Team News: Sabah
Owing to a completely injury-free group available for selection, Sabah boss Rövşän Babayev doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this game. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Filip Ivanovic, Ramil Sheydaev, Bahlul Mustafazada, Coshqun Diniyev and Tamkin Khalilzada.
We feel that over the course of the game, Sabah will have to work hard as a team to find the net against this Sumgayit team who we reckon will score one, at least.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 1-0 winning score for Sumgayit after 90 minutes.
It should be a good one.
