Azerbaijan's side arrive in this game with a 1-3 defeat to Hungary, thus adding to their second defeat at this stage of qualifying for the 2020 European Championship: the only goal of the team was signed by Madatov. In this game against Slovakia, the team headed by Nikola Jurcevic should be in 4-3-3 privileging the defensive organization and counterattacks: Madatov is one of the fastest players in the home team. To remember that the selection of Azerbaijan presents misses in the defensive and offensive defensive balls, in the defensive transition and in the aerial game, however, competence in the counterattack. There are no weight absences for this game.

In the last round, they have lost an away match against Wales by (1‑0).

Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 4 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 5 out of 8 have ended with Under 2,5 goals.

In this match against Azerbaijan, coach Pavel Hapal must play the usual 4-3-3 privileging the maintenance of possession of the ball and organized attacks, particularly through the corridors. The midfielder Ondrej Duda should earn the confidence of the Slovakia coach, who is fundamental in the offensive process. For this game the coach can count on all his players.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be the existence of several goals. We believe that Slovakia will dominate part of the game and enjoy the best chances of goals, however, the rapid transitions of the Azerbaijan team can leave the visiting defense in trouble. On the other hand, both teams do not have a solid defensive sector, making betting in this match a great value.
