Slovakia vs Azerbaijan: Our top betting tips

Slovakia are very much a win one, lose one sort of side in the Nations League. They lost last time out so does that mean they'll be winning this time? Find out with our Slovakia vs Azerbaijan match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Slovakia to win it to nil

Slovakia might lose a fair few games, as proven by the fact they've lost three of their past six matches, but they also know how to win games of football and that is backed up by the fact they've won the other three of that six game spell we reference. Notably, each of those three wins have come to nil and that's exactly what our prediction is here; we fancy Slovakia to win with a cleansheet to boot. So, we've explained why that's a wise bet from Slovakia's angle but how does Azerbaijan's record of late stack up? Well, they've won just one of their last five games and that's the only game of the five where they've found the net. On top of that, a look to the head to head record shows the last two clashes have both seen Slovakia run out winners to nil.

A low scoring match awaits

Our next prediction for this game sees us back a low scoring match with an under 2.5 goal prediction. Slovakia have gone under 2.5 goals in four of their last five matches with a game average of 1.6 per match. Azerbaijan meanwhile have gone under 2.5 in each of their last five seeing a total of just six goals in that period; that's just 1.2 per match. Combine that with three of the last four head to head meetings also falling short of the 2.5 mark and you'll see exactly why we think this is a wise bet.

Can either side pour pressure on group leaders?

Slovakia and Azerbaijan have been far from perfect in the group but both remain in with a mathematical chance of topping the standings – albeit it's far more likely to happen for Slovakia. Should the hosts win, they could end the day just one point off top spot. For Azerbaijan, they could move to within three of Kazakhstan but, perhaps more importantly, a defeat could see them drop into bottom spot.

Slovakia will be confident of winning this game and the prospect of moving to within touching distance of the group leaders will be a huge motivational factor for them to deliver.

Slovakia Key Player – Milan Skriniar

Azerbaijan face a tough double header in this international break as they face Slovakia followed by the group leaders. Failure to get a result could see them drop into that relegation spot.
