Birmingham is the favorite on match against NK Maribor from Europa League
Birmingham vs NK Maribor Preview
Birmingham needed one point in the last game in the Europa League in Portugal against Braga, to keep their qualifying chances alive. They lost 1-0 and they are almost out of the competition. They have very litthe chances left and whoever will bet that Birmingham will qualify further, will make a lot of money.
Brugge will have to lose at home against Braga and Birmingham needs a win against NK Maribor at home. Let`s say that Birmingham will manage to win, without much trouble against NK Maribor, but it is very hard to believe that Brugge will lose at home against Braga, a team already qualified in the next stage of the competition. Even if Brugge and Birmingham will win, bringing Braga and Birmingham to 10 points each, Braga has better head-to-head results against Birmingham and they will go to the next phase.
Birmingham are clearely the favorites to win this game against NK Maribor. They will play at home, they still hope in a miracle, ans NK Maribor only managed to get a single point so far in this group. Most likely, Birmingham will win, but we think it will be a win only for the records, and Brugge and Braga will qualify together in the next phase.
