Azerbaijan have proven to be a tough team to beat at home and Norway will face a big test on Sunday evening when they travel to Azerbaijan for a key Euro2016 qualifier. Norway have won two from three in qualifying their only loss coming against Italy which to be fair is to be expected. While Norway may be more famous for skiing and ice skating there are some great young players playing with Norway and moving to the best leagues in the world with Daeli plying his trade at Cardiff one of the new generation of Norway starlets. This is a tough game for the visitors as although Norway are expected to win Azerbaijan do not concede too many and have proven to be capable of springing the occasional shock in qualifying.
Dimitri Nazarov and Aliyez would look to be the main threat forAzerbaijan going forward, indeed the former is plying his trade in Germany with Karsruher and is attracting attention from some Bundesliga clubs. As with many of the minnows in Euro qualifying Azerbaijan have a solid defence and will be hoping to frustrate Norway with solid defence and hit them on the counter when the opportunity arises.

What should be a lowscoring affair may be decided by a solitary goal. All five of Azerbaijan's home games in World cup Qualifying was under 2.5 goals, four of the last five have also been under. I think this could very well end up as a draw but I like the under more, the draw is a decent value price at 5/2 but I like the unders just a tad more.
