Azerbaijan and the Republic of Ireland will face each other in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification this weekend. The UEFA Group A game will be held at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Baku and is scheduled to kick off at 5pm UK time on Saturday.

Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan are the whipping boys in the group, and there is no surprise to see him rooted to the foot of the table. Gianni De Biasi’s side have picked up just one point from their five games in Group A so far and have already been eliminated from the qualifying process.

De Biasi’s side went down 3-0 to Portugal at home in their last 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification UEFA Group A game. It followed a 1-1 draw with the Republic of Ireland away from home in Dublin.

Team News:

Mahir Emreli, Anton Krivotsyuk and Namiq Alasgarov could start for Azerbaijan.

Republic of Ireland

The Republic of Ireland are really struggling at the moment and are in real danger of getting eliminated from the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. They are fourth in Group A at the moment with just two points from five matches. 

Stephen Kenny’s side cannot finish at the top of the group and qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals directly. It is hard to see the Republic of Ireland finish second now, given that they are nine pints off second-placed Serbia at the moment.

Team News:

Troy Parrott could lead the line for the Republic of Ireland.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Azerbaijan have scored three goals in five qualifying games.
  • The Republic of Ireland have scored five goals in five qualifying games.
  • Azerbaijan have conceded nine goals in five qualifying matches.
  • The Republic of Ireland have conceded eight goals in five qualifying matches.
  • The Republic of Ireland and Azerbaijan drew 1-1 in Dublin in September.

Conclusion

Neither Azerbaijan nor the Republic of Ireland are playing well at the moment and are in poor form at the moment. A draw is very likely.

Prediction: Match to end in 0-0 draw

Best Odds: 11/2
