First leg score: First leg score: Wolfsberger AC 0-0 Gżira United
Gżira United vs Wolfsberger AC
Wolfsberger AC to win and both teams to score NO- 17/10!
Following last Wednesday night’s goalless draw at Wörthersee Stadion, it’s winner takes all in Malta.
Wolfsberger AC certainly came into this tie as favourites but, having failed to win in Klagenfurt, this is less so the case now.
The Austrian side qualified for back-to-back Europa League group stages in 2019 and 2020.
However, given that Wolfsberger have only won three of their last nine European matches outside of Austria, Robin Dutt’s team still have plenty of work to do.
Gżira United meanwhile, by beating Atlètic Club d’Escaldes and Radnički Niš, have already reached the third qualifying round for the first time ever.
The latter was a massive upset, knocking out the Serbian side on penalties after a 5-5 draw on aggregate.
The Maroons do have form for this though, winning 3-1 In Croatia to eliminate Hajduk Split three years ago.
However, Gżira United are actually winless in seven European home matches, a statistic that’ll need to change if they’re to get through this one.
Whoever does prevail in Ta’ Qali will take on, almost certainly, Molde in the Europa Conference League play-off round; they hammered Kisvárda 3-0 in their first leg.
