The return match of the play-off Europa League Dila Gori and the Rapid Vienna will be held tonight at 19:00.
If Salzburg humbled Zalgiris even at home, scoring 5 goals in flow and ensuring their qualification in the Europa League, not the same can be said of the second team the importance of Austria present in this phase. It’s about Rapid Vienna, who last week won a victory at minimum lead, 1-0 against Dila Gori from. Georgians, therefore, reason to hope ahead of the return match. After all, if a team from Azerbaijan was qualified last season in the Europa League, he would not do it now one of Georgia? Theoretically it would be likely, but practically hard. In game a week ago, the Austrians have dominated copiously, with a clear 70%, sending six shots on goal, compared to only two of the Georgians.
But last weekend, Rapid Vienna lost at home, score 0-1, in front of Grodig, given that the group coached by Zoran Barisic used almost the same formation as in the match against Georgia, only two players were replaced in 11 their home. Instead, although playing at home against Rapid Vienna clash of Gori Dile previous weekend was postponed.
In the previous edition of the Europa League Georgians were all eliminated in the play-off, by the Portuguese from Maritimo. Then they lost the first leg away all 0: 1 in return Portuguese imposing 2-0.
Austrian striker, American Terrence Boyd will play Thursday against Georgians, although two weeks ago accused sore shoulder. Even if the risk to go directly on the operating table after the match American wants at any price to evolve, evidence that Boyd, along with other players of greens and white, really want to accede in the Europa League.
We also have a representative in this match, in the person of Cristi Balaj, the referee meeting, which was at the 37th or European match.
