Portugal vs Azerbaijan Match Preview and Live Stream

Portugal are here to win things and they showed their pedigree in UEFA Euro 2016, where they went all the way and beat France in the final. The country has produced a long line of talented footballers- from the great Eusebio to Cristiano Ronaldo. They now have the taste of winning on the big stage, and their eyes would be fixated on nothing less than the winner’s medal in Qatar next year.

Azerbaijan have always been the punching bag of whatever group they have been put in alongside other European teams. While Portugal are the favourites to qualify from this group, it is safe to say that the Azerbaijanis have no chance at qualification at all. The two teams have played each other 8 times before, with Portugal winning 7. The only goal scored by Azerbaijan vs Portugal came in a 1-1 draw in 1999.

Portugal vs Azerbaijan Match Prediction

Portugal will make this match a one-sided encounter with their elite attack. Fernando Santos will undoubtedly field a weaker Portugal side but they would still have more than enough to beat any team that Azerbaijan put out on the day. We go with a 4-0 win for Portugal, which would be more comfortable than their 1-0 win in the reverse fixture earlier this year.
