FC Ballkani vs Slavia Prague – In UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) Group G, there are only three points separating the top-two teams from the bottom-two teams, therefore both Ballkani, who are currently in fourth place, and Slavia Prague, who are currently in third place, need to win to advance. The Kosovan champions Ballkani will be hoping for a favorable outcome to extend their first European campaign into the new year if the other game in Group G between Sivasspor and Cluj ends equal.
Ballkani have had some difficulties on the European front, while being on track to win their second Kosovan championship in as many seasons if they can continue with victories in their current games. Although they had taken a lead at halftime in both of their home group games, they have only won once so far, a tremendously interesting 4-3 comeback victory at Sivasspor.
FC Ballkani vs Slavia Prague – Betting Analysis
However, they have yet to win at home (D1, L1). Slavia Prague has used the period since their 2-0 loss in Cluj, which left them tied for first place with Ballkani on four points, establishing their dominance at home. After two straight 4-0 victories over fierce rivals Sparta Prague and Dukla Prague, supporters may feel as though they had the run of the city, but a seven-hour goalless stretch away from home prior to their cup victory over Dukla is still a cause for concern.
Slavia, who has advanced at least as far as the quarterfinal round in three of their past four European campaigns, may view anything less than success as a failure. Even though Sparta is considered one of the favorites going into their first trip to Pristina, they have only managed two victories in their last 13 away games in Europe (D4, L7).
The key contest will be to stop Slavia’s Peter Olayinka. Ballkani defender Armend Thaqi has done well to contribute to four goals over his last four European games (G2, A2). When Slavia recently played their city rivals, the forward scored in the first and second half of stoppage time. Hot fact: No team has experienced more than the 17 goals scored in Ballkani’s (4.25 average) first four group games in the eight groups of the UECL.
