Match preview

After a frantic, thrilling first leg at Tofiq Bahramov Republican Stadium, this tie is still wide open.

Qarabağ looked like running away with it when Kady broke the deadlock before Ibrahima Wadji made it 2-0 shortly after.

Lindrit Kamberi then halved the deficit mid-way through the second half, only for Wadji to restore the host’s two-goal cushion straight from kick off.

Nevertheless, Mirlind Kryeziu’s penalty just four minutes from time ensured Zürich left Bakı just one goal down.

Let’s hope for an equally thrilling second leg at Letzigrund.

FC Zürich won their first Swiss Super League title since 2009 last season, ending Basel’ and then Young Boys’ domination.

To date, FCZ have qualified for six UEFA group stages, most recently appearing in the Champions League in 2018.

Will Franco Foda’s side turn this tie around and keep their Champions League hopes alive.

Qarabağ meanwhile have won eight of the last nine Azerbaijani titles, only missing out on the 2021 trophy by conceding a stoppage time winner on the final day against Neftçi

So, in Europe, the Horseman have made it to eight group stages since 2014, winning 31 of their last 41 qualification ties.

It won’t be easy, but Zürich will feel they have a good chance of turning this tie around.

Whoever gets through will play Ferencváros or ŠK Slovan Bratislava, probably the latter, in the Champions League third qualifying round.

The losers drop into the Europa League third qualifying round where they’ll meet the losers of Bodø/Glimt vs Linfield.
