Olimpija Ljubljana vs Valmiera match preview

Olimpija Ljubljana are big favourites to advance through this tie, therefore hoping to claim a comfortable first leg victory at home.

The Dragons lifted a third Slovenian PrvaLiga title last season, now hoping to use that as a springboard, seeking to make club history in Europe.

To date, Olimpija Ljubljana’s best run in UEFA competition is to the play-off round, beaten by Spartak Trnava five years ago.

Since then, all five of the Green and Whites’ campaigns have followed the same pattern: win their first tie but then lose the second, ousted on penalties by Sepsi OSK Sfântu Gheorghe 12 months ago.

So, can João Henriques be the man to lead them into a group stage for the very first time?

Valmiera meanwhile captured their very first Latvian title in 2022, currently down in third, more than 20 points adrift the leaders, over half way through the current Virslīga season.

So, this’ll be their Champions League debut, with Jurģis Kalns’ side hoping to lead the club to their very first win in UEFA competition.

To date, Valmiera have lost all three European ties they’ve ever played, ousted by Lech Poznań in 2020, Sūduva Marijampolė 12 months later and then Shkëndija a year ago.

Olimpija Ljubljana will very much be hoping that trend continues at Stadion Stožice.

On offer for the winners is a Champions League second qualifying round date with Ballkani or Ludogorets Razgrad, almost certainly the latter.

The losers drop into the Europa Conference League second qualifying round, where Tre Penne await.
