Sfintul Gheorghe vs Partizan – Europa League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Second qualifying round knockout match, with Sfintul taking on Partizan on Thursday the 17th of September, 2020, at Stadionul Zimbru, in Chisinau.

Sfintul eliminated Shakhtyor from Belarus in the first qualifying round, beating them on penalties. Shakhtyor were left with 10 men just 28 minutes into the game, but Sfintul failed to make their numerical advantage on the pitch really count. The 90 minutes passed without a goal, same with extra-time, but at least in the penalty shootout the Moldovan side did better than the Belarusians to qualify. Their current form reads; WWWLW. They last played exactly a week ago, they beat Speranţa Nisporeni 0-2 in Moldova’s championship. Nine game weeks into the season there, Sfintul are third on the table, on 21 points, six behind leaders Sheriff. Coach Serghei Cebotari has been in charge since April 2018. Belarusian Roman Volkov, 33, is their leading scorer thus far this season, on five goals from seven appearances in Moldova’s championship. His case is an interesting one, as this is the first time he left his country, Belarus, to play abroad, despite being at the… mature age of 33.

Partizan were expected to qualify easily over Rigas FS in the first round, but they ended up struggling. They did win, 1-0, but they needed a penalty for that, in the 51st minute. Their current form reads; WLWWW. They last played on Saturday, they beat fellow Belgrade side Rad 3-0. They are third on the table in Serbia’s championship, on 15 points from seven games, six points behind leaders Crvena Zvezda who have maintained a perfect record (7X3) thus far. Coach Aleksandar Stanojevic took over just over two weeks ago, succeeding Savo Milošević who left right before the international break, following Partizan’s 3-2 loss to Vojvodina (a game in which they took the lead twice, but failed to even salvage a point. They did play with 10 men for more than 45 minutes, though). Israeli Bibras Natcho took that penalty against Rigas FS that pushed Partizan to the Europa League second qualifying round. This is his second season at the club.

Sfintul’s game against Shakhtyor in the first round was their first ever in a UEFA competition, so obviously there is no history between them and Partizan, or any other Serbian team.

Partizan cannot afford to fall victims to a mega surprise in this game. Even by… half a goal, they have to win.

A 0-1 victory for Partizan is predicted at full-time.

Date: Thursday, 17th of September, 2020.

Venue: Stadionul Zimbru

Kick-off time: 19:00 (GMT+2).
