By Dean Carr

Qarabag welcome Chelsea to the Azərsun Arena on 22/11/17 as the away side look to secure their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Qarabag were 2-0 winners against Sumqayit at the weekend, while Chelsea hammered West Brom 4-0 at The Hawthorns. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chelsea cruised past Qarabag in their last meeting and I’m expecting a repeat performance this time around. Qarabag more than held their own in their back-to-back meetings with Atletico Madrid, but Chelsea should have too much for them on Wednesday.

Alvaro Morata to score anytime - 4/6

Qarabag FK Preview

Qarabag showed character in the face of adversity at the weekend, recovering from being reduced to 10 men to picking up a 2-0 win at home to 4th-placed Sumqayit to stay top of the Azerbaijan Premier League. Goalkeeper Ibrahim Sehic was dismissed on the half hour mark with the score still at 0-0, leaving them to play an hour with a single man deficit. If anything, the decision invigorated the Qarabag team, who responded by scoring a goal in each half as Richard Almeyda and Dino Ndlovu scored respectively to leave their side a point clear at the top of the league table with a game in hand on 2nd-placed Zira. The team will be full of confidence after two morale-boosting results in Europe, drawing twice in two successive meetings with two-time finalists Atletico Madrid. In particular, the second meeting was especially successful for Qarabag, who took the lead before half-time through Michel and, despite losing their lead and Pedro Henrique to a straight red card, were able to hold on for a 1-1 draw. Those results have left them with a chance of securing Europa League qualification, but will know that they will need to be far more competitive than they were in their previous meeting with Chelsea to have any chance of securing 3rd in the group.

Qarabag FK Team News

Pedro Henrique is suspended following his red card against Atletico Madrid, while Badavi Guseynov (foot) and Tarik Elyounoussi (knee) are both injury doubts.

Chelsea Preview

There was no let up from Antonio Conte’s Chelsea following the international break as the defending Premier League champions added to their victory over Manchester United with a 4-0 demolition of West Bromwich Albion away from home. Alvaro Morata continued his impressive start to the season by scoring the opening goal after 17 minutes, with Eden Hazard adding their second shortly after. Marcos Alonso found netted Chelsea’s third to kill the game seven minutes before the break, with Hazard sealing his double in the second half following an excellent pass from Cesc Fabregas. Conte was left furious with his team’s performance away to Roma in their last Champions League group games but have responded well to that particular defeat and still have the chance to secure qualification to the last 16 with a win here. Despite winning just two of their last seven Champions League games, Chelsea will feel confident of victory here following a 6-0 win over the Azerbaijan side in their last meeting at Stamford Bridge to get the ball rolling in their campaign. A draw or defeat could open the door for Atletico Madrid - should they win at home to Roma - to leapfrog them on matchday six of the competition when the two sides meet for the second time.

Chelsea Team News

Victor Moses (hamstring) and Michy Batshuayi (foot) are both set to miss out for Chelsea here.
