Dudelange are the champions and the cup winners in Luxemburg. The team has gained 62 points in 26 matches with 65-21 goal difference but failed the end of the season, recording 2 draws in two defeats in last four matches. The title was clinched only due to better goal difference comparing to Fola. Eight away matches in 2016 ended with five wins, two draws and one defeat. Luxembourgian side haven’t played a single sparring match with offseason.
Qarabag and Dudelange haven’t played a single head-to-head before. However, we can tell that the difference in level of two opponents is humongous. The hosts proved they can offer a battle to some solid European teams while Dudelange have problems in their domestic league. Today’s hosts should take confident win in upcoming match and guarantee the place in the next round after the home leg.
Prediction for the match: Qarabag to win with -1.5 Asian handicap.
