Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Azerbaijan and Cyprus face each other at Elbasan Arena in what is expected to be a close encounter. Azerbaijan have been having their ups and downs in the Nations League, with the team beating Cyprus, while losing to Luxembourg and Montenegro. The Azeri aim to get back on course in Group 1, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Cyprus. The bad news for the visitors is that Qarabag attacker Mahir Emreli remains on the sidelines with injury.
The Cypriotes, on the other hand, are on a seven-game losing run in all competitions ahead of the trip to Baku. Johan Walem’s men are eager to give fans something to cheer about, and given Azerbaijan’s form, we believe that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Elbasan Arena. In their only previous meeting in the Nations League Azerbaijan defeated Cyprus 1-0.
