Azerbaijan vs Wales Match Preview
Wales know that only two victories in their final qualifiers will give them any chance of reaching Euro 2020 automatically – and even then it may not be enough.
Four of the five countries in Group E are still in the mix to finish in the all-important top two and secure places at next summer’s tournament, with Croatia and Hungary currently holding sway. Croatia will be through if they avoid defeat at home to Slovakia on Saturday.
So, essentially, it looks like one out of Hungary, Slovakia and Wales. The bookmakers slightly fancy the chances of Slovakia, who finish at home to Azerbaijan on Tuesday, rather than Wales gaining a crucial six points from their games in Baku and at home to Hungary.
In terms of the play-offs, if they do not make it by right, Wales should be among the participants in the Group B division, but they still need to hope that at least one of the teams above them in the seeding ranking qualifies automatically in order to free up a place.
As you can tell, it’s still very much up in the air for Ryan Giggs’ side, but they are fancied to emulate their victory over Azerbaijan at home in September when Gareth Bale scored a hugely important late winner.
Azerbaijan surprisingly held Croatia to a home draw in September, but that is the only point they have collected in this group and with Bale ready to shake off the calf injury that has ruled him out of Real Madrid duty recently to play here, Wales are backed to win narrowly.
