Qarabag FK vs Atletico Madrid Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Atletico Madrid will travel to the Baki Olimpiya Stadionu to take on Qarabag on Wednesday afternoon, with both teams looking for their first Champions League victory of the season. Qarabag lost 1-2 at home against Roma last time out, with their consolation goal being scored by Pedro Henrique in the 28th minute. Atletico Madrid have also suffered a narrow 1-2 defeat against Chelsea last time out, despite Antoine Griezmann gave them the lead at halftime. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both sides are in dire need of a victory here, but it’s obvious that Atletico Madrid are favourites to grab all three points in this one. I don’t think that the Spaniards will have an easy trip as they have struggled away from home in the Champions League recently, while Qarabag have only lost once in ten home games in the competition. I’m expecting a tight game with few goals scored as both teams looked very well-organized at the back over the past few months.

Qarabag FK Preview

The debutants Qarabag kicked off their Champions League group stage adventure with back-to-back defeats at the hands of Chelsea and Roma, conceding eight goals in this term. The truth is that Qarabag’s chances of reaching the first knockout stage of the competition were very slim as they have been drawn alongside Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and Roma. As predicted, the Azeri side find themselves at the bottom of the group C table with no points to their name after two rounds. The only good news is that Qarabag were on a nine-game unbeaten home streak in the Champions League prior to their 1-2 loss against Roma in their most recent home fixture in the competition. Domestically, Qarabag have enjoyed a perfect start to the Azeri Premier League campaign, winning six and drawing once in the opening seven league fixtures. They sit comfortably at the top of the table with 19 points to their name, scoring 14 goals and conceding just three in seven rounds. At home, Qarabag have only lost to Roma in their last nine games across all competitions, while keeping six clean sheets. Their 20-year-old striker Mahir Madatov is the Azeri Premier League’s topscorer at the moment with 5 goals under his belt, while Pedro Henrique has scored Qarabag’s only goal in the Champions League so far.

Qarabag FK Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Qarabag ahead of this game.

Atletico Madrid Preview

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, reached the Champions League Semi-finals last term, but this season has not gone to plan at all. Los Colchoneros only drew nil-nil on the road at Roma on the opening round and then suffered a narrow 1-2 home loss against Chelsea on matchday two. Atletico have endured a disappointing run of form recently, registering two draws and one defeat in their most recent three games across all competitions. They are yet to lose after eight La Liga fixtures, but they are already six points adrift of the current leaders Barcelona. The good news is that Atletico Madrid are undefeated in their last twelve away games across all competitions since a 3-0 defeat at Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League Semi-finals tie last season. Their recent away record in the Champions League has let them down, as Atletico Madrid have only won once in their last five away games. Yannick Carrasco has been Atletico Madrid’s most dangerous player in front of goal in the early part of their La Liga campaign, as the 24-year-old midfielder is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with three goals and three assists in eight league appearances. Antoine Griezmann is on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or, but the Frenchman has only managed to score three goals across all competitions so far this season.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Augusto Fernandez and Sime Vrsaljko are both doubts ahead of this trip.
