Competition: Azerbaijan - Premyer Liqa
Date: Sunday, 25th, December 2022
Kickoff: 11:00 UK / 12.00 CET
Venue: Zira Stadium (Zira)
Zira was founded only eight years ago and what is characteristic of this club is that they have finished every season so far in the upper part of the table, while in the last season they were even in third position, securing a place in Europe. They never until now have highlighted a serious candidacy for the title in the Premyer Liqa of Azerbaijan, and this season they were "written off" from that list a long time ago, because they are an unattainable 20 points behind the current leader Qarabag. This means that they will once again be fighting for a place that secures European matches next season. There are some best premium soccer tips in here
Kapaz, one of the most prominent clubs in Azerbaijan, has fallen into huge financial problems which is why they have lost their status as a first division team in recent years. They returned lớn the top flight last season for the first time in seven years. However, The Mountaineers, as this club is nicknamed, expects a difficult road to "climb" to the top of Azerbaijani football. The situation in the club this season is chaotic, as the table itself confirms, because Kapaz currently has only one point less than the last placed Sabail (11 points won).
Zira vs Kapaz Betting Tips: Team1 lớn Win
Zira and Kapaz have already met once this season, in the 1st round. In the first match of the new season, Zira managed to collect all the spoils from the away game in Ganca, thanks to Sertan Tashkyn's goal in the 94th minute (2-1).
After a big fight, Zira was left without participation in the Azerbaijan Cup, as they lost lớn Nefchi Baku 2-3 on aggregate. But Zira had its chances, the biggest in the 111th minute, when Hamidou Keita missed a penalty to equalize.
After elimination from the Cup, Zira will throw all their cards at the domestic championship. Before this defeat, The Eagles were undefeated in their previous six games during which they kept five clean sheets.
Kapaz transferred the bad games in the domestic championship to the Cup, where they were eliminated by Turan in mid-week (2-3). This means that they have no choice but lớn fight for survival until the end of the season.
The Mountaineers have definitely "forgotten" what victory looks like, since they were without it for more than a month in all competitions, while they tasted the last sweetness of victory in the league on October 29. Let’s check soccer tip for today in this forum
Defense was evidently the weakest segment of Kapaz during this campaign. They have conceded the most goals of any team - 33 so far so far, so they are rightly awarded the unwanted title of the weakest "defender".
In fact, their away results are, lớn put it mildly, devastating. They are still winless (0-3-5), and to make matters worse, they conceded 21 goals in 8 games. So, we don't believe that Zira will have a better chance than this one to get back on the winning track, so we hope that all three points will stay with Zira.
