Ballkani vs Larne match preview

After both were ousted in Champions League qualifying last mid-week, who will get their European campaign back on track in Pristina?

Larne made their debut in UEFA competition as recently as 2021, before winning a maiden Northern Irish title earlier this year.

Tiernan Lynch’s team were very competitive against HJK in the first qualifying round, beaten 1-0 in Helsinki before winning 2-1 at home, with Joe Thomson’s late goal forcing extra time.

However, Shaun Want’s 97th minute own goal in Belfast ended Larne’s Champions League dreams.

Ballkani meantime beat Ludogorets 2-0 in their first leg tie, a massive shock, but they could not complete the job in Razgrad, smashed 4-0 last Wednesday.

The Kosovar champions became the first team from Kosovo to reach a UEFA group stage just last season, getting there on debut, so Ilir Daja’s side come into this clash as favourites.

The winners of this tie will take on Lincoln Red Imps in the UEFA Europa Conference League third qualifying round.
