Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Bakcell Arena will host Thursday’s Europa League qualifiers between Neftci Baku and Galatasaray. The Azeri outplayed Shkupi 2-1 in the first qualifying round, but they will have to be at their sharpest this time out if they are to cross one hurdle more in the qualifiers. Galatasaray failed to impress in the last Turkish Super Lig campaign, but thanks to their displays in the season finale, they eventually booked their place in European competitions.
The famous Turkish outfit have big ambitions for the 2020/21 Europa League campaign, and it has to be noted that the likes of Arda Turan, Omar Elabdellaoui, Fatih Ozturk, Emre Klinc, Kerem Akturkoglu, and Oghenekaro Etebo signed permanent deals with the club. Anyhow, Galatasaray are more of a team than Neftchi, and they are likely to prove their worth on the field. The good news for the visitors is that experienced attacker Radamel Falcao has overcome his long-term injury.
