Our prediction for this match:
Slovenia will be aiming to extend their winning run to five games when they take on Azerbaijan in Ljubljana on Wednesday. The Zmajceki were impressive in the October fixtures even though Josip Ilicic was out of contention due to personal reasons. The Atalanta ace returns to contention for the November games, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the 32-year-old when Slovenia face Azerbaijan in a friendly.
Yet another good news for the hosts is that Sporting attacker Andraz Sporar has overcome his injury. Azerbaijan, on the other hand, failed to find the net in the previous two group games in the Nations League, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. It has to be noted that the two national teams have never met before on the international stage. The good news for the visitors is that Mahir Emreli returns from injury.
