Səbail VS CS U Craiova

Səbail and CS U Craiova face at Bayıl Arena, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Səbail presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Səbail

The home team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of using the home advantage to get a positive result. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 13 goals scored and 18 conceded. They come to this match after a home loss against Makedonija GjP by (0‑1). Səbail has won 2, tied 3 and lost 5 of the last 10 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.

The Sabail club arrives at this first phase of the Europa League derived from the conquest of the 3rd place in the Championship of Azerbaijan 2018/2019, competition that has colored the Qarabag like champion. Note that the home team lost to Makedonija GjP, 0-1, in a friendly game. Even playing inside doors, coach Aftandil Hadzhiyev should opt for a more cautious strategy, attacking in a more controlled way, thus maintaining the organization of his block. The 10 Agabala Rmazonov sweater was one of Sabail's great highlights last season with 8 cleared goals. For this game the coach can not rely on Oleksandr Rybka, a player recovering from injury.

Confirmed Lineup: D. Bozhinovski, Erico, E. Yunuszadə, Ü. Abbasov, Ş. Rəhimov, B. Hamdi, M. Essien, E. Cociuc, R. Əmirquliyev, M. Abbasov, A. Ramazanov.

Analysis of CS U Craiova

The team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 16 conceded. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got a home tie against Legia Warszawa by (3‑3). In the last 10 away matches CS U Craiova has won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches.

Craiova managed to make their mark in this first qualifying round for the Europa League due to the 4th position of the Romanian Championship. We remember that the visitors arrive at this match with a tie, to 3-3, against the Légia, in a game that gave to test the qualities of the equipment. Even out of doors, coach Corneliu Papura should benefit from keeping possession and organized bouts, especially through the right aisle: Alexandru Ionita, a player loaned by Cluj, is very fast and strong in the offensive transition. For this game the coach can count on all the players at his disposal.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Pigliacelli, N. Bancu, S. Acka, R. Kelić, I. Martic, A. Mateiu, K. Qaka, C. Bărbuţ, B. Vătăjelu, A. Ivanov, M. Roman.

Betting suggestion:

The Craiova team arrives at this very motivated tie to move on to the next stage, even if it has to act first out of doors. We do not believe that Sabail can give a good response, even at home, against the Romanians, since the opponent has a squad of great quality offensive. Thus, Craiova have all the conditions to win a victory in this first encounter, however, and as it acts in unknown soil, we will protect ourselves in a possible tie.
