Azerbaijan Prediction – Can Azerbaijan finally get off the mark?

Monday night’s hosts, Azerbaijan, find themselves rooted to the bottom of Group E having lost all four of their matches during this Euro 2020 campaign to date in what has been a difficult and strong group to contend with.

Losses to Croatia 2-1 away, heavy losses at home to Hungary 3-1 and Slovakia 5-1 along with a 2-1 defeat away at Wales last time out has resulted in Azerbaijan still yet to gain a point and with another difficult challenge ahead of them on Monday night against Croatia.

Indeed, Azerbaijan’s struggles haven’t been limited to this current campaign as the hosts have gained just 1 win out of their last 16 Euro qualifiers overall, and that was a 2-0 home win against Malta, but they head into this encounter on the back of 6 defeats on the trot.

In addition, just 1 win out of their last 8 on home turf in Euro qualifiers suggest this could be another tough and disappointing evening for the hosts.

Croatia Prediction – Can Croatia pull away at top?

As expected, Croatia sit at the top of Group E in what has been a successful Euro 2020 campaign for Zlatko Delic’s side but they’re level on 9 points apiece with Hungary at the top of the group as we head into tonight’s action.

Both of the top two nations have won 3 and lost 1, and Croatia got this group phase off to a good start by recording a 2-1 home win against tonight’s opponents, Azerbaijan, but then fell to a 2-1 loss away at Hungary in their following match.

However, normal service was resumed with Croatia bagging back-to-back wins against Wales 2-1 at home and a convincing 4-0 victory away at Slovakia which has helped lift Monday night’s visitors to the top of Group E, albeit on goal difference.

Overall, Croatia have won 5 of their last 6 Euro qualifiers while away from home, the visitors have lost just 2 of their last 8 Euro qualifiers on their travels. They have the creative influence of midfielders Perisic and Modric pulling the strings in the middle of the park, and they should grab another three points here.


Key-Facts – Azerbaijan v Croatia

  • Azerbaijan have gained just 1 win out of their last 16 Euro qualifiers overall
  • Croatia have won 5 of their last 6 Euro qualifiers
  • 2 out of the last 3 encounters between these two teams have seen over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Azerbaijan have scored in each of their 4 group matches so far and could do so again tonight but Croatia should bag the 3 points here with a few goals overall as a result.
