Neftchi Baku host Olympiacos in the second match of the Champions League qualifiers. The Greek champions secured a narrow 1:0 win in Athens and they are closer to secure a place in the third round of the competition. The midfielder Mady Camara scored the lone goal in the 29th minute. The winners will play against either Mura or Ludogorets in the next round.

The Azerbaijan champions were solid in the first round when won 2:1 both home and away against Dinamo Tbilisi from Georgia. Head coach Samir Abbasov is doing a great job. His men were fully competitive in the first leg against Olympiakos and they had numerous shots on target, but were unlucky to score. Mert Celik's first-leg dismissal means that he won't play through a suspension. In addition, striker Namiq Alasgarov at rated as doubtful because of injury.

Olympiakos have entered the Champions League qualifications at the second round. They are the best Greek side in the last decade. Coach Pedro Martins is doing an excellent job and his team finished a remarkable 26 points clear of second-placed PAOK. They were expected easily to overcome the opponents in this tie. And just when they scored the opening goal in the 29th minute, Camara was sent off and they they lost the initiative. Lucky for them, Neftchi were also reduced to 10 men after the break. Coach Martins will be without the suspended Mady Camara, while two players are out injured - Tiquinho Soares and Konstantinos Fortounis.

I think Neftchi Baku won't lose this match. They are solid team and they had European experience. Neftchi are investing a big money and it is not surprise they played in the group stage of UEFA competition back in 2012. They finished last in the group, but managed to achieve draws with Partizan Belgrade and Serie A side Inter Milan.
