Botoşani form and stats

Botoşani have not come this way in the Europa League without some hard work on the way, more precisely defeating Ordabasy.

Botoşani have collected 3 points from their Liga 1 home games so far after 1-0-0. Two home wins in a row for Botoşani bring valid hopes of a third.

Botoşani drew their last game, 1-1 away at Dinamo Bucuresti. Before that, Botoşani had a Liga 1 home game versus CSM Iasi which ended with a victory 4-0.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Botoşani have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eleven games) they have won five times, drawn five and lost one.

Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Academica Clinceni are coming to town in three days.

Botoşani has scored 4 goals so far and conceded 0 goals from 1 home game. These are numbers from the league only.

Skendija 79 form and stats

The traveling awayteam has defeated Sumqayt in order to reach 2nd Qualifying Round of Europa League. Last season their Europa League adventure ended in the 2nd qualifying round.

Skendija 79 are happy with their away performances in the First League so far, having secured two victories and one draw from their first three travels. Skendija has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.

It's the second away game in a row for Skendija, but there's smiles all around after the 3-0 victory versus Belasica in the First League last time out. Preceding that match was the 1-1 draw at home vs Borec.

We have checked recent matches where Skendija have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those one game were one victory, zero draws and zero defeats.

A new game in only three days for Skendija 79, the First League home match versus Akademija Pandev. Busy days.

The Skendija 79 manager E. Gjoka has got the team scoring on the road, with 6 away goals in 3 league matches. It's not easy to score on Skendija as they have only conceded 2 goals from these away games.

The UEFA Europa League, abbreviated as UEL and commonly referred to as just the Europa League, is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA. It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance. Teams qualify through their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. Some teams qualify from the Champions League; more precisely the teams who are knocked out in the playoff qualifying round and the third-place finishers of the group stage. The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
