Due to ongoing works on Tusanj stadium in Tuzla, Sloboda play their home matches in other towns. They played against Tuzla City in Gradacac, while now they will meet Borac in Banovici. This makes it even more difficult for the team, which doesn’t have particularly high quality in the squad this season.
Sloboda was fighting to avoid relegation until the very end last season. Fortunately for them, they stayed in the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but roster is even weaker now. Some important players like Dzenis Beganovic, Fedor Predragovic, Mladen Veselinovic and Josip Balic left, while new players were brought in from lower tier clubs. This season will be perhaps the most difficult for Sloboda in the last few years.
In the first two rounds, they collected only one point, without scoring a goal. Now, Sloboda will play against Borac who has championship ambitions. Luckily for Sloboda, Borac also didn’t start this season the way they wanted. For a good result in Banovici, Sloboda will have to play their best match so far.
Borac Banja Luka
During this summer, Borac brought in Nenad Lalatovic as new head coach. Serbian expert is highly respected in the region and club’s management believed that his signature would be enough for them to be the main contenders for the title. However, a lot of unexpected things have happened since then and it’s clear to everyone that road to the title will be much more difficult than previously expected.
Borac started 2022/2023 season with a 2:0 win against B36 Torshavn in the first round of the Conference League qualifying. However, in the next game Borac shockingly lost 3:1 in Faroe Islands and have been eliminated after penalty shooutout. All this affected chemistry inside locker room, so coach Lalatovic offered to resign twice. Board didn’t accept his resignation and Borac now looking better.
After only one point was collected in the first two rounds of the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Borac defeated Sloga Doboj and Igman in last two games. Since stadium in Banja Luka is also being renovated, Borac is playing home games on a neutral ground, just like Sloboda.
Sloboda and Borac played against each other three times last season. All three outcomes were seen once. Borac won the only match played in Banja Luka, while Sloboda achieved a triumph and a draw in Tuzla.
Alen Kurtalic (suspension) and Said Husejinovic (health problems) won’t play for Sloboda in this game. All players are available for Borac.
Sloboda vs. Borac Banja Luka Prediction
Last season, Fedor Predragovic was one of the best Sloboda players. Now, he is not even in Borac starting 11. This speaks how much better and powerful squad Borac has comparing to Sloboda. Given that this match will be played on a neutral pitch, Sloboda won’t have a real advantage. Just in case, instead of Borac to win, we decided to bet on -0.25 Asian handicap.
