Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Against all odds, Atletico Madrid have yet to record a win in the Champions League group stages this season. Los Rojiblancos shared the spoils with the likes of Roma and Qarabag, while suffering a 2-1 loss to Chelsea at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. Diego Simeone’s troops face a must-win situation against Qarabag and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field. It is well known that Atletico Madrid are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we are positive that Antoine Griezmann and Co. are going to pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match. Qarabag did well to hold los Rojiblancos to a goalless draw at Baki Olimpiya Stadionu in their last group game, but we do not believe that they are capable of upsetting the star-studded La Liga side in Madrid. Taking everything into account, the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Vitolo):
Over the years Victor Machin Perez - Vitolo has established himself as one of Sevilla’s key players. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a forward as well, won his third consecutive Europa League trophy with los Sevillanos in 2016. Vitolo was born in Las Palmas on 2 November, 1989 and he played for his home-town club Las Palmas from 2010 to 2013. The Spanish footballer joined Sevilla on 28 June, 2013 and, no doubt, he made the right decision when he moved to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Vitolo played one game for Spain in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but he failed to make the final cut. However, he established himself as a first-team regular under Julen Lopetegui. Vitolo scored his first goal for La Furia Roja in an 8-0 win over Liechtenstein and he provided an assist for David Silva as well. He has a contract with Sevilla which expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Qarabag):
Over the years Qarabag have established themselves as one of the best teams in Azerbaijan. The club was founded in 1951 and they were playing under the name of Mehsul back then. Qarabag won their first trophy in the national championship in 1993, beating Khazar Sumgayit in the title game. In the 2015/2016 season they won their fourth domestic trophy, with the team finishing the season 22 points clear of second-placed Zira. Qarabag participated in the 2016/2017 Champions League qualifiers, but they were more than unfortunate to suffer a loss to Viktoria Plzen in the two-legged tie. The Azerbaijan outfit were beaten by the Czechs on away goal rule and, as a result, they made it to the Europa League playoffs. Thanks to a win over Goteborg in the double-header Qarabag made it to the knockout stages of the competition. The Horsemen play their home games at Azersun Arena and their home colours are black. Qarabag play their away games in white kits.
