Nomme Kalju vs Khazar Lenkoran by Isaiah
The game will be held in Levadia's stadium, as the stadium of Nomme Kalju does not meet the requirements of UEFA, however, the two stadiums are in the same city of Tallinn.
Nomme Kalju may not have been the favorite before to the first game, but after the 2-2 away draw to the first match, they can boast that now they have a good chance to qualify to the next round of Europa League. They had a good performance in Azerbaijan, but they were too lucky and scored at crucial minutes of the match.
The result of the first game boosted their psychology and showed that they are in a good competitive level, but they must not be complacent if they want to try to qualify. The good news are that there are no squad problems. Striker Neemelo who missed the first game, is back to the squad but probably will sit on the bench. Anyway, they must be totally focused, as Khazar Lenkoran has lot of players who can make a difference during all ninety minutes.

Khazar Lenkoran was superior in the first game, but they were betrayed by their defense. They deserved to get the win and go with the advantage in Estonia, but anyway, with a victory tonight they would be the team that will pass to the next phase of Europa League.
I do not think that this will be the last European game for Khazar this season. Although the result of the first game gives precedence to the Estonians, i think that Khazar is the better team and they can win and qualify. I rate Azeri football a little bit above Estonian, they have lot of improvement during the last five years, while Kalju does not meet any requirements of UEFA.
Under the guidance of Yunis Huseynov, who has full confidence to his players, Khazar will give their best to achieve the desired victory. Serbian striker Subasic will be alone to the attacking line, as he is the only clear striker to Khazar squad, but he can do the damage like he did on first game where he scored.
