The 2020-21 UEFA Europa League qualification rounds continue this week, when Switzerland's Servette entertain Slovakia's MFK Ruzomberok on Thursday evening. The visitors hope to do better than last year – where they were eliminated at this stage over two legs against Levski Sofia. Servette, who finished fourth in the Swiss Super League last term, make their long-awaited return to European competition.

Both are eyeing a place in the group stages of Europe's elite competition, but there's a difficult route ahead. This is the first qualifying round of three – followed by a playoff round on October 1. So who will progress into next month's second qualifying round? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Servette vs MFK Ruzomberok Betting Tips

It's been a frustrating start to the 2020-21 campaign for Thursday's visitors. Since narrow victories in their two Europa League Playoffs matches against Zemplin Michalovce and Spartak Trnava last month, they're on a six-match winless run.

Two friendly defeats have been followed by a stumbling Superliga start – three draws and one loss in their first four matches. Their head coach Jan Haspra will be hoping his players can avoid a similar fate to last year, where they struggled until mid-September.

An away win over tough opposition in Servette would go a long way to boosting squad morale, but that's easier said than done. Servette finished their Super League campaign with just one win in their last seven matches. However, manager Alain Geiger will be hoping their three-week break was timely given the circumstances.

They returned with a 2-1 friendly win over relegated Neuchatel Xamax on Saturday and have multiple creative threats to watch out for here. Ivorian centre-forward Koro Kone has four goals and created two assists in his last six appearances. Will his inspired form continue here?

Servette vs MFK Ruzomberok Correct Score Predictions

Although their aforementioned form has been sketchy recently, I'm backing Servette to prevail here.

Ruzomberok haven't been particularly convincing in recent matches themselves, so I'd expect a tricky clash that the hosts edge over 90 minutes.
