Belgium aiming to top Group F with victory over Azerbaijan
1488

Belgium will be looking to preserve their unbeaten record in Group F when they host Azerbaijan in Euro 2024 qualifying on Sunday.

With one match remaining, the Belgians sit two points behind first-placed Austria in Group F, meaning they will finish atop the standings if they triumph this weekend.

While Belgium have already punched their ticket to Euro 2024, Azerbaijan cannot qualify for the tournament as they find themselves 10 points outside the top two.

Following a disappointing group-stage exit from the World Cup, Belgium have enjoyed a marked upturn under the guidance of Domenico Tedesco.

Indeed, the Red Devils have avoided defeat in each of their last nine games across all competitions, picking up seven wins and two draws along the way.

In Euro 2024 qualifying, Belgium have registered five wins and two draws, scoring 17 goals (2.4 goals per game) while conceding on just four occasions.

Having avoided defeat in each of their previous 21 European Championship qualifiers, the Red Devils will back themselves to top the group this weekend.

As for Azerbaijan, they claimed an impressive 3-0 victory over Sweden on Thursday, despite seeing just 36% possession while conceding 18 shots.

A brace from Emin Mahmudov helped the hosts secure a memorable win last time out, and they even managed to cope after Bahlul Mustafazada’s 57th-minute red card.

It is worth remembering, however, that Azerbaijan have won just two of their seven Euro 2024 qualifiers, suffering four defeats in the process.

To make matters worse, they have conceded 12 goals during the campaign, scoring only seven in reply. That makes Belgium firm favourites this weekend.

Head-to-head: Belgium have avoided defeat in each of their five previous meetings with Azerbaijan, picking up four wins and one draw since 2006.

The aggregate scoreline in this fixture stands at 10-2 in favour of the Red Devils, meaning the visitors will struggle to buck that trend on Sunday.

Team news: Belgium’ squad is stacked with big-name players, including Romelu Lukaku, Jeremy Doku, Lois Openda, Leandro Trossard and Yannick Carrasco.

Azerbaijan defender Bahlul Mustafazada is suspended after receiving a red card in midweek, with Hojjat Haghverdi expected to come into the backline.

Given that Belgium have the incentive of topping Group F with a win on Sunday, the Red Devils are expected to cruise to victory on home soil.

Forebet predicts that Belgium will score over 2.5 goals against Azerbaijan, with the hosts also expected to keep a clean sheet.
