View all of the Qarabağ v Zira predictions, poll and stats below - plus the latest match odds.
Qarabağ, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 0-5 Premyer Liqasi victory versus Gabala.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that there has been much resilience in the Qarabağ rearguard. Atlılar have been miserly, with the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their past 6 clashes standing at 3.
Coming into this clash, Qarabağ haven't been defeated in their previous 4 home league matches.
Previously, Zira drew 0-0 in the Premyer Liqasi match with Sumgayit.
In 5 of the previous six clashes involving Zira, a relatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing sides. The overall average number of goals per game within that period comes to a mere 1.33, with the number of goals averaged by Qartallar equalling 0.17. That pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this match, though.
Going into this one, Zira haven’t won away from home in the past 7 league games.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings going back to 23/09/2019 reveals that these encounters have been pretty painful for Zira. They have not been able to get themselves any wins whatsoever whereas Qarabağ have maintained the edge over them, running out winners in 67 per cent of those ties.
An aggregate of 19 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 15 for Atlılar and 4 netted by Qartallar. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.17.
Team News: Qarabağ
There is just one fitness concern for the Qarabağ boss Qurban Qurbanov to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Filip Ozobic (Fibula Fracture) won’t play.
Team News: Zira
Thanks to a mainly full-strength squad, there is only the lone fitness issue for the Zira gaffer Samir Abbasov to be concerned about. Filipe Pachtmann (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
It’s pretty clear that Zira will have to play really well to put one past a Qarabağ team who have all the attributes to win pretty easily here.
We’re expecting a very comfortable 3-0 win for Qarabağ by the conclusion of the match.
