Normally coach Aleksandar Rogic opts for a style of direct play, using, in most cases, counterattacks to create danger: Evgeny Kharin is a very fast and competent player in the transport of the ball to other people’s land. On the other hand, Roman Debelko is the best scorer of Levadia, with 16 goals scored. For this game the coach can count on all his players.

To reach this stage of the Europa League, the Irish won the second position of the 2017 championship. In this first game against Levadia, coach Stephen Kenny must keep the team aligned in 4-2-3-1, privileging the maintenance of ball possession and positional attacks: Adorján was the one responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process in the last game. On the other hand, the Irishman Patrick Hoban is still in great form, with 19 goals in 24 games played. Without great absences for this game, the visiting coach must act in maximum strength.
