The hosts to win the first leg

The hosts always have the advantage when in European football nights and Neftci is not a team to wish away in important fixtures like this. Neftci was participating in the UEFA Champions League qualification before being dumped out of the competition by Olympiacos a week ago. Therefore, we expect the hosts to bring high quality to this game given their competitiveness in UCL qualifiers where they bagged two victories and lost the last two games.

Draw at the break

Both teams participated in the UCL qualification fixtures but lost on goal aggregate in their last game. We expect both sides to bring top-quality into this fixture to make it highly competitive. A fixtur between teams that lost their chances in UCL  but hope for Europa League places will probably end in a draw at the break.

Under 2.5: Yes

After being dumped out of UCL qualification matches, Neftci and HJK meet in their first Europa League qualifiers. Another encounter in the competition will take place in mid-August. The first leg should be a tense fixture and while the hosts are the favourites to win here, we also don’t expect many goals on matchday.

Game Preview: Neftci and HJK Try their Luck in Europa League Qualifications after Failed UCL Campaign

A failed campaign in the Champions League Campaign has landed Azerbaijan’s Neftci Baku and Finland’s HJK in the Europa League qualification fixtures. Find out more in our game preview.

Neftci Baku

Neftci Baku played four games in the UCL qualifiers, during which they scored in two games and netted a total of four games. In the last two matches of the competition, the hosts lost in a similar fashion of 1-0 defeat. They come to this fixture, hoping to make it better for Neftci Baku fans. A home fixture against HJK in the first leg of Europa League qualifiers for new head coach Samir Abbasov should come with points. The manager has lost the only one game he has been in charge of since taking over Neftci in July 2021.

HJK

After a relentless campaign in the UCL qualifiers, Finland’s HJK travels for Azerbaijan to face Neftci in the first leg of the Europa League qualifiers. A big boost for the visitors is that head coach, Toni Koskela, is a proven winner who averages 2.08 points after 79 matches.
