Players to Watch
The Senegalese forward provides pace, bounds of energy, and constant movement upfront for Qarabag. His dynamism makes the Qarabag attack hard to pin down and thus dangerous to opponents.
Wadji will be crucial for Qarabag as they look to overcome a 1-0 deficit against Lech Poznan on Tuesday and make it into the second round of Champions League qualifiers.
The Swedish striker offers a physical presence up front for Poznan. This helps the team to be dangerous from set-pieces as well as posing a massive aerial threat when balls are whipped into the box.
However, Ishak is also dynamic with the ball at his feet, and his finishing makes him one of Poznan’s lost lethal players inside the box.
Ishak will be pivotal for Poznan in the clash with Qarabag as they look to hang on to their slender 1-0 advantage.
Trailing by a goal in this tie, Qarabag will start strongly as they seek to turn the scoreline in their favor. They will press and play an attacking approach to the match from the first whistle.
Lech Poznan will look to preserve their advantage and add to it. Without being overly defensive, they will look to strike a balance between attack and defense.
A draw is the likely result in this match given the form and quality of the teams taking the pitch on Tuesday.
