Germany vs Azerbaijan: Preview and Predictions

Germany vs Azerbaijan-World Cup Qualifier

Germany vs Azerbaijan
WC Qualification Europe
Date: 8th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Fritz-Walter-Stadion.

Azerbaijan will have the honour of closing the generally very successful qualifying campaign with the visit to Fritz-Walter-Stadion and the clash with Germany in Kaiserslautern on Sunday evening.

The hosts have already secured the top position and the direct qualification for the World Cup in Russia and Joachim Low will likely mix up his lineup a bit to try and find the new addition to the potential World Cup squad.


Die Mannschaft have been more than impressive in this qualifying term as they notched 35 goals conceding no more than two in eight matches.

Thomas Muller has been the most efficient man netting five goals and the clash with Azerbaijan could just be his opportunity to improve the poor shape he has had wearing Bayern Munich’s shirt at the start of the season.

Muller scored only a single goal in seven appearances for German champions so far in the campaign.


The Croatian manager Robert Prosinecki can clearly be proud of the fact his team took as many as 10 points in such a tough group with the likes of Germany, Czech Republic, Norway and Northern Ireland.

Azerbaijan bagged as many as five goals in the thumping of San Marino a month ago when Afran Ismayilov notched a brace.

Germany vs Azerbaijan: Head to head

Germany have been absolutely ruthless in each of their previous five H2H encounters with Azerbaijan.

DFB-Elf bagged four goals back in March this year when they met Azerbaijan for the first time in this qualifying term.

Andre Schurrle completed a brace, while Thomas Muller and Mario Gomez added their names to the scoreline in a 1-4 win in Baku.

Germany vs Azerbaijan: Prediction

The Germans are obviously massive favourites and we can expect a goal fest in the last match of the campaign.

Braver tipsters can try with Thomas Muller to score two or more goals at the odds of 6/4.
