Two sides itching to earn a Europa League group stage berth clash on Thursday afternoon, when Kazakhstan's Ordabasy Shymkent host Romania's FC Botosani.

It's the first qualifying round of three – followed by a playoff fixture – so there's work aplenty in store for the victor here. Sevilla won the 2019-20 Europa League last week, but the 2020-21 competition proper begins in late October.

Who will book their place in the next round, edging ever closer to a group stage place? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Ordabasy vs FC Botosani Betting Tips

If you look at recent form, there's an interesting trend for both sides – they've won each of their last two respective games. Ordabasy were narrow winners against Zhetysu Taldykorgan (3-2) and Kaspyi Aktau (1-0) in a four-day span.

As for their visitors, Botosani have had a near three-week break between fixtures: a 4-1 thrashing against Gaz Metan Medias, followed by a 3-2 away win over Arges Pitesti. The reason behind the delay, naturally, is the start of the new domestic season in Romania.

After finishing fourth last season, they qualified for Europa League football and are one of three top-flight sides involved from this round – U. Craiova and FCSB are the others. Just like the aforementioned pair, they recorded a narrow victory this past weekend.

The scoreline would have flattered them more, if not for a spirited showing by their hosts – Ionut Nastasie and a Gabriel Deac penalty late on. Considering they were dominant and conceded two goals like that, head coach Marius Croitoru will urge more concentration from his players against Ordabasy.

Ordabasy vs FC Botosani Correct Score Predictions

It's the first meeting between these two sides and in fairness, there's not much to go off.

Neither are enjoying particularly impressive domestic form and although Botosani have played more frequently since the COVID-19 pandemic, I'm not convinced in either corner here. I'll go safe with BTTS here.
