Gabala are tackled with winter preparation ahead of early matches of this year reinforcing the reserve team by five new players from Academy: Farid Hagverdiyev (midfielder), Ruslan Badalov (defender), Seymur Asadov (midfielder), Salman Ibrahimov (forward) and Parviz Mustafayev (forward). Some more students are expected to be able to perform in the home team.
The coaching staff picked the five after taking a see at them on the job training as some others were released at insufficiency assessment. The Academy team were tested by three matches during the preparation period from 26 January to 2 February. Firstly they defeated the Sumgayit reserve 4:2 thanks to Amil Yunanov (2), Salman Ibrahimov and Parviz Mustafayev before beating Ravan 2:1. The last third win was gained on Inter who left the pitch drooling for 4:3.
Presently, our reserve team are training for their closest match against Simurg, the indoor peparation because of the heavy snowing.
