Qarabag vs Hacken: Top free betting tips

Our Qarabag vs Hacken prediction is for a convincing home win. Can the visitors cause an upset?

Qarabag come into the final round of the group stage in control of their destiny. The Horsemen already secured at least the third spot so they are continuing in Europe next spring no matter what. Qarabag will remain in the Europa League if they match or better Molde’s result in the other game. A win now guarantees second place. 

At the same time, Hacken can’t wait for this year to be over. A disappointing end to the domestic campaign in October and 0 points from 5 games in the group means that the Swedish champions from 2022 will finish in last place in the group. The fact that the domestic season finished nearly 2 months ago is also not helping Hacken much. 

​Goalscorer prediction: Juninho to score anytime

Our first Qarabag vs Hacken prediction backs the main striker of the Horsemen to find the back of the net. Juninho has 3 goals in the 5 group-stage games already. He scored the winner in Sweden when Qarabag won 1-0. 

Juninho is in excellent form right now and he has scored in 10 of Qarabag’s last 13 matches in all competitions. 

​Clean sheet prediction: Qarabag clean sheet

Qarabag already kept 2 clean sheets in the group. Now they are up against a team that is bound to be rusty as their domestic season finished over a month ago. Qarabag kept a clean sheet in the away game vs Hacken too so with our second Qarabag vs Hacken prediction we back the Horsemen to achieve another shutdown. 

​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Qarabag

Our final Qarabag vs Hacken prediction is the traditional correct score pick we make. We back Qarabag to edge this game 1-0, just the way they won 1-0 in Sweden back in October. 

Both of Qarabag’s wins in the group so far had been with 1-0 scorelines. Also, we take into consideration the standings in the group. If Qarabag take the lead in this match they can opt to do what they do best and this is sit deep and soak up pressure without allowing any space.

​How far will Hacken's fans travel to Qarabag?

For those dedicated Hacken fans who decide to embark on the journey to Baku, there is only one option to do so and this is up in the air. The flight distance between Göteborg and Baku is 2045 miles (3291km). The flight times vary based on the size of the aircraft picked for the journey but everyone should prepare for at least 5 hours in flight and another hour or two of formalities at customs upon arrival. 

Baku is otherwise a place worth visiting and those who will make the journey are certain to enjoy a good time. The fans of the hosts are also a very friendly bunch so drinking parties in the hours before the match between fans from both teams are regular occurrences when Qarabag host games in Europe. 

Qarabag vs Hacken: Tickets

There are still tickets available for sale at the time of writing. However, none of the usual vendors sell tickets online for this match and really the only way to get a ticket is to go to Qarabag’s official website and via their email arrange everything and from where you will collect it. Yes, Qarabag still believe in physical tickets so to enter Azersun Arena in Baku you need to have a ticket in your hand and not just a digital proof of purchase. The cheapest seats available cost only €15.00

Hacken’s fans have to arrange their tickets via their own club’s website and our understanding is that still half of the allocated away tickets are available for the taking. It seems the significant cost related to the journey to Azerbaijan is putting off many fans.
