Azerbaijan vs Luxembourg
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Baku Olympic Stadium.
This League C – Group C1 consists of some of the weakest teams in Europe, and it’s an opportunity for all these squads to make the most of it, and get promoted to the higher League B.
Quite understandably, these teams have terrible defenses, and have been conceding goals in plenty for the last several years.
Considering the stakes involved, and the high-pressure scenario, it’s expected that we could witness a high-scoring thriller between these two teams this weekend.
Going on though, despite the absence of fans, Milli are expected to have an advantage at home – as their counterparts are one of the worst team on the road in Europe in the past five years.
In fact, since 2015, the sole two wins this squad has recorded away from home were against San Marino and Malta – two of the worst sides in the whole continent.
For the reason, expect Azerbaijan to have an upper hand this Saturday.
Azerbaijan vs Luxembourg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash between the two had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- Gianni De Biasi’s men have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent.
- Only once have they failed to score against this rival.
- Both teams had scored goals in all but one fixture so far.
Azerbaijan vs Luxembourg: Prediction
Biasi’s men have a perfect unbeaten record against this opponent over the years, and they also were unbeaten in two of their previous five match-ups. Impressively, one of these games were a 1-1 draw against World Cup finalists, Croatia.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a seven-game losing run, and a ten-match winless run. And most importantly, in the past five years, their only wins away from home had come against San Marino, and Malta – two absolutely weak teams.
For the reasons, expect Azerbaijan to win at least one half this Saturday.
Going on, Milli had conceded two or more goals in eight of their last eleven overall fixtures, while their opposite number had let in a total of 15 goals from their preceding five games alone.
They had also conceded ten goals from their former three road trips, and the last clean sheet they had kept away from home was against San Marino.
In addition, both these squads have terrible defense, and on top of that, they are also determined to record a win at any cost – in order to have a good shot at securing a promotion.
Likely, it’s logical to expect at least two goals this Saturday at the Baku Olympic Stadium.
