Gabala beat AZAL in the 14th tour of the Topaz Premier League for the 20th tie.

The pace of the match got underway by mutual attack of the sides. Taking the lead gradually, Gabala set up their first threat in the 6th minute when Yannick Kamanan failed to score after being one on one with the visiting keeper. Another occasion came up with Ebecilio being deflected by the keeper clear. The most pulsating threat of the half appeared by Subotic, whose header was denied by the post after a cool corner.

The second period started a bit lifelessly. Then Yuri Semin made a good flavor to the show on 62 minutes replacing his forwards -- Subotic and Kamanan were substituted by, respectively, Afolabi and Mendy. The game got dynamism with sustained period of Gabala attacks led to the 72nd minute goal. Leonardo Da Silva put his team one ahead by a perfect shot- 1:0. Several minutes later on, Leonardo could have been doubled his goal but his free kick was deflected by the post.

The result left Gabala fortifying in the top 3 on the league table.
