Serbia and Azerbaijan go head-to-head in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night. With Portugal breathing down their neck in Group A, the Serbs will be looking for no less than three points at the Rajko Mitic Stadium in Belgrade. As you would anticipate, the home team are the clear favourites with the bookies, but the eliminated Azerbaijanis have nothing to lose in this one. Read on for the latest odds and top predictions in our in-depth betting preview.

Serbia Preview – Serbs to secure a fifth victory?

Dragan Stojkovic’s Serbia have had an excellent 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign so far. The Serbs are sitting pretty at the top of Group A, though they have played a game more than Portugal, who are just a point behind.

Serbia have won four and drawn two of their six qualifiers, seeing off Republic of Ireland in game one before drawing with Portugal a few days later. The Eagles then beat Azerbaijan and Luxembourg (twice) and have drawn 1-1 with Ireland in Dublin.

Our betting prediction:
Serbia to win -1

(odds taken 1430 GMT, Monday 11 October)

Before ending qualification with a crunch match with Portugal in Lisbon, Serbia will be looking for all three points from Tuesday’s crucial qualifier. If they win their next two, Stojkovic’s troops will be in Qatar next year.

Azerbaijan Preview – Another heavy defeat for the Azerbaijanis?

Azerbaijan have had a poor qualifying campaign, taking just one point from a possible 18. The Azerbaijanis are already eliminated and look nailed on to finish rock bottom of Group A.

Gianni De Biasi’s men have been well out of their depth in the group, losing five times and shipping 12 goals. Their one and only point came in a 1-1 draw with Ireland at the Aviva Stadium last month. Last time out, they were beaten 3-0 by the Irish in Baku.

Azerbaijan have nothing to lose and everything to gain, but a trip to the group leaders will be an arduous task for a nation that has picked up just one win in over a year. The bookies have the away victory priced at 14/1.


Serbia vs Azerbaijan Betting Advice

To their credit, Azerbaijan gave Serbia a real game when the pair locked horns at the Baku Olympic Stadium back in March. Aleksandar Mitrovic was the hero for the Serbian side, scoring either side of Emin Mahmudov’s penalty to give the away team a narrow 2-1 win.


Key Facts – Serbia vs Azerbaijan Betting Tip

  • Serbia edged the reverse meeting in Baku
  • The Serbs are currently top of Group A with 14 points to their name
  • Aleksandar Mitrovic is the top scorer with seven Group A goals


Azerbaijan more than played their part when they clashed in Baku six months back, but we can only see one winner here. Serbia will be looking for a comfortable home victory as they close in on next year’s World Cup in Qatar. Have a punt on the hosts to be winning at half time and full time at 4/7.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has been in inspired form for the Eagles during this qualifying campaign, netting a staggering seven goals so far. Overall this season, Mitrovic has scored 12 goals in 14 appearances for club and country. Back the Fulham hitman to open the scoring in this one at 9/4.
