Neftci Baku Preview – Can Neftci make most of last chance?

It’s a case of the ‘last chance saloon’ for Azerbaijan hosts, Neftci Baku, ahead of this 1st leg of their Europa Conference League play-off tie against Israeli visitors, Maccabi Haifa, as Neftci have already been dumped out of the Champions League and the Europa League so far this season.

Although they registered a 4-2 win on aggregate against Dinamo Tbilisi in the 1st qualifying round of the Champions League, they suffered an early exit to Olympiakos, 2-0 on aggregate, in the following qualifying round and were then dumped out of the Europa League qualifiers by Finnish outfit, HJK, by a 5-2 margin.

This is therefore Neftci’s last chance at European football this season and having failed to win any of their last five matches overall, the hosts look to be skating on thin ice here.

Our betting suggestion:

Maccabi Haifa Preview – Can Maccabi Haifa end Neftci’s journey?

Maccabi Haifa also registered a win over Georgian club, Dinamo Tbilisi, with a comprehensive 7-2 win on aggregate in the Europa Conference League after they too suffered an early exit from the Champions League to Kazakhstan side, Kairat Almaty.

Maccabi Haifa followed that win in the Conference League with a 7-3 win on aggregate against Faroe Islands outfit, HB, to reach the play-off stage of this competition while results away from home have been generally encouraging.

The Israeli visitors have lost just two of their last 11 matches on their travels in all competitions and they should at least earn a draw in this 1st leg, if not secure a lead ahead of the return leg next week.
