Vladimir Dyadyun (R): Netted the only goal of the game in Azerbaijan

Rubin Kazan face an anxious wait to see if they have reached the last 32 of the Europa League after Vladimir Dyadyun's early goal sealed victory over Neftchi at the Tofik Bakhramov Stadium.

The Russians' progression to the knock-out stage will be confirmed if Partizan Belgrade fail to beat Inter Milan, but a Serbian victory would deny Rubin a guaranteed top-two spot in Group H.

Neftchi offered precious little to suggest they are capable of overturning a six-point deficit in the remaining two games to qualify, an unlikely feat that would be mathematically impossible should Inter pick up a point in Belgrade.

Rubin's Alan Kasaev saw his shot blocked by Tarlan Guliyev in the seventh minute but Bebras Natcho went closer with the rebound, his shot just skimming the crossbar.

Natcho made amends in the 16th minute, though, picking out Dyadyun to nod the ball home following a short corner.

Neftchi struggled to find a way back into the game before the break and were lucky to keep the gap to a single goal as Jose Salomon Rondon pinged a header high and wide following Vitali Kaleshin's fine cross.

The Azerbaijani side almost found a way through following the restart, but Sergei Ryzhikov was equal to Bruno Bertucci's free-kick, tipping the ball round a post and to safety.

Rondon rattled the woodwork as Rubin launched a full-blooded assault on the hosts, Dyadyun then forcing a stunning fingertip save from Sasa Stamenkovic, who soon had to smother a drive from Gokdeniz Karadeniz.

All Boyukagha Hajiyev's men could do was push the visitors back into their own half and that tactic worked for most of the second half, with the eager Dyadyun restricted to shooting from distance.

Araz Abdullayev did wriggle past Rubin's high line to drill an effort at Sergei Ryzhikov 10 minutes from time, but his accuracy was sorely lacking.
