Vaduz vs Levski
Vaduz host Levski in the start of EL qualifications.
Vaduz is Lichhtenstein team, which play in the Swiss challenge league. They finished in fourth place last season, really close to the 2nd and 3rd team in the final table. They were also one of the best home teams and play with attacking formation 4-3-3, so Levski can not be big favourite in this game for sure. Yeah, they are favourite in the tie, but not in the first game. Have the bad feeling Levski will lose with minimal result 2:1 or 1:0 and will have to turn the things in Sofia after a week. Vaduz is a team full of Swiss and Lichtenstein players, combined with a few others from Serbia, Croatia or Ukraine. They changed a lot of their players, so it's totally unpredictable for Levski what to expect from a team, which can defend well and also create a lot of chances in forward positions.
Levski won the third place in Bulgarian league and that gave them the chance to play in EL. Levski have big problems in their team, because they will miss the brazilian players Paulinho and Rivaldinho for this match. Also they will miss their best defender Holmar Eyjolfsson, who is Iceland national player and has longer resting time. Antionio Vutov will not continue to play for the club as he was of the important players during the last Levski season and that's another big miss, but the biggest of all is the heart of the team, Roman Prochazka, left the club in the summer and went to Victoria Pilzen. He is absolutely inreplacable football player in the middle of the team and it will be interesting how the team will look without him. Gabriel Obertan and Sergiu Bus are the players which can create something for Levski and score goal/s, but Vaduz will concentrate on stopping them for sure. The worst thing is that Levski starting line-up looks absolutely predictable, even I can say it right now and at least 10 of the 11 starting player will be correct. That's a huge bonus for Vaduz, which starting line up is unpedictable with all the new players.
Odds are totally strange for me and it will be much more equal game than the odds suggest. Better option, if you don't want to risk too much, is to play it double chance 1X or Vaduz(draw no bet), but I will go straight with Vaduz to win the match. Still think Levski is capable of eliminating their opponent in Sofia, but in Vaduz I feel they will have some troubles and this tille surprise is not excluded. Will try it.
