Ruzomberok vs Everton Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Everton will look to book their place in the Europa League play-offs when they travel to the Futbalovy stadion MFK Ruzomberok to take on Ruzomberok on Thursday night for the second leg of their Europa League third round qualifying tie. Ruzomberok come into this tie on the back of a comfortable 4-0 home win over Senica in the second round of the Fortuna liga at the weekend thanks to a brace from Dominik Kruzliak and two other goals from Nermin Haskic and Milos Lacny, although the latter missed a penalty kick as well. Meanwhile, Everton’s last competitive game was their 1-0 home win over Ruzomberok last week, with Leighton Baines scoring the winner soon after the hour mark. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Everton are huge favourites to win the game, although Ruzomberok have won three of their five Europa League home games. However, Everton should have enough to win, but I’m not expecting too many goals as the hosts managed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last six home games across all competitions, while Everton have only scored more than two goals in three of their last ten away games.

Ruzomberok Preview

Ruzomberok have endured a poor run of form recently, losing four of their last six games across all competitions. However, after losing 1-0 at the hands of Everton last week, Ruzomberok bounced back with a comfortable 4-0 home victory over Senica in the Fortuna liga at the weekend. This leaves them only in 5th in the Fortuna liga table with three points under their belts after losing 2-1 on the road at Z. Moravce in the opening round. Ruzomberok can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they have only lost twice in their last 14 home games across all competitions while winning eleven. Furthermore, the Slovaks have won three of their five Europa League home fixtures, conceding just once in the process. This has been Ruzomberok’s longest run in the Europa League as prior to this one, they were knocked out from the first round of the competition. This year, Ruzomberok managed to beat Vojvodina 3-2 on aggregate in the first round and followed this up with another 2-1 aggregate victory over Brann in the second round. Dominik Kruzliak is definitely a player to watch here as he managed to score the decisive goal against Brann last round and he also netted a brace in the Fortuna liga at the weekend.

Ruzomberok Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Ruzomberok ahead of this tie.

Everton Preview

On the contrary, Everton have enjoyed a decent pre-season campaign, winning two and drawing once in their three friendlies. The Toffees were expected to secure a big-margin victory last week, but in fact, they were very close to registering a frustrating draw. However, a second-half goal from Leighton Baines gave Everton a slender advantage in this tie. Everton’s record in the Europa League over the past few years has been decent as they have only lost two of their last nine games. Away from home, the Toffees were on a four-game unbeaten streak in the Europa League prior to their 5-2 trip to Dynamo Kiev in their most recent European trip back in 2015. Actually, that was their last appearance in the Europa League, being eliminated from the round of 16 following a 6-4 aggregate loss at the hands of Dynamo Kiev. Everton still need to bring in another striker in order to replace Romelu Lukaku, but they still have enough quality within their ranks to finish the job on Thursday night. Davy Klaassen is a player to watch here as he was the star performer last week, playing a vital part in Everton’s build-up play.

Everton Team News

Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Mori are all missing through injury ahead of this trip.
