Slovakia will be faced with Azerbaijan on UEFA Nations League League C Group 3 on Thursday.
Slovakia have been relegated from second tier after getting four points only. However, on League C, although they managed to beat Belarus and Azerbaijan both 1-0 on the road, they lost to Kazakhstan twice. Now they rank 2nd on group table with 6 points only. To be mentioned, Kazakhstan will host Belarus a few hours earlier than this game. Once Kazakhstan successfully defeats Belarus, it will be useless for Slovakia to win this game, so the team's morale possibly depends on the result of Kazakhstan VS Belarus.
Azerbaijan have only picked up 1 win, 1 draw and 2 loss in the previous four rounds, ranking second to the last now and only 2 points above of Belarus. Their only winning result is the 2-0 home victory over Belarus last round.
The difference in strength between these two teams is still relatively large, I will follow the odds to support Slovakia here. Also, judging from the weak attack in the previous rounds, there should not be many goals.
Pick: Slovakia to win
O/U Pick: Under 2.5 goals
