In the first match of UEFA Europa League 1st Qualifying Round, Slovakia team Ruzomberok will host Bulgaria’s Levski Sofia.
Ruzomberok, one of the representatives of Slovakia, finished third in the Slovenian League last season. As we will remember in 2017, the Slovak representative who managed to go up to the 3rd qualifying round, was eliminated from the English team Everton in the 3rd round and bid farewell to the European League. Ruzomberok who could not show in the European League last season, managed to join the European League Qualification again after a one-year break.
Levski Sofia :
Levski Sofia is one of the oldest teams in the Bulgarian League. Levski Sofia, who finished third after Ludogorets and CSKA Sofia last season, played play off to join the European League and defeated Etar Veliko Tarnova 1-0 in the playoffs. Levksi Sofia, who separated his way with 9 players during the transfer period, managed to add Astana’s striker Rangelo Janga and Rapid Wien team scorer Deni Alar.
Levski Sofia is used to these qualifiers. They have added 2 important strikers to their squad and I think they are advantageous in the displacement of Ruzomberok. They return with a minimum draw.
