Paulo Sousa will be fairly satisfied with the start his team had in this new season. Fiorentina kicked-off their competitive campaign with a 2-1 defeat at Turin against Juventus in the Serie A opener. And they are unbeaten in 5 matches since then, with 2 wins and 3 draws. Both their wins have come at home, while they are yet to win a match on the road this season. Having watched the team in all their matches so far this season, the Viola must be doing better especially in front of goal.

The Azerbaijan Premier League Champions are having a decent run in their domestic league after 6 matches into the new season. They had won 4 and drawn and lost 1 each so far. Coming back to Europe, their competitive season started in the second round qualifiers of the Champions League. An aggregate loss to Viktoria Plzen on away goal rule dropped them to the play-off round of the Europa League. A win against IFK Goteborg booked them a place in the group stages for the second consecutive season. They finished last in their Europa League group last season. They will expecting a much better outing this term, for that they must improve their away form.

Fiorentina vs Qarabag: Head-to-Head Stats

The Thursday’s fixture will be the first match between AFC Fiorentina and Qarabag in a UEFA competition.

Qarabag had met an Italian opposition in Inter Milan during the group stage of 2014/15 Europa League. They lost the first leg in Milan 2-0 and managed to earn a 0-0 draw in the return leg at home.

Fiorentina vs Qarabag: Prediction

Fiorentina are playing some wonderful football at the moment. But their attack is a big worry as they are solely responsible for their three drawn matches this season. While Qarabag is not a side renowned for exceptional performance in away matches on a European night. They have failed to win in all of their 3 matches in the UEFA qualifiers this season. If Fiorentina improve their finishing, they will win this fairly easy.

The Viola have kept a clean sheet in each of their three home matches this season. Also 8 of their last 10 competitive matches at home produced under 2.5 goals. This is another perfect option for this match.

Full Time Correct Score: Fiorentina 2-0 Qarabag at 11/2 (6.50).
