Odu Trencin v Hull

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Trencin have kept just three clean sheets in their last 17 matches
Expert verdict
Hull begin their first European adventure with a trip to Slovakia and it is one from which they should be able to claim their first victory. Steve Bruce looks to have moved well in the transfer market and the signings of attacking duo Robert Snodgrass and Tom Ince should give his increasingly dangerous team an extra dimension.
