Partizan is facing FC Nefci Baku in first leg. Partizan is in good form, they easily won two games in national league and with great enthusiasm expecting this game. In this moment, this match is crucial for hosts, fans expectations are highest, so playing Europa league is priority. They closely lost in Champs league quals vs Ludogorets, they are now hungry of success in Europe league. Partizan is playing aggressive and fast football with lot of goals and I think they wont change for this one. Lazetic and Skuletic are in good scoring form and host will build a game on that. Partizan has huge financial problems, going trough in group stage is a chance for partial recovery. They sold today vice-captain Stankovic in Lazio, but he will be in squad for this game.
FC Nefci is not strong as they use to be. They lost domestic league title after 3 years, ending on fourth place. Nefci play variable, last round they won in Baku derby, before that lost vs Araz 3:0. In Europe they are trough playing well away games, but with much lower reputation opponents.
In front of their fans Partizan is a favorite, weather will be fine and they would have to win in order to go trough, my predicton HOME WIN, maybe X-1.
