Our football match prediction:
Qarabag will be looking to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Fiorentina when they take on PAOK in Baku on Thursday evening. The Horsemen outplayed Sumqayit 3-0 in their last league match, but beating the Greek side in the Europa League is easier said than done. PAOK kicked off their Europa League campaign with a goalless draw against Fiorentina, but they defeated Slovan Liberec in Czech Republic in their second group game and it is no surprise they are considered favourites to win Thursday’s football match against Qarabag. You should bear in mind that PAOK suffered only one loss in previous 15 games in the Europa League. The Black and White faced Qabala in the 2015/2016 Europa League campaign and it has to be noted that they shared the spoils twice with the Azeri outfit. Anyhow, we predict that PAOK are going to emerge triumphant in the Tofiq Bəhramov adına Respublika stadionu clash.
Highlighted Team (PAOK):
PAOK are regarded as one of the most famous clubs in Greece. The club’s biggest rivals are Olympiakos, but they have a great rivalry with local rivals Aris as well. The Double-headed eagle play their home games at Toumba Stadion Thessaloniki and the capacity of the venue is 28 803. PAOK are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they often struggle when playing on the travels. The club won their first Greek Superleague title in 1976 and nine years later their clinched their second domestic trophy, finishing the season three points clear of Panathinaikos. Speaking of the club’s European success, the Black and Whites made it to the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1973/1974 season, but they were outplayed by Italian giants Milan in the two-legged tie. PAOK were founded on 20 April, 1926 and they play their home games in black and white shirts and black shorts. The club’s away colours are white.
