With both teams seeking to pick up their first wins in Group C3 of the UEFA Nations League, Azerbaijan and Belarus will square off at the Dalga Arena on Monday.

Belarus are third in the group standings, while Azerbaijan are rooted to the bottom of the pile after picking up only a point from a possible nine.

Azerbaijan were at the receiving end of a 1-0 defeat against Slovakia on Friday.

They have now failed to win their three games in the Nations League, picking up a draw and two losses.

Azerbaijan have now failed to taste victory in 13 games stretching back to a 2-1 win over Belarus in June 2021.

Meanwhile, like their hosts, Belarus were denied their first win in the Nations League, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Kazakhstan last time out.

They have now picked up only two points from a possible nine to sit third in the Group C3 standings.

Belarus head into Monday on a two-match winning streak away from home, though, and will look to keep that run going.

Azerbaijan vs Belarus Head-To-Head
