There's another mismatch in store from the Europa League's qualifying rounds on Thursday, when Albanian side FK Kukesi host Bundesliga's Wolfsburg.

The hosts have already surpassed last season's achievement in this competition – crashing out in the R1 over two legs against Debreceni. They left it late but were 2-1 winners over Slavia Sofia last month to book their place here, to play a team who reached the last-16 last term.

Wolfsburg return to league play this weekend against Bayer Leverkusen so aren't exactly match sharp, but were 4-1 winners in the DFB-Pokal last Saturday.

Kukesi will relish the opportunity to test themselves and clash against top opposition, but will this task prove too much? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

FK Kukesi vs Wolfsburg Betting Tips

Patrick Friday Eze scored from the penalty spot, then his second-half replacement Godberg Cooper netted an 85th-minute winner to sink Slavia Sofia last month. After their scheduled season-opener against Tirana at the weekend was cancelled, Orges Shehi had extra time to prepare for a mammoth assignment in Wolfsburg.

These are precisely the sort of matches Kukesi want to be playing on a more regular basis, to truly test themselves in Europe. The issue? They always fall short in qualifying and don't get the opportunity.

With that chance here, it'll be interesting to see who Shehi selects in his starting eleven. They entertain a side that have four successive wins (including friendlies), after defeats to Shakhtar Donetsk and Eintracht Braunschweig last month.

Joao Victor had two goals and three key passes as Wolfsburg cruised to a routine DFB-Pokal win over Union Furstenwalde last weekend. The 26-year-old winger was their best player despite a comprehensive defeat in Ukraine last month and will be eager to continue that here.

I haven't even mentioned Yannick Gerhardt, Maximilian Arnold or captain Josuha Guilavogui – all of whom impressed last week too. Kukesi have their work cut out, that's for sure.

FK Kukesi vs Wolfsburg Correct Score Predictions

I'm predicting a Wolfsburg win. Kukesi will probably deliver a spirited effort but find themselves overwhelmed by the quality of their motivated opposition here.
