Tabriz Hasanov: "We can fight against Bayer"

“The victory over Braga made us happy, but the draw was a disappointment. No need to talk much about Bayer. Everyone knows how strong this club is."

The former Qarabag player Tabriz Hasanov told

He evaluated the match of Qarabag against Bayer in the Europa League R16 final stage. The veteran football player said that the Azerbaijani champion will play well at home today: “Bayer is a team capable of winning the Europa League. But you can play against the Germans. Our great game in Baku in the group stage also gives us hope. If it wasn't for a penalty in the last minutes, the match would have ended in a draw. We had a lot of attacks. In that match, Qarabag played very well and gave great hopes to the fans. I also think that Qarabag played a good game and will get a good result."

Hasanov also touched on how the losses in Qarabag will affect the performance of the team: "The losses are serious. The suspension of Elvin Jafarguliyev after Kevin Medina will affect the game. He's been doing really well lately. The absence of Julio Romao, one of the heart and engines of the team, will also have effects. The performance of him and Marko Jankovic in the last matches gave Qarabag a lot of advantage. It will be difficult for them not to play. But there are good players who can replace them. Patrick Andrade and Alexey Isayev are also in good form. For this reason, I think that an interesting game awaits us. By advancing to the R16 finals, Qarabag has come a long way. At the moment, the whole of Europe is talking about our team."

It should be noted that the Qarabag - Bayer match, which will be held today at the Tofig Bahramov Stadium, will start at 21:45.
