Qarabag today plays with Atletico Madrid in Champions League
Azerbaijan's Qarabag FC will play today its next match in the group stage of Champions League.

Ann.az informs, Aghdam club within the IV round will be guest of Atletico in Spain.

The first meeting of the clubs at Baku Olympic Stadium ended in a goalless draw on October 18. Qarabag defeating by Chelsea in England with a score of 0:6 and home match by Italia's Roma 1:2 in the first round, could earn its first point by ending the match with Atletico in a draw. Though it is difficult to keep this success, theoretically it is possible to qualify for round of 16. But if the squad led by Gurban Gurbanov loses the away match and Roma defeats Chelsea at home, the next two games in Champions League will be formal for Qarabag FC. Because Italians will be ahead of Azerbaijan's champion with 8 points.

If Chelsea defeats Roma in another match of group C, it will qualify for round of 16.
