Past Ružomberok v Everton meetings

Leighton Baines’s massively deflected goal 25 minutes from time at Goodison was enough to give Everton the edge going into the second leg.

That was the one and only time the two sides have played each other – Ruzomberok have never previously faced English competition.

Ružomberok v Everton Stats

Ruzomberok have little pedigree on the European stage and they finished third in Slovakia’s top tier last season.

July saw them edge out Slovenian outfit FK Vojvodina 3-2 on aggregate before causing another upset with a 2-1 aggregate triumph over Norwegian outfit Brann.

This is only their third ever campaign in European competition with this their first appearance in 11 seasons in European competition. Prior to this summer, they had recorded only two victories.

Everton have qualified for European competition for only the second time since 2010 thanks to their 7th-placed league finish last season.

Ružomberok v Everton Team News

Everton have four long-term injury absentees: Ross Barkley is out until late August after undergoing groin surgery, Seamus Coleman’s broke leg rules him out while Ramiro Funes Mori and Yannick Bolasie (knee) are both out until the new year.

Ronald Koeman believes new signings Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramirez, who both missed the first leg due to participation in the European Under-21 Championships, will be available.

Other Toffees new boys Cuco Martina, Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane and Davy Klaasen all featured last week.

The visitors have rising Macedonian Under-21 star Tihomir Kostadinov alongside defender Kristi Qose and forward Nermin Haskic, capped by Albania and Bosnia respectively.

Reason for Ružomberok v Everton bets

Everton are clear favourites with the bookmakers based on the gulf in size, stature and budgets between the two clubs although last week’s clash showed things may not be so straightforward as the markets suggest.

The Toffees are heavy favourites for the game but a victory will not be quite as straightforward as some of the odds available suggest. As the first leg showed, their players are far from full match fitness while Ruzomberok’s now have seven competitive fixtures this season under their belt and have the competitive fitness edge.

Of the last four European matches at Stadion MFK Ruzomberok, all have seen fewer than 2.5 goals and this one could be the same. Everton scoring one or two is likely but with Romelu Lukaku sold with no direct replacement, they may find rattling up big scores a problem.

Last week’s fixture showed two sides who could create chances but are not overly clinical up front and all indicators point towards a tight affair with the visitors edging through with a hard-fought win.
