Sheriff Tiraspol to overturn results

Sheriff Tiraspol is aiming to overturn the result from the first leg as they meet SSC Farul once again for their second leg. Their first leg ended with a 1-0 win for Farul, giving them the advantage and more confidence in this series. Farul is looking to build from that advantage to inch closer to the Champions League group stage for the first time. However, Sheriff will not let this happen as they are aiming to at least overturn the result for the next round. Experience is Sheriff‘s biggest advantage coming into this game as they are no longer new when it comes to the qualifiers. The only meeting between these two teams was during the first leg. This meeting between Sheriff and Farul will be on July 19, 2023, at 1:00 AM (GMT+8), as Sheriff play as hosts.

Sheriff Tiraspol

Champions League Qualifiers: Sheriff Tiraspol

Sheriff is no longer a stranger when it comes to the qualifiers, as they participated in all the qualifiers in the last 20 seasons. However, although they are no stranger in the qualifiers, not all their qualifying game is a success. Additionally, they are at the disadvantaged coming into this game, as they need to overturn a one-goal deficit. Before that loss, this squad is actually unbeaten in their last 13 matches, where they were able to win 10. Despite these records, what can give Sheriff the confidence is the fact that they are doing well at home. In fact, they are unbeaten in their last 10 matches at home across all competitions. Additionally, from those 10 matches, eight of those are all coming from wins, so they could make use of their home crowd advantage.

Sheriff is without Rasheed Akanbi, as he still continues to recover from an injury he suffered late last season. Moreover, considering Kostas Apostolakis’ underwhelming performance in the first leg, he might be replaced here.

SSC Farul

Champions League Qualifiers: SSC Farul

Farul is coming into this game with one goal in mind, and that is to protect their lead to advance in the next round. They currently hold a 1-0 advantage against Sheriff, but that lead is not a safe lead, considering how talented their opponent is. It was a strike during the 54th minute from David Kiki that helped Farul get the first leg win. Moreover, unlike Sheriff, this is just the second time that Farul will play in the qualifiers. During the first time they qualified, they lost that series by an aggregate of 4-1, despite a 1-0 win. That made them eager to finally build from their first leg win, and qualify to the next round. Now that they know that a one-goal lead is not a safe lead, expect that this team will go all-out.

Coming into this match, Farul is expected to retain the same squad that gave them the win during the first leg.
