When FC Zurich host Qarabag FK on Wednesday for the second leg of their Champions League qualifying match, they will be attempting to overcome a one-goal deficit.
When Zurich fell to Qarabag in a five-goal thriller last week, it was their third loss in a row in all competitions. After that, they answered with a scoreless draw against Luzern at home in the league. Zurich will be looking to change their fortunes at home, where they lost just two of their last 23 games in all competitions last year.
Qarabag now lead Zurich by one goal as they try to advance to the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2017–18 after defeating Lech Poznan 5-2 on aggregate in the previous round.
Zurich performed well in the game that was played last week in Baku. But they clearly have defensive issues. Therefore, I should anticipate goals from both sides again in the future encounter.
