Portugal Preview – Portuguese to start with an easy win?

Current European champions and UEFA Nations League winners Portugal start their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a match with minnows Azerbaijan. In truth, Fernando Santos’ boys should have no problems in this one.

Portugal have a busy schedule with three qualifiers coming up in the next week. After Wednesday’s game with Azerbaijan in Italy, they make the trip to Belgrade to face Serbia at the weekend. Next Tuesday, Portugal take on Luxembourg at the Stade Josy Barthel.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1636 GMT, Tuesday 23 March)

Santos’ side are in solid form ahead of this World Cup qualifying campaign. The Navigators have been beaten just once since October 2019, winning 12 of their last 16 fixtures in all competitions. The Euro 2016 champions should cruise to all three points in Turin in midweek.

Azerbaijan Preview – Heavy defeat in Turin?

Incredibly, Azerbaijan have drawn their last four games all 0-0. They picked up a Nations League victory over Cyprus in September last year, which was only their second win since November 2018.

Azerbaijan are likely to struggle in Group A, with the Azerbaijanis set to battle it out with Luxembourg for fourth place. After kicking off their qualifying campaign against Portugal in Italy, Gianni De Biasi’s boys welcome Serbia to the beautiful Baku Olympic Stadium next Tuesday.

This will no doubt be a tough day at the office against one of Europe’s elite. Azerbaijan will be hoping to keep the scoring as low as possible at the Juventus Stadium, but they could be on the wrong end of a cricket score.

Portugal and Azerbaijan last met in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying. The Portuguese eased to wins home and away, winning 3-0 on their own patch and 2-0 in Baku. Portugal have a superb record in this fixture, though the Azerbaijanis did hold them to a shock 1-1 draw in a UEFA Euro 2000 qualifier back in September ’99.


Key Facts – Portugal vs Azerbaijan Betting Tip

  • Azerbaijan have never beaten Portugal
  • The Azerbaijanis have picked up just two wins since November 2018
