Qarabag will take on Olympiacos in round 4 of the UEFA Europa League group stage. The match will take place at Azersun Arena in Baku on Thursday, 13 October.
Qarabag has a long history of dominating Azerbaijani football. They are a serious European Cup force. It was again not possible for them to achieve their greatest achievement, which allowed them to be admitted to the Champions League main round. Transcaucasia’s representative reached the final round of qualification by knocking out Lech and Zurich. Viktoria Plzen still scored a goal, even though they were at home in the second half. Gurban Gurbanov’s wards began with a loss in the Europa League. They lost 1-2 to Freiburg, the strong Germans. The champion of Azerbaijan won a few important victories. They defeated Nantes at home, scoring 3-0. Then they repeated the result in Piraeus. Evidently,
Olympiccos did not begin the season as planned. The giant of recent years is not performing well in domestic competition and is far from his usual top positions. Everything came to an abrupt halt in the Champions League qualification against Maccabi. The Greeks lost at home to 0-4, after having played 1-1 in Piraeus. Although this could have resulted in a relegation to the Europa League, Apollo and Slovan (Bratislava), managed to win the penalty shootout. Even though they have made it into the group, “Legend”, still lose to everyone in a row. The chances of a draw seemed slimmer with Nantes absent in the first round. The goal of Gessam, in the third added minute, was decisive. However, this was followed by home defeats. With a score of 0-3, Qarabag and Freiburg won in Piraeus. With a score of 0-3, Qarabag and Freiburg won in Piraeus. It is clear that they will continue their fight with the French for 3rd.
The clubs met on Thursday for the first time. Oli was disappointed. Bookmakers don’t wait for the Greeks turn the tide. We recommend betting on Qarabag’s home win.
Prediction: Qarabag will win.
