Team News: Səbail
Due to a fully healthy group to choose from, the Səbail manager Aftandil Hacıyev doesn’t have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match.
We’ve got the feeling that Neftçi have it within them to have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
In contrast, Səbail may well struggle getting goals but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be being dangerous at times, too.
We’re tipping a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Neftçi at the end of the 90 minutes.
