THE PREDICTION

Azerbaijan’s defensive solidity is shown both on the international stage and in their club football with the success of Qarabag in European competition being built upon low-scoring matches. That was reflected once again in the Azeri’s 1-1 draw against Ireland last month. Stephen Kenny’s spell as Ireland manager has been really poor as he looks to impose a progressive style of play upon the Irish. The visitors have scored more than one goal in a match on just two occasions in their last 18 - a 3-2 defeat against Serbia and 4-1 win against Andorra. Given that, under 2.5 goals seems a likely bet for this one.
