LUXEMBOURG VS AZERBAIJAN PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Luxembourg is quite surprised, only 4 points behind Portugal and Bosnia but played less than 1 match. Solid defensive play and resilient spirit have been maintained by Luc Holtz’s army for more than a year. They even beat Ireland 1-0 at home with Roddrigues’ 85th-minute goal. Third place in the table is completely deserved, Luxembourg only lost 1 match to Portugal. The ability to keep a clean sheet against Azerbaijan is not a problem, especially when they are playing at home. With excitement, a gentle victory is completely within Luxembourg’s ability.
Azerbaijan hasn’t got any points yet but their performance is not bad especially in defense. The game is built on a disciplined defense, Azerbaijan only conceded 3 goals after 2 matches even though they have to face Portugal and Serbia, the two strongest teams in Group A. The quality of the squad, as well as the national championship, is not appreciated, but reasonable tactics make Azerbaijan an unpleasant opponent. The scoring performance is low, only 0.5 goals per game, but shows a very pragmatic style of play. With what has been shown, it is not surprising if the next match ends with few goals.
Both have a defensive and very pragmatic style of play, it is difficult to hope for an open game. The last 3/4 meetings of this match have ended with Under results, 2 matches have a score of 0-0.
Select: Under 2 FT.
Luxembourg is more appreciated by home advantage and competitive motivation. Azerbaijan is still empty-handed after the first 2 rounds, it is understandable that they do not put too much emphasis on the goal. The other side of Luxembourg is hoping to compete for second place in the table as well as a better head-to-head record. 4 official meetings in the past, the home team is unbeaten, including 1 victory.
Luxembourg’s recent form can be completely trusted with a 1-0 victory over Ireland. Even when facing strong teams like Scotland, Norway or Qatar, they only lost at least 0-1, the performance was convincing enough. Azerbaijan does not have such stability, in the last 6 matches they suffered 5 defeats, most recently a 0-1 loss to Moldova. Obviously, the gap in the level of Azerbaijan compared to the general level is still very significant. With active preparation, victory for students of Luc Holtz is a reliable choice.
Select: Luxembourg FT.
European odds appreciate the homeowner’s chances of winning. Luxembourg’s stability makes this option worthy of trust. Azerbaijan does not have much motivation to hope to make things happen.
