Sabail vs Universitatea Craiova
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 11 July 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Bayil Stadionu (Baku).
Fans should gear up for an interesting match-up as two teams going through tough phases take on each other in an attempt to make a run into the Europa. The last season, Sabail may have finished third in the table, but they lagged behind the toppers by an enormous 25 points. Also, despite their top-tier positioning, the team failed to record a positive goal difference.
At present, even their home advantage seems to count to nothing, and they have been struggling to keep clean sheets at least once in a while.
Opponents Craiova are in an even more of a tough spot. They have registered just two wins in the last four months, and are in no shape to enter one of the most anticipated games of their season.
On top of that, they are burdened with the away handicap, and the fact that the hosts are going through a similar run of form is the only thing that gives these visitors strength to line up for this game.
