Azerbaijan vs Estonia: Head to head statistics



Azerbaijan vs Estonia match preview

Group F’s two minnows aren’t likely to accumulate very many points, if any, from matches against the section’s top three, making their head-to-head encounters vitally important as both battle for points.

Safe to say, Azerbaijan didn’t make a brilliant start to this campaign back in March, smashed 4-1 by Austria in Linz before an even more emphatic 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Sweden in Stockholm.

The Milli komanda did enjoy three wins in Nations League C last year but, in terms of qualifiers, are now winless in 20, losing 18 of them.

The last time Azerbaijan were victorious in a qualifier was in September 2017, demolishing San Marino 5-1, so can Gianni De Biasi’s team change that fact in Bakı?

Estonia meantime are also yet to get off the mark in Group F, narrowly beaten 2-1 by Austria last time out.

Rauno Sappinen actually gave the visitors a shock lead at Raiffeisen Arena, with Austria snatching three points in the final minute of normal time.

So, which minnow will claim a rare victory at Dalğa Arena?

Azerbaijan team news

Emin Mahmudov is the star of this team, taking his tally to ten international goals by bagging the consolation in Austria in March.

Ramil Şeydayev, who’s scored nine time for his country will lead the line; he currently plays his club football for Buriram United who are the Thai League champions.

Ozan Kökçü, brother of Turkish international Orkun, will win just his fifth cap in midfield.

18 members of this squad play for one of the top three finishers in last season’s Azeri Premier League, namely Qarabağ, Sabah and Neftçi Bakı.

Estonia team news

Arsenal goalkeeper Karl Hein, who made his senior debut for the Gunners in November, has already earned 20 senior caps for his country, named man of the match following a goalless draw in Cardiff two years ago.

Konstantin Vassiljev, who’s 17 years old than Hein, will win his 151st cap in midfield.

Only one man has ever made more international appearance without ever featuring at a major tournament, and that is fellow-Estonian legend Martin Reim on 157.
