Azerbaijan

In four matches of selection Azerbaijan was able to earn only one point and with this "achievement" occupies the last line in its group. Gianni De Biasi's team scored only three goals and is inferior in this indicator to all the national teams in the overall standings. In the last round the Azerbaijanis were able to avoid another defeat and were even close to success in the game against the Irish national team on their field.

Distinguished at the end of the first half of the meeting, guests held the advantage to the last. However, the hosts were able to put the squeeze on them in the end and scored a return goal in the 87th minute. As a result, they got a draw (1:1) and the first point in the table.

Portugal

Under the leadership of Fernando Santos the Portuguese national team has 10 points scored and shares the first place in the group with the Serbs, inferior to them in additional indicators. The Portuguese conceded only four goals and this is the best indicator of defense.

In the last round the “chosen team” met with Ireland at home. Guests opened the scoring first, but thanks to the efforts of Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a double and missed a penalty, the hosts snatched a victory in a seemingly pass-through match (2:1). For unsportsmanlike behavior, the star Portuguese received a yellow card at the end of the match and it will not allow him to play against Azerbaijan.

Prediction

Azerbaijan has met with Portugal three times in its field and has never lost more than two goals. In addition, the absence of such an iconic figure as Cristiano Ronaldo in the camp of rivals should have a positive effect on the mood of the home team and in a completely different way on the spirit of the guests.

Most likely, the Portuguese will play the first number even without their leader, but his defining role in the team will certainly play against the team in the absence of the captain on the field. We believe that owners are quite capable of showing themselves positively in this confrontation and they will be able to avoid defeat.

Our prediction is an Asian handicap (+2.5) for Azerbaijan. 1xBet offers odds of 1.72 for such an outcome.

Azerbaijan has problems with creativity and against such an opponent it will not be able to create many scoring chances at all. Most likely, only guests will score in this meeting, but the absence of the main striking force of the Portuguese will affect their attacking potential. In our opinion, the confrontation will be saturated with power martial arts and will end in vain.

Our second bet will be under three goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.98.
