Our prediction for this Europa League match:
F91 Dudelange did remarkably well to beat the odds and pick up all three points from their Europa League opener against APOEL at Neo GSP. The Luxembourg outfit continue to impress in European competitions and seeing that their next rivals Qarabag experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 home loss to Sevilla, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
A man to watch in the home side will be Daniel Sinani, who scored a brace in the 4-3 win over APOEL. The Azeri, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travelers and you should bear in mind that they suffered five defeats in previous six away games in the Europa League. When the two teams met in the Champions League qualifiers three years ago Qarabag defeated F91 Dudelange, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Charles Morren):
Charles Morren is a Belgian footballer who plays for Luxembourg side Dudelange as a midfielder. Morren started his senior career at Lessines-Ollign and in July, 2014 he moved to fellow Belgian side Saint Gilloise. In 2019 he moved to F91 Dudelange and he has been playing for the most successful Luxembourg club ever since.
In the 2019/2020 season Charles Morren helped Dudelange book their place in the Europa League group stages as they outplayed Ararat-Armenia in the play-offs. It has to be noted that he made six appearances for Emilio Ferrera’s troops in the 2019/2020 Europa League qualifiers.
Dudelange were placed in group A alongside APOEL, Qarabag and Sevilla. Morren’s main position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. The Dudelange footballer has yet to make his debut with Belgium national team. His preferred foot is right.
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.
