Cyprus vs Azerbaijan Prediction & Match Preview

Cyprus vs Azerbaijan
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 8 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Neo GSP Stadium (Nicosia).

With both teams that have lost their opening matches in the group, we cannot expect any fireworks in the ninety minutes at Neo GSP Stadium. Cyprus will host Azerbaijan with hopes to work something out with their home ground advantage in the game.

Both teams are on a four-game losing streak in their respective schedules, and Azerbaijan will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Luxembourg in the previous clash of the UNL fixture. Meanwhile, the host will host their second consecutive home match after losing the opening one to Montenegro with a 0-2 scoreline.

Having a slightly better form and the element of surprise, as both teams will meet for the first time in decades; the home team will be closer to creating more chances in the encounter.

Prediction

The 2-0 loss in their UNL opener last time out means Cyprus’s last four UNL matches produced exactly two goals despite the results. Three of their four UNL defeats in their schedule of late have come by the same scoreline in each game.

This shows that the match is likely to have a couple of goals in ninety minutes at least. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will act as the best bet for the punters from the goals area in the encounter to yield decent returns.

The host does not enjoy much ground advantage, but the poor away form of Azerbaijan will probably aid them in the quest for three points. The safest bet for the punters in the clash will be a draw no bet over Cyprus since they are likely to perform better at home.

Tips

  • Over 1.5 goals @ 1.50 (1/2).
  • Draw no bet: Cyprus @ 1.50 (1/2).
