UE Engordany vs La Fiorita (By: PlayMaker)
UE Engordany is just a small team in Andora, so they are not expected to pass the Europa League preliminaries. However, being able to play at the continental playing field will also be an opportunity for Filipe Busto and his players to prove their abilities, so they have made great efforts and won in the first leg of the preliminary round against La Fiorita.
La Fiorita is underestimated by rivals because San Marino is Europe's most underdeveloped football country. Failure on home turf has also made it hard to expect upstream in the return leg to La Fiorita.
In fact, the UE Engordany is still a good quality team, so the fact that they are receiving appreciation from the experts is completely understandable. If playing properly, not only can the result be saved in the first leg but the victory is also within the hand of the host, because they are also playing quite stable whenever they return to their home.
Currently La Fiorita squad is of very low value and all are anonymous players from Italy, while UE Engordany also has valuable names in the transfer market, along with a uniformity professional quality. Last season they played firstly in UCL Preliminary Semifinal but lost to Lincoln Red. This year they are dropped to an easier journey when playing in Europa League Preliminary but the loss at home show again their limited ability in European tournament.
Home side did not have a successful season as they finished only at 4th place in championship group, but thanks to the winner in Cup Final, they got a ticket to this qualifiers. Last year they have reached to 1st round and stop against strong side Kairat Almaty. So now they have a chance to at least reestablish this record.
It can be seen that UE Engordany does not show that their performance is really effective when in the last 14 matches in every tournament they have never had more than 2 goals in each match, so if La Fiorita accepts a match as the underdog and concentrating on defense, it is very difficult for homeowners to have an explosive match. The 1st leg had been played in quite balance game and each side got a red card at the end of the match. Engordany took the lead and save it until the end thanks to their better experience in this arena, but I don't think La Fiorita will give up easily in 2nd leg.
