Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Qarabag and Zurich go head to head at Azersun Arena in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program in the Champions League qualifiers. Qarabag booked their place in round 2 in style, with the team rolling over Lech Poznan 5-1 on home soil, but they face a difficult task in the two-legged tie with Zurich. A man to watch in the home team will be Brazilian winger Kady, who scored a brace in the crushing of Lech.
Zurich, on the other hand, kicked off the new Swiss Super League campaign with an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Young Boys, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Baku, but all Rohner, Hornschuh, and Okita are pushing for a start.

Maksim Medvedev is an Azerbaijan international who plays for Qarabag as a right-back. Born in Baku, back then Soviet Union, on September 29, 1989, Medvedev is a first-team regular at the Azerbaijan national football team.
