Qarabag vs Sivasspor
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 26 November 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Tofiq Bahramov Stadium.
The Braves are currently placed third in the table, and have just three points against their name. Meanwhile, Villarreal are at the top of the table with nine points (three wins from three games), and Maccabi Tel Aviv are in the second spot with six points.
However, the top two teams are taking on each other this same game week, and the in-form Villarreal are expected to win. As such, this gives an opportunity for Riza Calimbay’s men to play catch up. Should they secure a win at the Tofiq Bahramov Stadium – they would be level on points with Tel Aviv.
And chances for this become even higher when it’s noted that the Horsemen have a 100% losing record, and they also have conceded the most number of goals in the competition.
On top of that, they also have a 100% losing record in h2h encounters as well.
Likely, expect Sivasspor to emerge victorious this Thursday.
Qarabag vs Sivasspor: Head-to-head (h2h)

Qarabag vs Sivasspor: Prediction
The Braves recorded a 2-0 win at home the last game week in the Europa, and then the opponents were these same Horsemen.
Going on, Calimbay’s men are from the Turkish top flight, which is miles ahead than that of their Azerbaijani counterparts.
In addition, Gurbanov’s men are placed dead last in the table, and have conceded the most number of goals so far. They have also lost all their games in the tournament so far, and all through their campaign, they have scored a total of just one goal.
Furthermore, the Braves have found the back of the net in nine of their previous eleven overall match-ups, and they have also scored two or more goals in four of their preceding six road trips.
This Thursday, with a ticket to the Round of 16 on the line, expect Sivasspor to deliver a definite win.
