Fenerbahce take on the visitors Austria Vienna in the second leg of UEFA Europa League qualification finals. First leg result: 2-0. The match will be played on Thursday, August 25th at Ülker Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Fenerbahce again did do well in qualification. The "Canaries" for too long, as for themselves, remain without serious success. Suffice it to say that the Istanbul Grand has not taken the championship title since 2014. It seems that against this background, the 2nd place, taken in the spring, could be estimated relatively highly. But I wanted to reach a higher level, and Jorge Jesus had to lead them to it. However, the Portuguese is only exploring the possibilities of his wards. Plus, there are plenty of new players. As a result, the “raw” Turks, with all their advantage, lost the dispute in the Champions League to the very first opponent, Dynamo Kyiv. But in the Europa League, the "canaries" confidently passed Slovacko and made a good start to the overall success in Vienna.

Austria can now compete for a maximum of 2-3 places in the domestic arena. The "Purple" 24 times became the champion of the country. And the cups were won 3 times more! But now the metropolitan club, like all the others, is not the first year in the shadow of the dominant Red Bull. All the time the titles are sent to Salzburg, and the rest is left to fight for the “silver” and, periodically, the cup. Last season brought Austria only 3rd place - not only the favorite finished higher, but also Sturm from Graz. As a result, the club, which had previously managed to start in the new Austrian championship (and not very successfully), went to the Europa League, where it started at home last week. Almost nothing happened: the guests from Turkey scored already in the 8th minute, and doubled the score before the final whistle when Austria was already playing with 10 men.
Both Austria and Fenerbahce are considered among the leaders of football at the national level, and regularly play in European competition. It is even strange that only in this round the teams crossed paths for the first time. Fenerbahce already showed the difference in class on the road. And I can't believe that now Austria will suddenly be able to turn the tide, the game is turning into a kind of formality. We recommend betting that the Turks will win in the 1st half and the match.
Prediction for the match: Fenerbahce to win the first half and the match.
