Balzan FC vs NK Domzale (By: DamirJ)
Balzan had a decent spell in the previous Europa League campaign, as the side managed to exclude Azeri Keshla with a 5:3 aggregate score and mostly thanks to their great performance at home where they won with a 4:1 result.
The side also got a home victory over Slovakian side Slovan Bratislava 2:1, but couldn't hold the opponent in the second leg when they were beaten with a 3:1 result.
The team has ended the Maltese domestic league as sixth in the previous season, having fifteen points less than the champions from Valletta. However, they had a great ending of the season winning the Maltese FA Trophy in the middle of May, thanks to victories against Tarxien, Birkirkara and Valletta after overtime and penalty kicks.
They have signed a couple of players of similar quality as they had in the previous season, being oriented to players from abroad, mostly from Balkan countries such as Serbia and Northern Macedonia. It seems that they have won more in the quality than they have lost so far in the transfer window.
Domzale had quite a decent previous season, as they ended as the third in the domestic league behind giants from Maribor and NK Olimpija Ljubljana.
Additionally, they have ended the season with nine undefeated matches. During the preparational period, they had victories over Lokomotiva Zagreb, FK Sarajevo, and Vozdovac, losing at the start to Serbian vice-champions from Radnicki Nis.
They have signed very experienced central back Ilic from Vejle, but also right back Corluka from Siroki Brijeg and center back Karic from Derby U23. The team should be of pretty much the same quality.
With the way how Balzan ended the season and looked like in previous years in the qualifiers, but also with the way they play - I expect them not to be afraid of attacking here at all. Domzale remains a favorite even in the case that they don't win here, but I definitely see them scoring as well.
