Valmiera vs Olimpija Ljubljana match preview

Having won the first leg at home, can Olimpija Ljubljana finish the job in Latvia?

Eight nights ago, Mustafa Nukić and Rui Pedro were on target in a 2-1 home victory at Stadion Stožice.

However, Meissa Diop’s goal, coming just two minutes from time in the Slovenian capital, does mean this tie is in the balance.

Olimpija Ljubljana are aiming to reach a UEFA group stage for the very first time, having fallen in the play-off round in 2018, not winning multiple ties in the same seasons since then.

Having won at home, João Henriques’s team need just a point on the road to advance.

Valmiera meanwhile have never won a European tie, losing all three and conceding 12 goals across six matches, with that streak unlikely to chance at Jāņa Daliņa stadions.

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