Wales vs Azerbaijan Match Preview

Wales manager Ryan Giggs will know this is a must-win game – not only for hopes of Euro 2020 qualification but also potentially his own future in the job.

The Manchester United legend’s record in charge of his national team over the last 20 months can only be described as average with five wins, seven defeats and one draw in his 13 games at the helm – and there have already been calls in some sections of the fanbase for him to go.

Giggs is highly unlikely to be sacked mid-contract and the Football Association of Wales will surely grant him a crack at trying to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. But a Euro 2020 place is already starting to slip away and failure to beat Azerbaijan would only ramp up the pressure, with Chris Coleman having been a very difficult act to follow given the success he enjoyed.

After successive defeats in Croatia and Hungary, Wales need to lift themselves back into the thick of the Group E fight and they are vying with not only those countries but also Slovakia for two berths in next summer’s tournament.

Azerbaijan have lost three out of three so far to show they are the makeweights in the group and that only reinforces the argument that this is a game in which the Dragons simply cannot afford to slip up.

They should win, but Wales have been anything but free-scoring of late – all of their last seven matches have finished either 1-0 or 2-1 – and it could be a nervy night for Giggs.
