Qarabağ will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-6 Premyer Liqasi triumph vs Neftçi.
Matches featuring Qarabağ have proved to be entertaining encounters of late with a lot of goalmouth action expected. Over their past half dozen clashes, a grand total of 20 goals have gone in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 13 of those being chalked up by Atlılar.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Səbail in Premyer Liqasi action, Sumgayit and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Sumgayit have been dangerous up front of late, scoring 8 times in their last 6 matches. While their manager Aykhan Abbasov will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Sumgayit can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same games. That sort of pattern might not be sustained into this next game, of course.
Head to head
Looking over their past head-to-head clashes stretching back to 09/02/2019 shows that Qarabağ have won 4 of these games & Sumgayit 1, with the tally of drawn games being 1.
An aggregate of 18 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 14 of them for Atlılar and 4 for Sumgayit. That’s an average goals per game of 3.

Team News: Sumgayit
With a completely healthy squad available for selection, Sumgayit boss Aykhan Abbasov does not have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash.
It looks to us that Qarabağ have it within them to have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the other end, Sumgayit may well struggle to find the back of the net but do we see them pulling one back during this clash, too.
We’re predicting a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for Qarabağ at the end of the 90 minutes.
