Tip Reasoning

Can Azerbaijan keep their hopes of topping this group alive with three points on Saturday? They head into this meeting with the Faroe Islands aiming to keep the pressure on surprise leaders Kosovo, with things looking pretty tight in Group D3. The hosts are pushing for a second win of their Nations League campaign, with their first success in this competition coming in the reverse fixture last month. Given how the visitors have fallen four points off the top, a win for the hosts would be hugely valuable.

Azerbaijan have big ambitions for their future in football, and they are set to play a part at Euro 2020. While they need to win this group to secure a play-off spot at the tournament, the hosts know that their stadium in Baku will play host to matches at the finals. They’d be playing at home if they could make it to the Euros, so that’s a huge prize for the hosts to try and earn in the coming days. Will they be able to claim the six points they need to guarantee their place at the top?

The Faroes need a lot of results to go their way to finish top, with Kosovo set to move out of their reach with a victory on Saturday. The visitors have made strides in international football in recent years, so they’re likely to be disappointed to finish third from bottom in this group. Their solitary victory came at home to Malta in the opening game, and since then the Faroes have struggled for results. Will their woes continue ahead of this trip across Europe?

The visitors have lost two of their last three games in this group, losing away to the Faroes and at home to Azerbaijan. They’ve got real issues on the road, having lost four of their last five away trips. Their only game without a defeat was a 0-0 draw at Andorra, so we aren’t putting a lot of faith in the visitors getting a result in Saturday’s clash.

The hosts were able to claim a win in their trip to the Faroes last month, and they’ve remained unbeaten in this group so far. They should continue that run with another three points, and set up a crunch tie with Kosovo in a few days time. With the visitors in awful form on their travels, we’re backing a home win on Saturday, along with a 2-0 success for Azerbaijan.
