Spartak Trnava hosts Sepsi Sfantu Gheorghe in the first leg of the Europa Conference League qualification quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, July 22nd at City Arena Trnava (Trnava)
Spartak Trnava has won both the champion’s title and the Slovak Cup more than once. But last season the White Angels limited themselves to only 3rd place in the Fortuna Liga, so they should play in the Conference League qualification. Moreover, the team from Trnava debuted there with a defeat. On 6 July, Maltese Mosta was leading 3-0 by the 35th minute in the home match. Fortunately, then Spartak woke up and almost made a comeback (2-3). And at home, the White Angels were able to achieve the desired score. By the 34th minute, Twardzik and Yusuf scored two goals needed, and then Spartak Trnava successfully maintained this handicap and advanced to the next round.

Sepsi Sfantu Gheorghe celebrates its first anniversary this season, as the club was founded in 2011. Already in 2017, the Red-and-Whites were in the elite division, and they managed to leave Liga II in only one season. At first, the team was among the middle peasants (9th place, then 6th, and again 9th). But in 2020, Sepsi managed to break into the cup final and lost it. The next step was the previous season, which brought the 4th place. Leontin Grozavu's men managed to get the right to make their debut in the European Cup arena, and this will happen on Thursday. But the season in Romania started last weekend, and Sepsi was able to gain a landslide victory over Academica Clinceni at home. Goals were scored by Rep (a Slovenian newcomer who moved from Austria during the offseason) and experienced defender Mitrea, who used to play in Trnava.
Sepsi is one of the youngest clubs in Romania, which is making its debut at the European Cup level. So, this will be its first head-to-head match against Spartak Trnava. The teams look pretty equal in strength. Let's believe that they will please the fans with a rather spectacular match. We are waiting for Over 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
