Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Rijeka play host to Kolos at their Stadion HNK Rijeka in the opening match of their Europa League campaign. Over the years Rijeka have established themselves as one of the best teams in Croatia, and it is no surprise they are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s football match. The club chiefs added a number of young and talented footballers to the squad in the summer transfer window, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered.
Kolos Kovalivka, on the other hand, did well to shock Aris on their Europa League debut, but Rijeka are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Ukrainians than their previous rivals. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Antonio-Mirko Colak, who scored 20 goals in the national championship last term.
