World Cup Qualifiers Sure Tips

PORTUGAL VS AZERBAIJAN

Home comforts have been removed in this now Turin-held fixture, but Portugal boast a 100% win rate across their previous nine FIFA World Cup Qualification (WCQ) games. They netted 3+ times in six of those games. They've also prevailed in seven of their previous ten matches overall (W7, D2, L1), within which they 'won both halves' on six occasions.

Furthermore, the average margin from Portugal's last eight WCQ victories vs sides from Pot 5 / Pot E or lower is 2.88 goals. Each of the last three games therein played on foreign soil saw Portugal score exactly twice (for a precise 2-0 second-half win) beyond the hour mark. In turn, six of those eight games saw at least 50% of the match goals come after HT.

With just one win in ten matches (WI, D4, L5), Azerbaijan look like a doomed outfit already. FIFA's joint 108th-ranked team drew a blank on eight occasions across that sequence, but they may take some comfort from knowing that no side netted over 2.5 goals against them.
