Partizani VS Maribor

Partizani Tirana and Maribor meet at Stadiumi Selman Stërmasi, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round). 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 Partizani Tirana

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 is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a home loss against Kamza by (0‑1). Partizani Tirana has won 5, tied 1 and lost 4 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 19 of the last 45 matches have ended ended with Under 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

The Partizani team arrives in this first round of the Europa League as a result of their 5th place finish in the Albanian championship. The previous season, the Albanians were eliminated from the Europa League precisely at this stage by Botev Plovdiv. In this first game against Maribor it is anticipated that coach Skender Gega plays in 4-4-2 privileging the low block and the counterattacks through the runners: Bardhi and Asani should complete the flanks of the team. Of course, the locals have enormous defensive and offensive fragilities. For this game the coach can count on all the players.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Hoxha, L. Ibrahimi, E. Belica, R. Gojković, L. Trashi, R. Kalari, B. Telushi, A. Hila, G. Progni, E. Mala, J. Asani.
Coach: S. Gega.

Analysis of Maribor

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 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 47 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got a home win against Čukarički by (2‑1). In the last 10 away matches Maribor has won 9 and tied 1. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 53 of the last 60 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 40 out of 60 have ended with Over 2,5 goals.

The Maribor team arrives at this stage of the Europa League, which is the result of the 2nd position achieved in the Slovenian championship. We remember that the team competed in the group stage of the Champions League the previous season. Usually coach Darko Milanic opts for a 4-3-3 tactical formation, privileging ball possession and organized attacks, especially through the right aisle. Striker Luka Zahovic is one of the great highlights of the team, being this very fast in the finalization. It is important to emphasize that Maribor shows competence in the defensive set pieces and aerial game. Apparently there are no absences for this clash.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Handanovič, M. Viler, M. Šuler, S. Ivković, M. Milec, B. Vrhovec, A. Derviševič, M. Kramarič, L. Zahovič, G. Bajde, Marcos Tavares.
Coach: D. Milanič.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this clash will be Maribor's victory. Even playing away from home, we believe that the Slovenian team will beat Partizani with some ease as they enjoy a superior squad compared to their opponents. In addition, the lack of weapons of the home team will be crucial for the outcome of this match in favor of the away team.
