Team News: Qarabağ
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Qarabağ gaffer Gurban Gurbanov to be concerned about due to a largely intact squad. Abbas Hüseynov (Unknown Injury) misses out.
In our view, Atlılar look set to kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system for this game and select Andrey Lunev, Matheus Silva, Maksim Medvedev, Kevin Medina, Elvin Jafarquliyev, Julio Romao, Marko Jankovic, Leandro Andrade, Yassine Benzia, Abdellah Zoubir and Juninho.
Team News: Molde FK
Thanks to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the Molde FK boss Erling Moe does not have any fitness concerns to report coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that Molde FK might make use of a 3-5-2 lineup, giving starts to Jacob Karlstroem, Casper Oeyvann, Martin Bjoernbak, Anders Hagelskjaer, M. Fjoertoft Loevik, Emil Breivik, Martin Ellingsen, Markus Andre Kaasa, Kristoffer Haugen, Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Veton Berisha.
Our assessment is that Molde FK are likely to breach the defence of this Qarabağ side, but it may not quite be as many as they’ll concede.
Our tip is for a narrow 2-1 advantage for Qarabağ when all is said and done. Let’s see what happens here.
