Slovakia News and Form – Can Slovakia win against Azerbaijan?

Slovakia needs two things to go their way to gain automatic qualification for Euro 2020. They have to win this home game against Azerbaijan first of all, which looks likely. Along with that win, they would need Wales v Hungary to end in a draw. It is a W3 D1 L3 record that Slovakia have earned in their seven games in the group and they are the second-highest scorers in the section as well. At home, they have produced a mixed bag of W1 D1 L1. Their loss was against Croatia.

They met Croatia for their reverse fixture just on Saturday away from home and lost 3-1. So that is why they are in this tight spot. It was looking good for them at half time in that match as they were 1-0 up and heading for a huge result. It didn’t pan out, however. Slovakia have suffered just one loss in their last seven competitive home fixtures (W3 D3). When they met Azerbaijan earlier in the campaign, Slovakia earned a 5-1 victory in Baku.

Slovakia vs Azerbaijan Head to Head

Slovakia are W 4 L1 against Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan’s only win against Slovakia happened at home in 2001
Slovakia have scored exactly 3 goals in their two previous home games against Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan have scored in two of the five previous meetings

 

Key-Facts – Slovakia vs Azerbaijan

  • Azerbaijan have never won an away qualifier for the Euros
  • Slovakia have to win this game to have a chance at qualifying
  • Azerbaijan have lost all away games in this group by a one goal margin

 

Azerbaijan News and Form

It’s been a campaign to forget for Azerbaijan who have earned only one point from seven games. They were hosting Wales on Saturday and tamely went down 2-0 in the fixture. It is a total of 16 goals that they have conceded in their seven qualification matches in the group and have lost all three of their road fixtures.

The only surprising thing about that is that all the defeats were by a one-goal margin. Azerbaijan are winless in their last nine competitive games now, losing seven of those. So it seems unlikely that they are going to pull off a shock away win in this fixture. Azerbaijan have never won a European Championship qualifier away from home. Their record in such fixtures is D4 L29.

Slovakia vs Azerbaijan Predictions

Slovakia to win: Given the situation, Slovakia can just drive at this game and throw everything they have at it. Azerbaijan are a weak side on the road and Slovakia can earn themselves a comfortable home win to nil. Will the other result between in the Wales v Hungary match go their way?
