Sumgayit will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 3-0 Premyer Liqasi success vs Səbail.
Aykhan Abbasov's Sumgayit have scored 8 times over their prior six outings. At the other end, the number of goals that have been scored against them in that time amounts to 11.
Going into this one, Sumgayit have left without a victory over Qarabağ in their last 3 matches in the league.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Neftçi in Premyer Liqasi competition, Qarabağ will be aiming to make amends here.
In as many as 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Qarabağ, at least three goals have gone in. The average goals scored per game within that spell is 3.33, with the number of goals averaged by Qarabağ coming out as 1.83.
Taking a look at their past results, Qarabağ:
- have not registered a win against Sumgayit when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 10 league matches away from home. Travelling very well.

Team News: Sumgayit
Sumgayit boss Aykhan Abbasov does not have any fitness worries at all before this match with a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Qarabağ
Due to a completely injury-free group ready to go, Qarabağ boss Qurban Qurbanov has no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash. Kevin Medina is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our feeling is that Qarabağ should see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
However, Sumgayit will be up against it getting goals, although we do see them hitting back at some stage here.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 1-3 margin for Qarabağ after 90 minutes.
