Ruzomberok take on Everton at “Stadion pod Cebraťom” in the reverse fixture of the Qualification semi-final of the UEFA Europa League 2017/2018. The match will be played in Ruzomberok on Thursday, August 3rd. The first-leg game ended with 1:0 scoreline in favour of Everton.
Ruzomberok opened the new season on the 29th of June. In the UEFA Europa League the Slovakian side knocked out Serbian Vojvodina 1:2, 2:0 and Norwegian Brann 0:1, 2:0 and got 0:1 loss to the Brits in the first-leg encounter. In Slovakia’s Fortuna Liga Ruzomberok were broken by Z. Moravce with 1:2 scoreline and thrashed 4:0 Senica. In total, the Slovak club has played seven clashes in this season resulting in three triumphs and four defeats which demonstrates its inconsistency.

In their turn, Everton have sold one of their super forwards Romelu Lukaku this summer and signed their former trainee and the legend of English football Wayne Rooney. These are the main transfers of “The Toffees” during the summer break. Wayne Rooney has already played his debut match in his old-new club leaving no impression but his team won what is the most important.
Taking into account the fact that the Slovak side wasn’t smashed in the first-leg game in Liverpool, I believe it will give a fight to the English team and there won’t be many goals scored in the home battle. In fact, the UEFA Europa League is not so solid and important for Everton, consequently, Ronald Koeman’s side is unlikely to put all its strength together in the first rounds of the tournament.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
