World Cup 2018 Qualifying
Northern Ireland vs Azerbaijan – a boring game from group C? Hardly! It’s a derby for second place, as incredible as that might sound, in a group which also features the Czech Republic and Norway.
It’s also a game between two teams which are perfectly balanced between them – 4 games so far, each team winning one with a 2-0 score, and two more draws. These are all ingredients for what we think will be a very entertaining game.

Currently, the British team sits on 4 points, won from a 4-0 victory over San Marino and a 0-0 draw against the Czech. They lost against Germany, but that hardly comes as a surprise to anyone, since the Germans are predicted to win the group easily.
N. Ireland will now host Azerbaijan and know that a win could put them in pole position for second place, which could lead to World Cup presence. They are relying on good football, set-plays, and a physical game to win the three points.
On the other hand, nobody predicted Azerbaijan to have 7 points from their first 3 games, yet here they are. Scoring two goals and conceding none, they beat both Norway and San Marino with the same 1-0 scoreline and drew the Czech in Prague.
We don’t know how much of this result can be attributed to good defending and how much to luck, but it’s clear that the team is overachieving at the moment. If they manage to avoid defeat again, who knows what they will be capable of.
Northern Ireland vs Azerbaijan Betting Tips
That being said, we don’t think that Northern Ireland can lose this game. Home crowd advantage plus some good form will lead to at least a draw, if not a home win.
1X is the safe bet, while a solo home win should be on the cards as well. A high odd bet is Northern Ireland to win and under 2,5 goals. Also, the goals bet can be taken separately – we can’t see this game being spectacular in any way.

As every four years, South America is one of the most dynamic regions, with lots of surprises and almost never the same nations finishing on first spots.
