Budućnost form and stats

Budućnost's mission in Europa League last season failed in the 2nd qualifying round.

It's not happening yet for Budućnost on their First League travels, with zero points from their first 2 away games. Maybe today will be different? The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Budućnost have lost on their last two travels.

There might be some fixture complaints from Budućnost as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the First League match against Mladost Ljeskopolje (0-4). Before that, Budućnost secured a home win against Sutjeska with the score 1-0.

Budućnost lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.

It's early days yet, but Budućnost has scored 0 and conceded 6 goals from their travels in the league so far (2 games).

It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance.

The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
