Karabakh” news

The hosts are in a great mood heading into the second match of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. Few expected a solid victory a week ago in Portugal, but Gurbanov’s team surprised even the most loyal fans. The Karabakh players did not give up in the fight and, at the first opportunity, delivered the ball into the final third of the field. It is worth noting the team’s efficiency in attack, because out of five shots on target, four were goals. Abdellah Zoubir showed his best side, becoming the best player of the week in the Europa League. The 32-year-old Frenchman scored two goals and provided an assist.

Let us note the rather good results of “Qarabag” in the current Europa League – four wins in seven matches. Gurbanov’s team scored eleven goals and conceded eleven. According to the team’s head coach, now it is important for his players not to fall into euphoria, because the fate of the two-game confrontation has not yet been decided.

Braga news

Jorge’s team does not please their fans with their performance and results. In the previous three matches there was only one victory and two crushing defeats. After a powerful slap in the face from Karabakh in the home game, the Braga players were able to pull themselves together and still put the finishing touches on the ninth team of the championship, Farense, 2:1. Three points allowed them to secure fourth place in the Primeira Liga. Jorge’s team dominated but created problems for themselves and had every chance of not winning again. However, in the 85th minute, 19-year-old midfielder Cher Ndour scored an extremely important goal.

Braga is performing inconsistently this season. Before the confrontation with Sporting, a five-game unbeaten streak continued, then they lost two games in a row. In Baku, the guests will have to try very hard to overcome the two-goal handicap.

Personal meetings

The teams played each other for the first time last week. In Braga, the Karabakh players brought the hosts to their knees – 4:2. We expect that the second head-to-head confrontation between the rivals will also be productive and unpredictable.

The guests have nowhere to retreat and to level the score in a two-game confrontation they must score at least twice. We expect that the team from Portugal will dominate from the first minutes and create problems for the opponent’s defense. Of course, it won’t be easy for Gurbanov’s wards and nothing will be decided. Forecast –Braga individual total over 1.5 (2.08).
