FC Sheriff Preview

Qarabag’s defence of their Azerbaijani league title began in perfect fashion last time out, beating Neftci 3-1 away from home. Mahir Madatov scored twice inside the first half to give the visiting side a comfortable lead heading into the break. Dino Ndlovu then netted on the hour mark to seal the result, with only a late own goal from Rahid Əmirquliyev putting a slight blemish on the overall outcome of the game. Qarabag have come through two qualifying rounds to reach this stage of the competition, first seeing off Georgian outfit FC Samtredia 6-0 on aggregate before earning an impressive 2-1 win away to Moldovan side Sheriff after a goalless draw in the first leg to reach the playoff round. Despite having never reached the group stages of the Champions League before, Qarabag are actually unbeaten in their previous nine fixtures in the preliminary rounds of this competition, having only missed out last season on away goals.

FC Sheriff Team News

Qarabag have no injury concerns ahead of this meeting and will have a full squad to choose from.

Qarabag FK Preview

Defending Danish champions FC Copenhagen have made a woeful start to the Danish Super League season, with their frustrations furthered by a 1-1 draw at home to Horsens at the weekend. Stale Solbakken’s men fell behind in the first half, as Gambian defender Bubacarr Sanneh scored for the away side. With defeat less than fifteen minutes away, striker Federico Santander pulled his side level, but they were unable to find a winner which could raise them from 8th place in the table. After taking four points from their first two fixtures, the defending champions have since collected two from a possible nine, scoring just one goal in the process. It’s their home form which has proven to be the issue so far, drawing all three of their games at Telia Parken. Copenhagen have lost two of their four Champions League qualifiers before reaching the playoff round, coming out on top with 3-1 and 4-1 wins respectively over Zilina and Vardar.

Qarabag FK Team News

Copenhagen have two injury absentees for this fixture, with Erik Johansson (cruciate ligament) and Tom Hogli (thigh) both ruled out.
