Partizani Tirana vs FK Qarabag Match Preview
Qarabag travel to Tirana as they open the new campaign with a 1st Qualifying Round Champions League clash against Partizani, coming into the match after an unpredictable pre-season run and just one win in four outings since late June. They have finished the campaign strong, though, and will now hope to put on a more competitive display.
Indeed, Atilar have seen a 2-0 loss at Ludogorets and draws against Universitatea Craiova (0-0) as well as Viktoria Plzen (2-2), only beating Ufa (2-1) along the way. They’ve started scoring more goals lately, though, and Qurban Qurbanov will want his men to build on the streak at Stadiumi Selman Stermasi.
Partizani have long bagged the title in Albanian Super Liga when their struggles started, as they finished the season with a loss Teuta Durres (2-0) and two consecutive draws – ending 11 points in the clear and now taking on their second Champions League Qualifiers attempt ever.
Franco Lerda’s men have played just two friendlies in a short break they’ve had, as they suffered a 2-1 loss at Mura and beat Cracovia (0-1) in late June and early July, respectively. This could obviously mean they’ll lack the competitive edge and this could turn into an unconventional contest on their end.
We will now back Qarabag to capitalize and prove their worth in Tirana already, as we stick with them to snatch an advantage despite a tough challenge and a narrow contest in the making. Away win comes at 19/20 with Coral and looks the best value in the market.
Still, we expect Partizani to find the net and capitalize on the visitors’ struggles to keep it together at the back lately, as we now also back a Yes on Both teams to score at 11/10 with bet365. We’ve seen them regularly scoring goals at this ground and this should leave a lot to play for in the second leg.
