Azerbaijan to Win
Moldova enters this fixture at the Stadionul Zimbru to end their 19-match winless streak. In Azerbaijan, they have tough competitors, who stood toe-to-toe with Belarus in their last outing. Form is on the side of the visitors, who will be playing their international friendly in the current window. Maksim Medvedev and his teammates should be able to take home the bragging rights, while their hosts come to terms with playing together.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
The hosts' last two outings saw them concede 12 goals with just one in reply. However, except for these two fixtures, their last four matches have seen less than three goals. On the other hand, Azerbaijan have been involved in four successive matches where the Over 2.5 prediction has come true. With goals flowing in their recent outings, we expect Over 2.5 goals as they come face-to-face.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Azerbaijan have punched above their waists, scoring five goals in their last four outings. These goals have not come against fellow minnows but teams above them in the FIFA rankings. Their dismantling of Belarus despite going down shows the Gianni De Biasi's tactics are working. However, they have shown a tendency to concede and that trend should continue in this fixture. Moldova managed to get past Israel's defence in a 1-4 defeat and should be able to secure a consolatory goal in this meeting. However, word of caution as three of their last five meetings since 2005 have ended with a 0-0 scoreline.
Moldova vs Azerbaijan: Team News and Match Preview
Roberto Bordin has the tough task of arresting Moldova's decline. His men have struggled against every rival they have come across in the last couple of years, their last win coming 19 matches ago against Andorra in June of 2019. The squad is in dire need of a positive result and even a draw against Azerbaijan will be celebrated like a win. Captain Alexandru Epureanu completed a century of appearances in his last outing against Israel and Bordin will hope the team rallies around him as they begin their international engagements.
Since 2018, Azerbaijan have built up a habit of securing at least one victory every year. They claimed the scalp of Belarus in their last outing but Gianni De Biasi will want more from Maksim Medvedev and company. Azerbaijan were resilient at the back in the away trip and their two goals will surely incite confidence in their scoring prowess. With Moldova only scoring twice in their last ten fixtures, the odds are in their favour to make it two successive victories on the trot.
