Azerbaijan made a fantastic start to qualification with a couple of 1-0 wins over San Marino and more impressively Norway, followed by a third clean sheet in a goalless stalemate with the Czech Republic. However, they’ve conceded eight goals in their last two games in Group C, losing 4-0 when they travelled to Belfast back in November.
Northern Ireland remain undefeated and are in pole position for the runners-up spot behind Germany, and they’ve asserted their dominance over the weaker teams with a pair of 4-0 wins over both Azerbaijan and San Marino, though both these results came on home soil. On the road they’ve been less spectacular, drawing four of five unbeaten games, though the standard of opposition was far higher than they’ll face here whilst their sole defeat came against Germany.
Northern Ireland have shown great defensive resolve, conceding just twice so far in Group C, and their results on the road have consistently produced low scoring games with 14 of their last 16 away matches featuring fewer than three strikes. However, at 1.46 under 2.5 goals holds little value, with the Northern Ireland win at 2.3 far more tempting, especially as they’ve won each of their last six against teams outside the world’s top 70 (we have Azerbaijan ranked 94th).
