Dinamo Tbilisi were clearly the better team in the first leg, but the narrow lead on aggregate provides Neftci with the luxury of being able to play on the counter-attack. The hosts are expected to sit deep and try to see out this game. Even though Dinamo Tbilisi will be a lot of quality of the pitch, they are likely to struggle against a packed defence. This will see the two teams share the spoils.
BTTS – yes
Dinamo Tbilisi could have scored a couple of more goals in the first leg if not for some poor finishing. It would be quite difficult to address the same within this short span but they need to get something back quickly to push for a win in the tie. At the same time, Neftci will be dangerous on the counter-attack – as they were in the first leg.
Total goals under 2.5
This game is likely to see a significant reduction in the chances created at both ends of the pitch. An aggregate lead for the home team should make them happy with defending for most of the game, while Dinamo Tbilisi struggled with being clinical in the final third of the pitch even in the first leg.

Neftci were able to take their chances and make the most of the opportunities even during the first leg. As a result, Samir Abbasov’s men have the ability to sit back and make the opposition come out. Abbasov may be sending out his players with the intention of not conceding an early goal. There are no injury worries for the Azerbaijani team.
Despite a strong performance in the first leg, Dinamo Tbilisi will be disappointed to have come out with a defeat. The lack of clinical finishing is a big worry for the visitors, who had most of the ball in the first leg. It is unlikely to see the trend reversing in just a short span. Once again, Dinamo Tbilisi have a fully fit squad.
