Breidablik vs Sturm Graz by Goleador
Breidablik today faces Sturm Graz at homeside because the change the home and away game date.
Breidablik current 4th in Iceland Urvasdeild five points behind leader KR. They are one of the best teams in Iceland there´s no doubt, but in Europe they are not on the same level like Sturm. In 1st round Breidablik won their home game against Santa Coloma from Andorra, which I see one class below Breidablik. Home game ended with 4-0, away they played 0-0. Breidablik dominated home game but after 61st minute when they scored their 4th goal it seemed like they were just waiting for the game to end; same in Andorra: they just waited until the game is over and weren´t motivated so the match ended 0-0.
New Sturm coach Milanic, former Maribor coach, won´t underestimate Breidablik, as he describes in an interview. He knows about Breidabliks home strengh and that they can create dangerous situations through freekicks and corners, but Milanic is also very optimisitic and says that Sturm will reach next round.
Sturm bought many new players and the new formed team around coach Milanic seems to have a lot potential. After a really bad season with many problems the team was reinforced with Beric, Hadzic, Beichler, Todorovski, Djuricin and Offenbacher, who have all international experience: Beric (SLO: 2/ SLO U21: 13,4g); Hadzic (AUT: U21,U19); Todorovski (MAZ: 10); Beichler (AUT/AUT U21: 5/3,2g); Djuricin and Offenbacher (both AUT U21,U19). In the beginning of preseason Sturm didn´t play well, but their last test against PSG (without many stars) was a good game and Djuricin and Beric scored, and also CB Vujadinovic. Sturm also won in Austrian Cup against 4th league team Team Wiener Linien with 5-0.
Breidablik is not on the same level as Sturm and Sturm bought some good new players and could keep the most important players of last season. I see Sturm winning this game.
