Total goals under 3.5

It is quite easy to come across suggestions of a high-scoring game where Portugal could blitz past the opponents. However, Azerbaijan come into the match with four consecutive clean sheets, while Portugal will be keen on three points rather than a huge win to start the World Cup qualifiers. The home team might have to encounter a very defensive approach from the visitors. The travel restrictions are also likely to take the edge off Portugal’s game.

Cristiano Ronaldo to score 1st

Ronaldo is the undisputed supremo when it comes to scoring goals for Portugal and his 100+ international goals are a testament. The Juventus star is unlikely to be rested for this game. He has been on good form for a while with seven goals in as many games.

Diogo Jota to score anytime

Diogo Jota went through an injury spell a few months ago, but he is now back and firing on all cylinders. The Liverpool forward scored just coming into the international break. The overall scoring form that Jota has experienced this season may not be great, but he is a confidence-player who tends to go on scoring patches.

Portugal vs Azerbaijan: Preview and Team News

Portugal

Portugal come into the game with a large squad that features Premier League stars like Joao Cancelo and Bruno Fernandes along with the superstar in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Euro 2016 champions might make some changes to the starting line-up considering the strength of the opponent. Coach Fernando Santos will also be pleased to witness Cristiano Ronaldo continue his impressive form for the national team. Standing at 102 goals in 170 appearances, Ronaldo is undoubtedly an icon, but he has scored just one international goal since October.

Azerbaijan

Giovanni De Biasi will take charge of his eighth match as the Azerbaijan manager. He will be hoping for a better performance out of his team, who have been involved in consecutive goalless draws. The narrow 1-0 win over Cyprus in September is the only win for the 64-year-old since being appointed as the coach in July. Still, the four consecutive clean sheets will be a huge positive for the team ranked 108th in the FIFA rankings.
