Both nations beat non-UEFA underdogs on Friday and will now battle to see who will come out on top from this four-team section.

Azerbaijan flattered to deceive in their opening game of this international break, only edging past 66-1 outsiders Mongolia by a single goal to nil.

The Asian nation are one of the poorest in the AFC confederation, having already been knocked out of World Cup qualifying by Afghanistan and recently suffering a 14-0 defeat to Japan.

However, starting 2024 with a win is a positive nonetheless, as Azerbaijan will look to replicate the sort of form they showed at the end of 2022, when they won five in a row before coming up against much superior opposition for most of last year.

However, they will need to secure a first-ever victory over Bulgaria if they are to continue on the right path heading into the UEFA Nations League in the autumn.

Meanwhile, a victory over Tanzania on Friday was a good start for Bulgaria, but that was expected of Ilian Iliev’s side, as the win over the African nation was their first in 18 months.

Kiril Despodov got the only goal for the Lavovete, but it was still a hugely underwhelming performance from Bulgaria, who had just 35% possession on the evening and created few clear opportunities. After finishing bottom of their Euro 2024 qualifying group below Lithuania, vast improvement is needed.

Drawing 2-2 in their final two qualifiers against Hungary and Serbia, only missing out on victory by late equalisers in both, seemed to be a step in the right direction, but after Friday’s performance, this game will take on even more importance.

Azerbaijan vs. Bulgaria Head to head

In the three previous meetings between these two teams, Bulgaria have claimed two victories while they have drawn on one occasion.

Azerbaijan Team News

After handing a debut to 20-year-old stopper Rza Cafarli against Mongolia, Arif Asadov may reinstate Shahruddin Mahammadaliyev in the Azerbaijan goal for this match.

Mahammadaliyev is set to feature behind three of his former Qarabag teammates too, with Elvin Cafarquliyev likely to keep current club mate Toral Bayramov out at left-back.
