Zira will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 1-2 Premyer Liqasi success over Səbail.

The attacking players from Sumgayit have made hard work of scoring goals over their previous six clashes, netting the disappointing return of just 4. In those matches, Sumgayit have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 5. That pattern might not follow through into this match, however.
