Date: Wednesday, 18th October 2017

Atletico Madrid scored only a single goal in opening two Champions League fixtures and back-to-back clashes with Qarabag will give them the opportunity to change improve the record and the general situation ahead of the deciding matches with Roma and Chelsea.
Gurban Gurbanov’s men have done a massive job already by qualifying to the group phase of the most elite competition and they can only enjoy their time on the pitch against the likes of Roma, Atletico and Chelsea.
The team from Azerbaijan will likely lose all of their group stage ties, but they were pretty close to an upset two weeks ago when they narrowly lost the home encounter with Roma (1-2).
Los Colchoneros just can’t allow a failure here given they have only picked up a single point from previous two outings.
Diego Simeone will be desperate to see his men improving the poor goal-scoring form against a poor defensive side since Atleti scored no more than two goals in last three matches in all competitions.

Qarabag vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction
The gulf in quality between the two teams is just huge and we believe Atletico will come out with a demolishing victory here to boost up both goal difference and the confidence.
Qarabag conceded early goals to both Chelsea and Roma and we can’t see why the scenario would be different against Atletico Madrid.
