Azerbaijan vs Slovakia
Euro 2020 Qualification
Date: Tuesday 11th June 2019
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Bakcell Arena (Baku)
Azerbaijan are bottom of their Group E qualifying for Euro 2020 after losing both of their opening two games in their campaign. They really have to get something here if they have any chances to try and at least qualify via the play off’s.
The home nation’s form is poor with no wins in their last 4 games which includes 3 defeats. Their last match in this group ended in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Hungary. They have also lost to Croatia this year and drew in a friendly against Lithuania.
Slovakia are only just above their hosts in 4th place, having played 2 games and won 1 and lost 1. They beat Hungary 2-0 at home but lost against Wales away from home in a game that ended 1-0. Their last match was a friendly in which they easily beat Jordan 5-1.
Slovakia’s form is decent but their away form has been poor and they haven’t won on the road for a year.
Azerbaijan vs Slovakia: Head to Head
The nations have not played each other since 2001 when Azerbaijan at home won 2-0.
The nations have only placed each other twice with one win a piece. There is a 100% record to see over 1.5 goals.
Azerbaijan vs Slovakia: Prediction
Slovakia are the clear favourites to win the game and are just odds on with some bookmakers but some are still offering evens. Azerbaijan are as much as 4/1 to win the game and we think they might be underestimated here. They can give Slovakia a game and as we have said before Slovakia do not travel well.
It is worth taking a small risk and backing the home nation to get the win as they are great odds and their stadium in Baku will be very intimidating for this Slovakian side.
Azerbaijan vs Slovakia: Bet Tips:
Azerbaijan to beat Slovakia at 5.00 (4/1).
