Azerbaijan vs Faroe Islands
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 17 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Baki Olimpiya Stadionu (Baku).
Azerbaijan will be hoping to back up a comfortable 0-3 victory over Faroe Islands when the two sides met each other on the Faroese soil last month. The win got Azer’s campaign up and running as they look to keep the top spot challenge going after the 5th round clash at Baku Olimpiya Stadionu.
Team Milli did, however, slip up in the previous round when they only drew 1-1 to Malta which is why they are two points shy of Kosovo at the top of the Group 3 standings. The team led by Qurban Qurbanov did not lose a single of four games in the group so far, but they drew as many as three mainly thanks to the lack of attacking inspiration against the likes of Kosovo and Malta. Can they get better off Faroe Islands on Saturday afternoon?
Azerbaijan vs Faroe Islands: Head-to-head
This will only be the third head to head encounter between the two teams.
Azerbaijan came on top on both occasions so far as they clinched two separate 0-3 wins.
Azerbaijan vs Faroe Islands: Prediction
The visitors can still theoretically join the battle for the very top of the ladder being four points below leaders Kosovo with two games left to play. However, they will come into this in low spirits after losing two and drawing one of past three matches.
Lars Cristian Olsen’s men failed to score more than one goal in the process. The visitors will be encouraged with the form of Joan Simun Edmundsson who made 13 appearances for Arminia Bielefeld in 2. Bundesliga this season.
Azerbaijan, however, need to be regarded as favourites here, if nothing because of the impressive 0-3 victory over Faroe Islands in an affair played a month ago. They scored five goals in last three games and are worth backing to win the match at the odds of 1.55.
