To get into the group stage of the Europa League, the Yuri Vernidub team has to pass the last hurdle. This will be very difficult, given the traditional strength of the German teams. Nevertheless, there are opportunities for a successful result of the confrontation in Zarya.
Dawn – RB Leipzig
Thursday 9:30 pm, Zaporozhye, Slavutych Arena. Arbitrator – Benoit Bastien (France). Live broadcast on TV channel 2 + 2.
After the enchanting passage of Braga, the team of Yuri Vernidub remains only one step ahead of winning a tour to the group round of the second placed trophy of the Old World. Opponent seems very difficult. Even if we consider that the Leipzig Republic Club is only nine (!) Years old, the representative of the Bundesliga seems a formidable force. It is true that the "bulls" are actually starting a new season just for themselves. The championship of Germany has not yet begun, and in the Cup of the country the Ralph Rangnick departments greeted the victory over the representative of the lower division Victoria Cologne (1: 3).
In contrast to the Germans, Dawn held five full fights in her own championship. The start for the team of Luhansk came out. Team Vernidub with eight scored points divides 4-5 places with Chernomorets. The result is very acceptable if we take into account not a very large staff maneuver with a view to employment on two fronts. Somehow coaching staff from the situation, and successfully overcoming the Portuguese barrier once again clearly demonstrated the infamous character of the & # 39; muzhiks & # 39 ;.
German guests in Zaporozhye go, if not with fear, then clearly with respectful respect to the Ukrainian club. Ralph Rangnik has a very good selection of artists. The Hungarian Peter Gulyasi is reliable in the goal, but special attention will be paid to the technical staff of Zarya on the opponent's line of attack. Danish forward Tanzanian descent Yussuf Poulsen recently played at the World Championships, and in combination with him is a candidate for the German national team Timo Werner. The 22-year-old striker may perhaps become a star of European football. At least, in his homeland, it is predicted that he has such a future. Monolithic viewer, Swede Emil Forsberg and the Portuguese Bruma, as well as the Slovenian central midfielder Kevin Kampl.
In the first game, Dawn's main task will not be as simple as possible to make a scorer reserve before leaving for Germany, but also to keep their own ports intact. The task is, to say the least, not the simplest. At this stage, however, moderately opposed opponents do not happen. Again, not the favorite of the confrontation, the Luganskers have an excellent chance to show their will power again. The other from the Vernadub team is simply not expected.
