The Irish are well and truly out of contention for qualification to the big stage next summer but that doesn’t mean they’ll give anything less against Azerbaijan. And Alley Sport brings you the Ireland predicted lineup vs Azerbaijan, Preview, Latest Team News, Prediction and Live Stream from this 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Group A game.

Ireland vs Azerbaijan Preview and Livestream

Ireland are not doing well in the group stages at all. Despite having a decent collection of players, Stephen Kenny has seen his team falter time and again during the qualifiers. With just 3 points from 6 games, there is no way that the Irish can qualify for the main event in Qatar next summer. And that would come as a massive disappointment considering the group they were given.

With Luxembourg, Serbia, Azerbaijan and Qatar (already qualifying as hosts) apart from Portugal, the favourites in Group A, Ireland had a big chance to return on the World Cup stage. Instead, they have drawn thrice and lost thrice in their six games, including a disastrous draw at home to their next opponents. Azerbaijan are one of the weakest sides in the competition but they have shown that they can get a result against teams such as Republic of Ireland in recent past.

Ireland vs Azerbaijan Prediction

Ireland are good on paper regardless of their rancid form. Azerbaijan will be at home but Kenny’s men have enough firepower to not gift Azerbaijan a draw this around. We go with a slender 2-1 away win for the visitors in Baku as they look to play for pride after not being in the fray for World Cup qualification.
