Qarabag will take on Nantes. The match will take place at Azersun Arena in Baku on Thursday, September 15.
Qarabag secured the European Cup Autumn again – but didn’t reach the main round in the Champions League. Baku was once home to the Champions League by the “Riders”. The Gurban Gurbanov wards were able to perform well in this qualification. They faced strong opposition from the Polish Lech and Zurich, as well as Ferencvaros. With Viktoria Plzen at crucial stage, it was decided by one goal. After 0-0 at home the Azerbaijanis scored in the Czech Republic but were defeated twice. Qarabag, who had moved to the Europa League failed in the first match. Qarabag conceded twice from Freiburg in the first quarter hour. Although the 1st goal was answered quickly, the score remained the same for the rest of the match: 2-1 to the Germans.
Paris qualified for European competition due to their cup success. The “Canaries”, 8-time national champion. This team has not been able to compete at the national championship level for the past two decades. Even though they spent a lot of time in League 2, the last draw only brought them a mere 9th place. Antoine Comboire’s wards won the French Cup for the fourth time in their history. This allowed for a return to European competition and an exemption from the qualification. After having managed to squeeze the Olympiacos, an experienced and ambitious middle peasant from Ligue 1, he was able to confirm his right to play in Europe. The score was even at halftime thanks to an own goal by the Greeks. Gessan, on the 93rd, managed to complete the final 2:2.
Qarabag was a regular participant in European cups after Nantes had lost ground. The French will be visiting Baku for their first time in history. Qarabag is an experienced fighter and they also have a special attitude. We recommend placing a wager on Qarabag’s victory over Nantes with a safety net, i.e. a “zero handicap”.
Prediction: Qarabag will win with 0.0 handicap
