Azerbaijan vs. Wales Match Analysis and Prediction

The Euro 2020 qualifiers Group E 4th placed Wales will be traveling this weekend to Azerbaijan to try their luck in the Euro 2020. Wale still has better chances of qualifying for the Euro 2020. This match between Azerbaijan vs. Wales will take place on Saturday 16th November 2019 at the Bakcell Arena in Baku starting from 17:00GMT.

Back to back wins against the likes of Azerbaijan and Hungary will see Ryan Giggs’ troops make a direct entry to the Euro 2020. However, his is easier said than done. The Dragons have no other option than to give their hearts out during this fixture if they ever dream of making the cut to the European Championships finals next year. Two losses against Hungary and Croatia and 2 draws against Slovakia and Croatia are what have put pressure on Wales. However, the Dragons did well to beat Azerbaijan (earlier on) and Slovakia. In total, Wales has 8 points, trailing Croatia, Hungary, and Slovakia who have 14, 12 and 10 points respectively.

Azerbaijan, on the other hand, has nothing to play for on Saturday afternoon, other than to spoil the party for the Dragons. With only one point from 6 fixtures; thanks to a draw against Croatia, the doors for Euro 2020 are already closed for the tiny nation.

With Gareth Bale having recuperated in time to steer his team to victory, we believe Wales has better chances of moving closer to the Euro 2020 Championship. The combination of Gareth Bale and Manchester United’s Daniel James will prove a very handful for the travelers.

Wales has many players of international status. With Ryan Giggs expected to use the 4-3-3 formation, we believe Gareth Bale and Daniel James will be assisted by Harry Wilson in the attacking. Hennessy will take his place at the goal post while Davies, Lawrence, Mephan and Gunter will ensure the goalpost is well protected. Ampadu, Valks, and Allen will seal the midfield.

Azerbaijan, on the other hand, is likely to employ a defensive play. Aghayev will keep the goal post safe while being protected by Medvedev, Krivotsyuk, Mammadov, and Rahimov. The midfield will have the likes of Eyybov, Garayev, and Almeida. Their attacking force will be Abbdullayev, Sheydayev, and Ramazanov.
