Partizan Belgrade vs Ħamrun Spartans
Partizan to win, over 2.5 goals and both teams to score NO- 21/10!
Partizan come into this tie as overwhelming favourites, so will be looking to establish an unassailable first leg lead in Belgrade.
The Serbian giants began their latest continental adventure in the Europa League third qualifying round.
However, there, they were dumped out by AEK Larnaca, losing 2-1 in Cyprus before then only drawing 2-2 at home.
Gordan Petrić's team do now get a second chance in this competition, but need to grasp it with both hands.
Will the Black-Whites remain on track for a 13th UEFA group stage since 2003, and a third in four seasons?
Ħamrun Spartans meantime have already enjoyed an historic European campaign, so can they cap it all off with a massive shock?
The Maltese side began on 7 July in the first qualifying round, but have seen off Alashkert, Velež Mostar and Levski Sofia, all an upset to varying degrees.
In the last round, they were beaten 1-0 in Ta’ Qali, but then won 2-1 in Bulgaria, thanks to Ryan Camenzuli’s 92nd minute equaliser, forcing extra time and subsequently penalties.
Vinícius Freitas, Luke Montebello, Matthew Guillaumier and Matteo Fedele all converted from 12 yards as Ħamrun Spartans completed yet another shock.
For context, before this season, the Tas-Sikkina had won just one of nine European ties, this coming against Ballymena United in 1984.
Now, if they could just win one more, Ħamrun Spartans would become Malta’s first-ever representatives in a UEFA group stage.
Will the underdogs avoid a heavy defeat at Partizan Stadium?
