- Football - Europe - UEFA - UEFA Europa League
I can't help but feel the market senses an air of uncertainty over FK Qabala and it went with what it knows better, that is German giants Borussia Dortmund, pricing this match at -2 handicap. It seems rather generous in my opinion. FK Qabala +2 is the value selection.
My price: FK Qabala +1. 5 $1. 85
The fact that FK Qabala started this competition from the very first round of qualification could explain their minnow status. However, I am rather impressed by their performances to date (a decent sample size of 10 matches in total). At home in particular, they have yet to concede a goal and that's 450 mins of football against the likes of Dinamo Tbilisi, Apollon, Panathinaikos and PAOK. If FK Qabala continue to leverage on their strength at the back and play a balanced game, I like their chances at +2.
Their cause will be boosted by Borussia Dortmund star midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan's withdrawal due to political reasons. The Armenian player currently leads his side in goals/assists in the competition. The German outfit's form hasn't been great of late and with the Europa League a lower priority (at this early stage), I can expect a considerable rotation and a less than strongest 11.
