Still speaking about Group C, we will analyze one of the most disappointing teams in the qualifiers so far. The Czech failed to score in their first two games of the group, only won a single point and seem far from the team we saw as favorites for second place.
Meanwhile, Azerbaijan won both their games with 1-0 – thus sitting on 6 points. How will the game between the two teams play out?
Czech Republic vs Azerbaijan – 11/10/2016
Since the Czech play at home, they will rely on their fans to push them towards victory. Of course, they have to start scoring in order to win points.
Sadly for them, their current generation is far from the value of that which was close to a Euro final in 2004, and are now struggling to qualify for final tournaments.
Vaclav Kadlec was once seen as one of the most promising strikers in Europe, and although he hasn’t lived up to the hype, is still the person to look at to lead this team to victory.
Meanwhile, the Azeri won unconvincingly against San Marino (only 1-0) but a lot better against Norway, despite winning with the same scoreline.
They didn’t enjoy much possession or lots of shots, but at the end of the day, the points are the only thing that matters.
A draw in the Czech Republic will leave them sitting with 7 points after their first three games – a great feat on which they can build on in the future.
Czech Republic vs Azerbaijan Betting Tips
The main idea we have for this game is simple: despite their good form, the Azeri can’t rely on luck forever and won’t win. Furthermore, the Czech team will score sooner or later, so 1X is the sure bet – and a solo home win is to be expected.
Also, the game probably won’t have lots of goals and under 3,5 is quite a good idea, since 1-0, 1-1 or 2-1 are the most probable scorelines. Best of luck!
