NEFTCHI BAKU VS DINAMO TBILISI.
Neftchi Baku hold a 2-1 advantage from the first leg of their Champions League first-round qualifying tie as they prepare to welcome Dinamo Tbilisi to the Bakcell Arena for Wednesday’s decider.
Goalkeeper Aqil Mammadov made a series of saves while poor finishing and sloppy defending also cost the home side dearly.
With the prize of a clash with Olympiacos awaiting the winners, expect a very competitive contest to develop again with little between these sides in terms of quality.
Dinamo appear good value in the betting to return a better result tan when on home turf. Side won seven of their last ten domestic league road trips and have shown sporadic ability to get results away in Europe.
One such example was a 2-0 win over Nefchi’s domestic rivals Qabala in a Europa League away tie two years ago and that should give the visitors the belief it can be done again.
Our forecast of a 1-1 draw reflects the balance of play that the Georgians had in the first leg, but factors in the strength of the hosts on their own patch and the fact that they don’t need to win.
