Azerbaijan vs Kazakhstan Match Analysis and Prediction – Sports Betting Tricks


Kazakhstan head into their UEFA Nations League encounter with Azerbaijan on Sunday having already secured promotion to the second tier for the first time in their history.

While qualification is out of reach for Azerbaijan, the hosts will be motivated to try to earn the win which would see them secure a second spot in Group C4.

Azerbaijan are not in a position where they are able to catch their visitors, but they will already be content with their own campaign.

Last time out, they picked up six points from as many matches, something which they have bettered with seven points from a game fewer.

Their second win in succession on Thursday also represented their most notable for many years, Azerbaijan scoring a last-gasp winner to claim a 2-1 victory in Slovakia.

Renat Dadashov, formerly contracted to Wolverhampton Wnderers, and Hojjat Haghverdi each scored their first international goals to seal a memorable victory in Trnava.

Kazakhstan kicked off the latest UEFA Nations League campaign with hope rather than expectation with Slovakia part of their group.

However, they have been excellent throughout, picking up 13 points from five matches to secure promotion to League B with a game to spare.

Two narrow victories over the group favourites have ultimately made the difference, but it set up  Magomed Adiyev’s side to get over the line against bottom-palced Belarus on Thursday.

Although the Hawks did not have it all their own way, being pegged back by half time, Bakhtoyar Zaynutdinov’s late goal secured a 2-1 victory in Astana.

Kazakhstan can now head into this encounter with no pressure on their shoulders, although the desire to extend their unbeaten run to six games will provide some motivation. Adiyev will be hoping to lead his side to bounce back from a 1-1 draw with Belarus in their last away game.

Azerbaijan news

Azerbaijan will be without Richard Almeyda after he picked up his second yellow card of the competition in the game against Slovakia.

Aleksey Isayev could get the nod in his place, but that could prove to be the only change if head coach Gianni De Biasi insists on naming a full-strength squad.

Kazakhstan news

Kazakhstan head into the contest with two suspension issues of their own, with Zaynutdinov and Askhat Tagybergen both missing out on Sunday.

Elkhan Astanov and Islambek Kuat appear most likely to come into the starting XI, with further changes possible if Adiyev wishes to take a look at other players.

Prediction and Odds

With the stakes having lowered for Kazakhstan, they are not likely to perform with the same kind of intensity they have been carried through their matches so far.

That said, we expect the teams to play out a draw, with the two sides having secured results above their expectations during this campaign.

Odds: 2.30 2.05 2.22
