Balzan VS Domžale

Preview
Balzan and Domžale face at MFA Centenary Stadium, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round). The only recent head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 17‑06‑2017, and ended in a (2‑0) win by Domžale. Balzan registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Balzan

The home team makes its debut in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive result, using the home advantage in their favour. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 5 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got a home tie against Proleter Novi Sad by (0‑0). In the last 10 home matches Balzan has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In the last 9 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 5 of their 10 goals between minutes (0'‑15'); they have conceded 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Balzan arrive at this stage of the Europa League after having won the Malta Cup, after triumphing in the Valleta final. It is important to note that the 2018/2019 championship did not go very well for this team as they finished in 6th place in the league table. In the last game played, the home team registered a goalless draw against Proleter. In this first encounter against Domzale, coach Jacques Scerri must step in with his standard model, favor a more defensive style of play and look for counterattacks through the aisles. At the individual level we highlight Stefan Dimic, who is very fast and competent in the transport of the ball for the attack. The whole squad is available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: K. Naumovski, A. Kosorić, I. Božović, S. Bezzina, U. Ljubomirac, P. Fenech, N. Šljivić, R. Correa, S. Dimić, S. Pisani, A. Effiong.

Analysis of Domžale

The team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 28 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 40 goals scored and 15 conceded. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got a home win against Voždovac by (1‑0). In the last 10 away matches Domžale has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 21 of the last 30 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals.

Domzale had a very positive performance in the last Slovenian Championship, finishing third with 63 points. It is important to inform that the great winner of this competition were Maribor. In the last game played, a friendly against Vozdovac, the visiting club won 1-0. While playing away from home, coach Simon Rozman should benefit from keeping ball possession and organized attacks, looking for the most advanced Shamar Nicholson: the Jamaican is a very powerful and strong player in the finalization. For this game the coach can count on all his players.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Sorčan, T. Klemenčič, G. Dobrovoljc, G. Sikošek, A. Vetrih, J. Čorluka, A. Čerin, S. Ibričić, S. Vuk, M. Podlogar, T. Mujan.

Betting suggestion:

Domzale come to this first meeting with great favoritism and we agree with that. The Slovenian team have a more developed and strong squad at all levels of play, hoping to use all their experience to win a good advantage on this tie. On the part of Balzan we do not expect great income, considering the lack of weapons in their squad. Having said this, and given the great inequalities of resources, we believe Domzale will conquer a victory by two or more goals of difference.
