Dinamo Tbilisi vs Gabala by Dajkula

Dinamo Tbilisi from Georgia welcomes Qabala from Azerbaijan in the first Qualifying round of the Europa league. Both teams finished third last season but the hosts with much smaller difference to the champion than the visitors. Dinamo has much more experience in Europe playing CL qulifications and EL Qualifications. They are a multiple Georgian champion and in 2013 and 2014 most recently.


Dinamo is ranked 157 by UEFa while Qabala is placed 20 places lower. But Qabala is worth more by transfermarkt and made investments in last seasons. They have players from Ukraine, Belarus, Romania and recently brought some solid players like Vernydub from Zorya, Stankovic from Inter Baku, Zenjov from Torpedo Moscow, Antonov from Aktobe. A lot of the players have arrived recently and I doubt they will make a compact unit so early.


The same thing happened last year I remember when Qabala made a debut in EL against Siroki Brijeg. A big investment was made and the odds droped big on Qabala but they fell miserably and lost at home 0:2 and 3:0 away. They don`t have the same quality and especially not the experience the hosts have.


The teams played some friendlies and Qabala played 1:0 and 1:1 against Inter Baku while Dinamo played 0:1 against Shkendija, 3:1 against Domzale and 2:0 against Zavrc.


Dinamo has lost just 1 EL home game since 2007 and it was 0:5 against Tottenham in 2015. They have some notable results like 1:1 vs AEK, 2:0 KR, 1:1 Sturm, 2:0 Crvena Zvezda though it must be said not recently. Still I fancy them to make the most of their home ground against a team of dubious quality.
