Kosovo vs Azerbaijan
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 22:45 EAT
Venue: Stadiumi Fadil Vokkri (Prishtina).
A real buzz is expected in and around Stadiumi Fadil Vokkri in Prishtina on Tuesday night when Kosovo host Azerbaijan in the direct clash for the top spot in the Group 3. The hosts took the maximum advantage from the entire Nations League concept to get on the brink of the semi-final in League D.
They took eight points from opening four games. The team held it out to a 1-1 draw away at Faroe Islands last month to back up the easy straightforward 3-0 victory over Malta. The left-winger Milot Rashica was the one who bagged team’s only goal in Torshavn.
Kosovo have previously won each of two home outings in the group which gives them a nice chance to hope to stay unbeaten in the last round clash against the strongest rival in the round robin phase.
Kosovo vs Azerbaijan: Head-to-head
This will only be the second head to head encounter between the two teams.
They shared spoils in a goalless draw at Baku Olimpiya Stadyumu back at the start of the inaugural Nations League campaign in September.
Azerbaijan were the dominant side on the pitch on the occasion, but they just failed to break the deadlock.
Kosovo vs Azerbaijan: Prediction
The visitors also come into November’s final set of fixtures unbeaten, but they drew as many as three of four games so far. Qurban Qurbanov’s men slipped up in two clashes with group underdogs Malta who held them to two separate 1-1 draws.
They showed strength in the previous away fixture beating Faroe Islands 0-3 on the road. Astana’s Richard Almeyda notched a brace back then and he is expected to be team0s driving force in this crucial Nations League affair.
These two likes are very similar in terms of quality and we expect a close contest to be decided by one or even none goals. The Under 2.5 goals FT is by far the best of betting options.
