The Qarabağ manager Gurban Gurbanov will be grateful not to have any fitness worries at all coming into this match with a completely injury-free group available to select from.

Owing to an otherwise available group of players, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Zira manager to contend with. Filipe Pachtmann (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
It looks to us like Zira will need to play some great football to be getting goals against a Qarabağ outfit who look likely to get the goals that they need to set up a big win here.
We predict a very comprehensive 3-0 winning scoreline for Qarabağ at full-time.
