Gabala received Inter at home in the Unibank Premier League’s sixteenth week on Sunday. The match ended in a draw- 0:0.
Cast your mind back to the qualifying round in Baku that, the teams had finished 1:1 then only after penalties.

The sides have started with careful show, which has been kept almost by the end, as it was felt with lack of serious goal threats.
The first scoring chance was set up in the 37th minute when Serge Djiehoua unsuccessfully headed in the box after Bruno da Silva’s long-range shot, but Giorgi Lomaia was on alert to deflect.
After five minutes, Lomaia was successful again to save his teammates from Mendy’s scoring danger.
The sides have shown the same struggle-level display in the second half, too. The first goal chance came up against Gabala’s net for Bachana Tskhadadze, which was carefully deflected by Pavel Doroshev. 
Shortly after, Gabala could have been beaten with the second hit by Ibrahima Niasse’s kick from better position this time, but Doroshev was on alert again.
Fatih Kavlak’s men stepped up attacks with series goal situations for the last minutes having a chance to be capitalized. Vurghun Huseynov’s weak header after corner was held by Lomaia. 
Substitute Nuran Gurbanov, entering the field in the extra time, has performed the last scoring episode- the direct shot has been beaten by Lomaia again.
So, the second game of the qualifying round also finished with one point for the both sides.

Fatih Kavlak: “I appreciate the opponents’ superior performance. I think Inter are the only team having the best physical form and tactics on Azerbaijan’s display. They play well with short transfers. We also are a good team. The both sides were fine at the show. My squad satisfied me, though our target was to earn three points.
