Gabala are the guests at Asco Arena on Monday for the Premyer Liqasi meeting with home side Səbail.
Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Səbail v Gabala can be seen below (plus the best game odds).
Səbail will be wanting a better result here following the 1-0 Premyer Liqasi loss in their previous game against Keşlə.
Səbail have really struggled up front in more recent games. Their sum of goals stands at just 2 vs opposing sides over the course of their previous 6 matches. In those meetings, Aslanlar have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 7.
Leading up to this clash, Səbail:
- are winless against Gabala in their last 3 league matches.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 4 home league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
Since a loss in their previous game against Qarabağ in Premyer Liqasi competition, Gabala and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The attacking players from Gabala have had real problems scoring goals in their past six encounters, contributing the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those fixtures, Dağ canavarı have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 12. We will have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Coming into this contest, Gabala are without an away win for the past 5 league matches.

Due to a completely healthy squad available to choose from, Gabala boss Elmar Bakhshiyev has no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash. Merab Gigauri is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our feeling is that Gabala and Səbail should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. Our tip is therefore for a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the match.
