Pick Under 2.5 Goals
Nantes are quite possibly the best team in the group, and as expected they started their Europa campaign with a victory. They are placed at the top of the table at the moment, and will lock horns with the bottom-most placed Qarabag this Thursday.
Qarabag are part of the Azerbaijani Premier League, and lifted the title the previous season in style. It is also impressive that they managed to recreate that form this time around as well.
However, one important thing that needs to be considered is their inexperience in European fixtures. They are not all equipped to take on veterans from the top-five leagues in Europe.
Meanwhile, Nantes are a powerful presence in France. They won the Coupe de France the last year, and are also a perennial contender for one of the top-tier spots in the French Ligue 1.
They registered a 2-1 win in front of their home crowd in the opening match-day of the Europa, against Piraeus, and if they are able to deliver one more victory this Thursday, their qualification to the knockouts would almost be a certainty.
At the same time, note that Qarabag lost 2-1 on the road against Freiburg in the first match-day.
