Stjarnan vs FC Levadia Tallinn (By: Dajkula)
Stjarnan welcomes Levadia Tallinn in the first qualification round for the Europa League. The leagues are well underway so both teams are in competitive rhythm. Stjarnan is the 4`th team of the Pepsideild while Levadia is the second team of the Meistrilliga and are in the fight for the title. There is not much separating the teams or even the leagues and it is actually quite hard to determine the quality. They also have similar UEFA rankings. The advantage, however, I believe, is with the home side. Stjarnan is quite a physical side and they can handle the mediocre Levadia which doesn`t have much technical quality.
Stjarnan is the side that will pick all the points at home. They are just useless when traveling and actually they haven`t been very lucky in the Europa League. They faced Inter and Kobenhavn in the past seasons but they have wins over Poznan and most notably the Estonian Nomme Kalju last year. They won that game with 3:0.
Levadia is a poor traveler in Europe. They won over HB in 2016 but lost 9 of the last 11 away from home. Cork City, Dundalk, Bala town, Siailuai all took wins against them.
I believe Stjarnan can manage to win today.
P.S. Levadia is missing their two important midfielders today – Tkachuk(15-0) and the second scorer Budnik(14-10).
