The Horsemen’s previous Conference League match came away from home against Cyprus outfit Omonia Nicosia, the match ended 4-1 in favour of the visitors. In their inaugural match at the tournament, they fought to a stalemate at home against Basel.

They are undefeated in the Azerbaijan Premier League with 5 wins and a draw. In the Conference League, they are on top of their group with 4 points to their tally.

Kairat in their opening match of the tournament managed a goalless draw against Omonia Nicosia at home and suffered a 4-2 loss against Basel on the road.

They are sitting third in the Kazakhstan Premier League 9 points behind league leaders Astana. Their stalemate in matchday 1 has earned them a point which puts them third in the group on goal difference.
