The two teams have met once in the European Cups so far. In the 2016/2017 season, the representative of Pilsen won the duel that coincided with the third qualifying round of the CL. A goalless draw was recorded in the match in the Czech Republic. The visitors, who drew 1:1 in the match in Baku, won the stage thanks to an away goal. In this sense, tomorrow’s match has the nature of a rematch for the “dead horses”.
Agdam club will enter the game with serious losses. Central defenders Maksim Medvedev and Kevin Medina will not be able to participate in the match due to injury. There are no losses in the opponent’s team.
