We offer a forecast for the League of Nations match, in which Cyprus will host the Azerbaijani national team on September 8. What to expect from this duel? – the answer is in our material.
The Cyprus national team failed the qualifying tournament for Euro 2020, where they finished only fourth, losing to the second Russia by as much as 14 points. For 10 rounds, the islanders were able to win only three victories and ended one fight in peace. The Cypriots have scored 15 goals, but conceded on average two goals per game.
In the last four matches, Johan Valem’s players have lost, including the debut match of the League of Nations with the national team of Montenegro (0: 2), for which we made a forecast. It should be recalled that in the first drawing of this tournament the hosts took only the third position in the group.
Azerbaijan became the second team in the first draw of the League of Nations, in which it lost five points to Kosovo. Then the ” land of fires ” won two victories and ended three games in a draw, while hitting the opponent’s goal only seven times. The team completely failed the qualification for Euro 2020, gaining only one point in eight matches.
The guests spent the start of the new LN season at home and could not do anything with the rather mediocre Luxembourg national team (1: 2).
Both opponents lost their last four matches
Cyprus has lost 5 of its last 7 home games
Azerbaijan lost 5 of 6 last head-to-head matches
Azerbaijan managed to score only one goal in the last four matches
At least three goals have been scored in 4 of the last 5 matches of Cyprus
Opponents will play their first face-to-face match in history
Today the teams that lost in the first matches meet. The teams’ play is difficult to somehow evaluate, given the fact that the series of defeats are already going through the roof, while the line of attack looks just depressing.
What is worse than an attack is the line of defense, which it passes on a regular basis, which we today propose to use.
Our prediction is that the total is over 2 goals and we bet on it using the Winline bookmaker’s line with odds 1.92
