Partizani vs Qarabag
Champions League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Selman Stërmasi Stadium (Tirana).
The home side picked up the Albanian Championship last season in style with a commanding eleven point lead over the runners-up and have earned themselves the opportunity to stamp their authority across Europe this year.
The squad scored forty-five goals in their previous league campaign and were the team to concede the least number of goals, at twenty-two. However their stellar run dampened in the closing games, and they failed to pick up a win in the last three.
Their final game of the season against Luftetari Gjirokastra, which was away from home, saw them pick up just a point after the scores finished 1-1 at the end of the ninety minutes.
Their counterparts for Wednesday, Partizani, fared well in their respective league as well and finished at the helm of the table with an eight-point advantage. Like their foes, they too concluded their season with the least number of goals, than any other side, in the back of their net.
Considering that they missed out on the chance to lift the 2018-2019 Azerbaijan Cup, after losing out on the away goals rule in the semi-final, the team will be keen to have a much better cup run across Europe this year.
The winners, at the end of the two legs, will set up a quarterfinal meeting with the team that comes out on top in the game between Dundalk and Riga FC.

The teams have never previously played each other on any occasion.
Partizani vs Qarabag Prediction
The visitors are certainly the favorites to come out on top when the two teams meet each other for the first time on Wednesday.
The away side had their hearts broken when they failed to make it through to the finals of the Azerbaijan Cup on the away goals rule. The squad will certainly be wary of the importance of picking up goals on the road, and so you can count on them to definitely find the back of the net this week.
The hosts certainly know their way around in the final third as well and scored a total of thirty goals on home soil last season.
We can certainly bet on both teams to score, with the away team likely to carry the win and a goal advantage into the return leg.
