Partizan beat Flora 2-0 in the reverse

Flora host Partizan Belgrade at the Lilleküla Stadium in Tallinn on Thursday for matchday five of the UEFA Europa Conference League.

With only two points in the bag so far, they're out of the race to qualify for the last 16 of the competition, but are now aiming for a place in the preliminary knockout round.

Partizan are also in the race, sitting five points clear of the Estonian outfit in second place in Group B, although they have dropped five points against Gent from their last two outings.

A 1-0 defeat at home was followed by a 1-1 draw away and another setback would deal a mortal blow to their chances of winning the group.

Before this season, Flora and Partizan met in the qualifying stages of the 1999-2000 Champions League season, with Partizan progressing 10-1 on aggregate.

Partizan also secured a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture in September.
