Our football match prediction:
By beating the likes of Samtredia and Sheriff Qarabag set up a meeting with Copenhagen in the Champions League play-offs. The Danes are seen as favourites to win the double-header, but seeing that Stale Solbakken’s men have been playing below expectations at the start of the season, we predict that the hosts will grab something from Tuesday’s football match. Qarabag are tough to beat at home and it has to be noted that they managed to keep five clean sheets in previous six games in front of home fans in the Champions League qualifiers. Copenhagen eliminated Vardar in the third qualifying round, but considering that they were totally outplayed by the Macedonian side in Skopje in the first leg, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Qurban Qurbanov’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Jakub Rzezniczak):
The 29-year-old Polish defender Jakub Rzezniczak plays for Legia Warsaw as a centre-back. Long-serving soldier for the Polish giants has been with the club since 2004 and has amassed more than 230 league appearances, performing as club’s captain and one of the most reliable first-team members. Rzezniczak helped Legia to four Ekstraklasa titles, six Polish Cup trophies and one Polish Supercup. Following his 20 league appearances in the title-winning season for the Militarians, Jakub Rzezniczak struggled to keep his place in the team with his future with Legia put in serious doubt over the summer of 2016. Rzezniczak was heavily criticised, not only for his poor performances for the team, but only for fi equally poor attitude and social media activities which put a serious dent in his reputation and relationship with the Polish club. Determined to get back in favour with both the club and the fans, Rzezniczak vowed to be at his best behaviour in order to make a serious contribution in his team’s UEFA Champions League challenge.
