According to Report, the Black and Whites will face Georgia's Dinamo (Tbilisi) at Bakcell Arena. The game will start at 21:00. Dumitru Muntean from the Football Federation of Moldova will conduct the match.

It will be Neftchi's 20th-anniversary match in the Champions League. The flagship has won 6 of its 19 games so far. Five games ended in a draw, while eight ended with the defeat of the representative of the capital.
