Kazakhstan vs Azerbaijan
Date: Tuesday, 5th June 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Astana Arena, Astana.
Astana Arena in Kazakhstan has seen some great matches in the Champions League this season, but this Tuesday it is going to serve for a friendly game played between Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. Two teams haven’t achieved any significant success on the international scene for a long time now, but that could potentially change with the start of UEFA Nations League.
Kazakhstan have played two games in 2018 so far, and overall results were solid. It started with surprising 3-2 win on the road against Hungary (many would say the best performance of the decade), followed with a narrow loss to Bulgaria in late March. Kazakhs are going to play in the group with Latvia, Georgia and Andorra, so picking Azerbaijan for a test game was a logical choice.
As for their opposition, The Oilers have started playing worse after the departure of Robert Prosinecki who was their head manager for almost two years.
Kazakhstan vs Azerbaijan Head-to-head
- Teams have met eight times in the past, but only once recently (in 2016).
- Kazakhstan won in three encounters, while losing only two.
- The average number of goals scored in their duels is at 2.40 per match.
Kazakhstan vs Azerbaijan Predictions
Even though Azerbaijan looked solid against Kyrgyzstan a couple of days ago, Kazakhstan should be more serious contender here. Beating Hungary on the road, a team which played good at EURO 2016 is definitely a sign of a big improvement. Besides that, the odds are also very good (2.35 at the moment).
As for the goals market, Under 2.5 FT is the most logical choice. However, if you are hunting for some higher value, Under 1.5 FT is probably the best bet you can make.
Kazakhstan vs Azerbaijan Betting Tips
- Under 1.5 goals FT @ 2.25
- Home win @ 2.35.
