The Sheriff vs. Qarabag match will be played on Tuesday, August 1, at the Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena, Tiraspol. This is the second leg of Champions League third qualifying phase. In the first match played in Azerbaijan, the match finished 0:0.

STATS

  • Sheriff is not in a perfect form at the start of the season - they won only one out of their last five games. The contrast is even bigger if we know that Sheriff won 10 out of 12 games before their bad series.
  • Qarabag is currently in a series of three matches without a defeat. Also, it is interesting that they played three friendly games during the summer and they lost all three!

HEAD TO HEAD

This will be the second meeting between these two teams. In the first match played a week ago,  we saw a 0:0 draw.

SHERIFF NEWS

Sheriff's domestic league already started, which can be a significant advantage in compared to Qarabag, which season hasn't begun yet. However, Sheriff played poorly in their first four games. They won eight points, and they are currently second in the table, behind Milsami, which has a one point lead at the moment. Sheriff achieved a solid result in the first match - every victory will lead them to the next phase, but a goalless draw in the first game also means that if Qarabag score, a draw in the second game will be enough for them to cruise into the next qualifying phase.
