Sileks to Win
Petrocub finished second in the Divizia Naționala to book their place in the Europa Conference League qualifiers. On the other hand, Sileks were relegated in their domestic league but find themselves in the European elite thanks to their triumph in the Macedonian Football Cup. While their form has nothing great to write home about, their recent pedigree in cup competitions tilts our expectations in their favour. They should be able to make use of home advantage and book a result in their favour.
Total Goals Under 2.5
The domestic season has yet to begin in North Macedonia and Sileks have only had two club friendlies to prepare for their European adventure. Both matches had a similar scoreline 1-0 but with different victors. Moreover, their last five matches have not gone past two goals. Petrocup has not fared much better and their last four matches have been in similar territory. With both sides having little to nothing to show for in terms of goals, this match should follow the trend and end with an Under 2.5 goal scoreline.
Both Teams to Score: No
There have been five clean sheets in Sileks last five matches. One has to go to Petrocup’s history and in the seventh game do we see a result where both teams have scored. As the two sides prepare for this European fixture, fans will understandably expect a low scoring fixture. Based on history, they will hope that their side is the one sending the ball past the goalkeeper first and returns home triumphant.
Sileks vs Petrocub Fixture Preview
The Kratovo Boys faced the ignominy of relegation in the 2020/21 Macedonian First League. However, Goran Simov’s men did ease the suffering with their triumph in the Macedonian Football Cup. They can make it even more interesting for their fans by securing qualification to the UEFA Europa Conference League, allowing the much-vaunted Thursday night fixtures.
It is interesting to note the emotions of Petrocub fans when they heard they had drawn relegated Sileks in the qualification fixtures. Relegation does not inspire confidence but the manner in which Sileks had claimed cup honours would have raised alarm bells. Lilian Popescu’s men have had trouble scoring with ease and this is exactly the skill their rivals have perfected. All eyes will be on Mihail Platica to deliver as the midfielder has struck the back of the net in two of his last three outings.
