As part of the second leg of the second round of the UEFA Conference League, Birkirkara will host Olimpija from Ljubljana. Another victory for the guests?
The Maltese championship has not started yet, so Birkirkara has to save itself with the help of friendly games in order to prepare for European competitions. So far, the European season is going well for Birkirkara, because it has already managed to overcome one qualifying round, knocking out La Fiorita from San Marino with a score of 2-1 on the sum of two meetings. As for the duel with Olimpia, Birkirkara lost in the first game, but in general the game was equal, and the only goal was scored near the end of the match, in the 78th minute.
But the Slovenian championship has already started, but after the European competitions started, so there was no opportunity for Olimpia to get in shape in official games. In any case, the results are still good. In the first match of the qualifying round of the Conference League, we managed to beat Birkirkara (1-0), and in the championship, in the framework of the 2nd round, there was a draw with Radomlje (1-1). Olimpia has a winless streak, but it is still modest - 3 matches.
