Atletico Madrid vs Qarabag – UEFA Champions League : Another Champions’ League night at the Spanish capital…
This time with Atlético de Madrid hosting the side from Azerbaijan Qarabag, in a match of the 4th round of this Champions’ League Group C.
Atlético currently occupies the 3rd position in Group C with 2 points gained, and they are on a spot that would grant them access to the Europa League.
On the first 3 rounds, the Colchoneros were defeated at home by Chelsea (2-1) and they couldn’t get more than 2 draws on the trips to Azerbaijan (0-0) and Rome (0-0).
On a group with Roma and Chelsea, whoever loses points to Qarabag risks ending up on the Europa League.
On La Liga things aren’t going too bright as well, with the team already sitting 8 points behind leaders Barcelona.
A funny fact about this Atlético de Madrid is the existence of few goals on their matches, with 11 out of their 14 official matches ending with less than 2.5 goals scored.
Carrasco and Koke shouldn’t be available for El Cholo Simeone.
Qarabag was destined to finish in last place of this group C, and that’s the position they are on at the moment, without any big surprise, having only gotten 1 out of 9 possible points.
On the first round they were battered at Stamford Bridge 6-0. Then they hosted Roma and lost by the minimum margin (1-2), while being able to break the deadlock on their encounter with Atlético de Madrid (0-0).
This team also has a low goal scoring record, because if we analyse their performance on the Azerbaijani league, we can only find 1 match with over 3.5 goals on the 9 rounds played so far.
Atletico Madrid vs Qarabag – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Naturally, Atlético, in front of their fans, won’t fail to beat this Qarabag side, even so they don’t jeopardise their chances of advancing to the next stage.
Still, I don’t expect a very expressive victory so, I’m combining their win with the bet of Under 3.5 Goals in the match, like it has usually happened on the Colchoneros’ matches.
