Slovakia vs Azerbaijan – Since Slovakia and Azerbaijan are both positioned in the middle of their respective groups, their chances of being promoted are currently only speculative.
However, there is no point in giving up, and they must also take precautions to avoid being demoted at the end of the season. Both teams had issues on defence during the course of the current season.
Both clubs concede many goals, whether they are playing at home or away. With the group stage campaign ready to enter its last stretch, pressure will only increase.
This Thursday, Slovakia will play in front of their own supporters, but this does not give them any more confidence. They currently have a 100% losing home record in the competition, which is the reason.
Azerbaijan, meanwhile, is ranked second-to-last on the table and has a winless record of 100% thus far without recording a single victory. And it is really alarming that Belarus, who was ranked dead bottom, was the opponent for this lone triumph.
Additionally, the squad has a 100% winless road record, and most crucially, goals have been plentiful anytime these two teams have faced off in the past. The way things are going, we can probably expect another high-scoring match between the two teams on Thursday.
Slovakia vs Azerbaijan – Betting Analysis
The most recent match resulted in a 0-1 victory for Slovakia. Four or more goals were scored in two of the last five matches. In three of the previous five games, Slovakia scored two goals or more.
It has been twenty years since Azerbaijan has achieved victory. Slovakia had a losing skid of two games and had failed to win ten of their previous 15 games in total.
Additionally, they haven’t managed to win in front of their own fans since March of the previous year, and as of 2022, they have a 100% home losing record.
Azerbaijan, on the other hand, had lost 33 of their previous 37 games overall and had gone on two distinct 2-game losing streaks, two separate 3-fixture losing streaks, and three separate 4-match losing streaks during that time. Taking into account these insights expect goals to come in plenty from either end of the pitch this Thursday.
