The Azerbaijani side came out on top through a 4-2 scoreline in last week’s opening leg, putting themselves in a strong position to progress in the competition.

After securing the Azerbaijani Premier League title last season and overcoming HJK Helsinki and Olimpija Ljubljana in qualifying, Qarabag finished second in their Europa League group, eight points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

That runners-up position meant Gurban Gurbanov’s side faced the challenge of a playoff round against Portuguese side Sporting Braga.

Their 4-2 victory in the away leg in Portugal has them on the brink of the next round. Marko Jankovic converted a penalty to put Qarabag ahead, but Braga equalised just before halftime through Simon Banza.

Qarabag then dminated a 15-minute spell in the second half, scoring three times through Juninho and Abdellah Zoubir’s brace. However, Joao Moutinho pulled one back for Braga from the spot in stoppage time.

Gurbanov’s side have enjoyed a full week of rest since the first leg to prepare and finish the job on Thursday, while Braga have been let down by a leaky defence this season, despite their potent in attack.

The Archbishops have conceded the most goal among the top nine clubs in the Portuguese league, despite boasting the third-highest scoring record in the division.

This trend continued in their Champions League group, where they conceded the most goals – letting in 12 – despite finishing third ahead of Union Berlin.

A 5-0 thrashing by Sporting Lisbon and a 2-1 victory over Farense last weekend brough their goals conceded in the last three matches to 10, following their four they let in against Qarabag.

Artur Jorge faces a crucial task in finding a solution to these defensive frailties as his side aims to overturn a two-goal deficit and keep their European dreams alive.

Marko Vesovic could return to the defense after missing the first leg due to a red card he received in the final Europa League group-stage match against Hacken.

Qarabag have a clean bill of health ahead of Thursday’s second leg, leaving Gurbanov with a wealth of option to pick from.
