Belarus vs Azerbaijan Tips and Prediction
Belarus would have wanted to have continued their winning streak with games in front of their own fans after three wins in a row.
However, due to Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, they were forced to relocate to a neutral location, with the games in question taking place behind closed doors.
The first of them took place on Friday, with Slovakia winning 1-0 in Serbia, with Tomas Suslov scoring the game-winning goal just after the hour mark.
With Belarus’ two additional so-called home matches coming up in the next week, Georgy Kondratyev will have his work cut out for him if his team is to make a surprise promotion bid.
Nearly a year ago to the day, these two teams clashed in an international friendly, with Azerbaijan coming out on top 2-1.
Azerbaijan has failed to win a single game in 11 attempts since then, with their two draws coming against the Republic of Ireland and Qatar.
Gianni De Biasi’s team has failed to score a single goal in three games since the turn of the year, losing to Malta, Latvia, and Kazakhstan.
On Friday, they were even at halftime with the visitors, but a double from Abat Aymbetov soon after the break gave the hosts a comfortable win. De Biasi may be pleased with a share of the spoils with two home games left after this match, but three points would put them in the frame for a surprising promotion.
Azerbaijan will fancy their chances of winning on neutral territory now that Belarus’ home advantage has been stripped away. Goals, on the other hand, are likely to be few and far between, therefore we expect a low-scoring stalemate in Serbia.
