Birkirkara vs Maribor match preview

Maribor came into this tie as overwhelming favourites to advance, but that is not how it turned out at Stadion Ljudski vrt a week ago.

Paul Mbong gave Birkirkara a shock lead in Slovenia, only for Ivan Brnić’s penalty to ensure it finished 1-1.

Nevertheless, Maribor must now win in Malta if they’re to remain in contention to reach a first UEFA group stage in five seasons.

Birkirkara meantime have won just four of their last 23 European ties, twice ousted by Maribor during this period, so it would be a major upset if they got through at Centenary Stadium.

Whoever does advance will take on FC Déifferdeng in the Europa Conference League second qualifying round.
