All Araz-Naxçıvan v Zira match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Araz-Naxçıvan go into this fixture after a 2-2 Premyer Liqasi drawn result vs Səbail.
Araz-Naxçıvan have been conceding pretty frequently recently, but they have also done enough to hit the back of the net themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Araz-Naxçıvan have conceded in 5 of them while also managing to get on the scoresheet in 6 of those games.
Since a loss in their previous game against Neftçi in Premyer Liqasi competition, Zira and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The strike force from Zira have struggled for goals over their previous 6 games, contributing the unsatisfactory return of only 1. In those matches, Qartallar have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 4. While that may be of interest, we’ll just have to find out if that trend might be maintained in this next game.
Head to head
The previous league contest between the two was Premyer Liqasi match day 16 on 09/12/2023 which finished with the scoreline of Zira 0-0 Araz-Naxçıvan.
Team News: Araz-Naxçıvan
The Araz-Naxçıvan boss has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a completely healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Zira
Owing to an otherwise healthy group of players, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Zira gaffer to contend with. Filipe Pachtmann (unknown injury) misses out for this game.
We’re of the view that Zira might have a difficult job to score against this Araz-Naxçıvan side who will likely score & stay on top.
We’re therefore tipping a narrow 1-0 winning score for Araz-Naxçıvan at full-time.
