Third attempt – ANALYSIS

Zira, which will start to compete in European Cups today, will be a guest of Sheriff in Moldova.

As reports, this is the third attempt of the Baku club in continental tournaments.

The debut of the team, which will compete in the Europa League for the second time, coincided with the 2017/18 season. At that time, the representative of the capital defeated Luxembourg Differdange in both matches. These victories are the last successes of the town club in Europe. Zira, who played 4 more matches later, must prove that this number is considered lucky in their 7th match on the continent.

At that time, the Baku players, who beat the Luxembourgers, lost to Astra in Romania in the next round. The away goal was remembered as the team's last ball in the European Cup. In the next three meetings, Zira did not scored a goal.

Having drawn goalless with Astra in Baku and Maccabi two years ago, the armored team also conceded three goals in Israel. But this time they could not disappoint the opponent.

In total, 4 games without a win and 3 matches without a goal, the team has 2 wins and 1 draw in 6 matches. Zira, which lost three times, scored 5 goals and conceded 7.
