Qarabag take on the visitors Nantes in the round 2 match of UEFA Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, September 15th at Azersun Arena (Baku).
Qarabag again secured the European Cup autumn - but did not reach the main round of the Champions League. The "Riders" once brought the Champions League to Baku. Although the wards of Gurban Gurbanov were able to show themselves well in this qualification. They coped with such strong opponents as the Polish Lech, Zurich and even Ferencvaros, and with Viktoria Plzen at the decisive stage, everything was decided by 1 goal: after 0-0 at home, the Azerbaijanis opened an score in the Czech Republic, but conceded twice in return. Having moved to the Europa League, Qarabag failed in the 1st match, conceding from Freiburg twice in the first quarter of an hour. The 1st goal turned out to be answered quite quickly, but then the score did not change for more than a half: it all ended 2-1 in favor of the Germans.

Nantes qualified for European competition thanks to their cup success. The "Canaries" - 8-time national champion. But in the last 2 decades, this team has done little at the level of the national championship. They even had to spend a lot of years in League 2, and the last draw brought only a modest 9th place. But at the same time, Antoine Comboire's wards managed to win the French Cup, for the 4th time in history. This made it possible to return to European competition, and bypassing the qualification. The middle peasant of Ligue 1 confirmed his right to play there, having managed to put the squeeze on the experienced and ambitious Olympiacos in the 1st round at home. Thanks to an own goal, the Greeks equalized the score at the beginning of the 2nd half. But Gessan on the 93rd managed to complete the final 2-1.
Qarabag became a regular in European cups when Nantes had already lost ground. So the French are visiting Baku for the first time in their history. Qarabag are an experienced fighter, besides, they always play at home with a special attitude. We recommend using a bet on their victory over Nantes, but with a safety net - a "zero" handicap.
Prediction for the match: Qarabag to win with 0.0 handicap.
