Zurich will take on Qarabag in the second leg for qualification quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League. First leg result: 2-3. The match will take place at Letzigrund Stadion in Zurich on Wednesday, July 27, 2012.
Zürich was the main attraction of last season. The giant of Swiss football is “FCZ”. They are the holder of a dozen league titles as well as a dozen national cups. It is important to remember that the club was recently expelled from the top division in their home country, Switzerland. Most importantly, Basel and Young Boys have dominated the top divisions of their native Switzerland in recent years. Then, suddenly, Zurich was in the top spot! But Andre Breitenreiter was the coach who made this possible. They bet on him in Hoffenheim. Franco Foda was appointed his replacement. He is remembered for his work with the Austrian team. He hasn’t been able do much so far. He started in the Super League with a humiliating score of 0-4 in Bern with the Young Boys and lost in Baku, though only minimally.
Qarabag was redeemed as a symbol for club football in Azerbaijan. Neftchi was awarded the title of national champion by the “Riders”. This was an exception, as they were able to return to 1st in 2021/2022 with confidence. Everyone is used to taking the project seriously on an international level. The team did make it to the Champions League main round once. They play in the “group” in the Europa League (last year – in Conference League). Gurbanov and his wards are now keen to reach the top of the main European Cup. After losing in Poznan, they have managed to beat Lech. Yes, the Swiss won at home. However, despite leading 2-0 and 3-1, they were beaten to 3-2 at the end, leaving a lot of intrigue between the two teams.
One can also recall a friendly match that took place at the start of 2015. It ended in a 1-1 draw. Zurich will try to win at home but his opponent is more experienced and seasoned. We suggest that you only bet on a neutral choice with a wager of “over 2.5 goals”.
Prediction: More than 2.5 goals.
