Team News: Qarabağ
Qarabağ boss Qurban Qurbanov does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this match thanks to a fully healthy group available to choose from.
Team News: Gabala
Thanks to a largely available squad, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Gabala boss Elmar Bakhshiyev to contend with. James (Meniscal Injury) won’t be playing here.
It looks to us that Qarabağ look set to create the chances to score more than once when they come up against Gabala, who might well find it a difficult task scoring a goal of their own.
Our selection here is for a pretty comfortable 2-0 victory for Qarabağ at the end of the 90 minutes.
