11 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

Vitebsk come to this first qualifying round for the Europa League as a result of winning the 4th position of the 2018 Belorussian Championship, a competition won by BATE Borisov. In the current championship, the visitors have made a very negative season and occupy the 10th position. In the last game, the visitors lost at home to Dynamo Brest 0-1. By playing away from home, coach Sergey Yasinskiy should take the field a more direct team, looking for the counterattack in order to take advantage of the space on the opponent's back: Anton Matveeko may be the major player in this type of transition. The whole squad is available for this first match.

Confirmed Lineup: D. Guschenko, A. Khubutia, D. Chalov, M. Kozlov, O. Karamushka, Maranhão, A. Skitov, A. Stargorodskiy, N. Zolotov, M. Feshchuk, K. Pechenin.

Betting suggestion:

KuPS play at home and are more qualified compared to the opponents of this tie, hoping that they will enjoy all this to win this first meeting. In addition, Vitebsk have shown in the last meetings some gaps in the defensive sector. In this way, we believe KuPS will have a good advantage for the second leg match.
