Partizani take on the visitors Salzburg in the round three of Champions League qualification. The game will be played on Tuesday, July 26th at Kemal Stafa Stadium in Tiran.
Partizani are the runners-up of the last season in Albania but they took the place in Champions League instead of the league winners. Moreover, the team have already passed one stage of the qualification after beating Hungarian side Ferencvaros on penalties (1-1, 1-1). Partizani played ten matches at home in 2016, taking five wins, three draws and two defeats.

Salzburg won both the league title and domestic Cup in Austria in season 2015-16. The visiting side have already played four matches this season, eliminating Vorwarts Steyr in the cup, 3-1, Liepaja in the previous qualifying round, 1-0, 2-0. However, they unexpectedly lost the opening game on Austrian Bundesliga to Sturm Graz, 3-1. That defeat ended Salzburg nine-match unbeaten streak in matches on the road.
Partizani and Salzburg haven’t faced one another before. Even home support doesn’t make Albanian runners-up favorites in matchup with Austrian double winners. The levels of the clubs are incomparable and Partizani have small chances in the matchup. On top of that, Salzburg would want to bounce back after bitter defeat in the first matchday in domestic league.
Prediction for the match: Salzburg to win.
