Slovan Bratislava host PAOK at the Tehelné pole in Bratislava on Thursday on matchday five of the UEFA Europa Conference League.

The sides are currently level on points in Group F with seven each thanks to an identical record of two wins, a draw and a defeat each.

The Slovakian side got their campaign off on a low note, losing the opening game 3-1 to Copenhagen before securing only a point against PAOK.

However, back-to-back wins over Lincoln Red Imps shifted momentum in their favor, with the side currently on a 10-game winning run.

PAOK, meanwhile, are looking to return to winning ways following a 2-1 loss to Copenhagen in their last European outing.

Slovan Bratislava vs PAOK Prediction

The sides are separated only by goal difference in the group and will look to go all out in their pursuit of three points.

But the home side have been on a good run of form lately, and that tilts the balance in their favor. We expect Slovan Bratislava to secure a narrow victory.

Prediction: Slovan Bratislava 2-1 PAOK
