Azerbaijan – Can Azerbaijan open their account on home turf?

Azerbaijan have played just one match so far in their Euro 2020 campaign but this ended in a rather predictable 2-1 loss away at Croatia, so no doubt the hosts will be keen to get off the mark when they return to home turf for this Saturday evening’s clash with Hungary.

Azerbaijan have managed to register just 1 win out of their last 5 matches overall which was a 2-0 home win against minnows Faroe Islands in the Nations League but recent losses to Kosovo and Croatia along with draws against Malta and Lithuania suggest that all three points for the hosts here seem a slim likelihood.

That said, the hosts bring a pretty solid looking 6-match unbeaten run on home soil which includes wins over Kyrgystan and Faroe Islands as well as four draws, but they’ll be up against stronger opposition in the shape of Hungary on Saturday evening.

Azerbaijan have not had a good time of it against Hungary either as the hosts have lost all 5 of their previous encounters against Saturday evening’s visitors.

Hungary Prediction – Can Hungary continue dominance over Azerbaijan?

Hungary head into this Saturday evening clash at Azerbaijan in pretty reasonable form as they’ve won 3 of their last 4 matches which includes wins against Estonia and Finland which were both in the Nations League, along with what could prove to be a vital 2-1 home win against Croatia.

However, the visitors started their Euro 2020 campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Slovakia who currently sit top of Group E, but considering their previous dominance over Azerbaijan in past encounters, Hungary will be confident that they can grab another three points here and contest the top two positions of the group.

If they’re to do so though, Hungary will need to break a miserable 9-match sequence without a win on their travels which has seen the visitors stumble to 7 defeats on the road.

Particularly worrying for Hungary is the fact that they’ve failed to score in 5 of these last 9 away matches, but with Sporting Kansas forward Nemeth and Hoffenheim’s striker Szalai up front, Hungary will be confident they can get a result here.


Key-Facts – Azerbaijan v Hungary

  • Azerbaijan are unbeaten in their last 6 home matches in all competitions
  • Hungary have won all 5 of their previous meetings against Azerbaijan
  • Hungary are without an away win from their last 9 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

Azerbaijan have shown improvement on home soil recently, but their poor record against a stronger Hungarian outfit may be a bridge too far for the hosts.
