With the teams on the back of an unbeaten run in their leagues, we can expect a healthy match at Baku. And both teams will probably aim for that early lead in the game. With their recent form in the schedule, it is likely to see a couple of goals in total within ninety minutes.
Since they are meeting for the first time from the last decade, it is hard to tell a clear winner out of the two. But regarding their league quality, Azerbaijan is slightly better in competition than the Macedonian fixtures. Thus, Qarabag will probably be the favorites to win in the encounter.
