Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Tofiq Bahramov Stadium will host Monday’s Euro 2024 qualifier between Azerbaijan and Austria. The Austrians are with one foot at the next year’s European Championship finals, but boss Ralph Rangnick must warn his men against complacency. All Alaba, Arnautovic, Onisiwo, Gregoritsch, Posch, and Mwene should miss out with injuries, while Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marcel Sabitzer is pushing for a start.
The former Soviet republic, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Estonia and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their four-game winless run in Group F. As both sides should be happy with one point from Monday’s qualifier, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Austria.
Highlighted Team (Azerbaijan):
Azerbaijan footballers were playing for Soviet Union national team from 1920 to 1991. In 1991 Azerbaijan gained its independence and they have been competing on the international stage ever since. The Azeri have yet to qualify for the finals of a major tournament, but they have been producing fine performances ever since Robert Prosinecki took over the reins.
On September 17, 1992 the Milli suffered a 6-3 loss to Georgia in their first international match and seven years later they recorded their biggest win, with the team beating Liechtenstein 4-0 in front of home fans in Baku. The Azerbaijan national football team wear blue shirts and blue shorts when playing at home ground, while the colour of their away kit is red.
Gurban Gurbanov is the most capped played (68) and the legendary attacker, who played for Azerbaijan from 1992 to 2005), scored 14 goals for the national team. It has to be noted that the former Soviet republic play their home matches at Baku Olympic Stadium, which was opened on March 6, 2015.
