Belarus play host to Azerbaijan at the Karađorđe Stadium in Group C3 of the UEFA Nations League on Monday.

Both sides, who fell to defeat in their group openers, will be looking to bounce back and get their campaign up and running.

Belarus were denied a dream start to their Nations League campaign as they suffered a 1-0 loss against Slovenia on Friday.

Prior to that, they picked up three consecutive friendly victories, seeing off Jordan, India and Bahrain respectively.

Belarus head into Monday’s game on a run of just one win from their last six home games, losing five in that time.

Azerbaijan, meanwhile, were left empty-handed once again as they were beaten 2-0 by Kazakhstan in Friday’s group opener.

They have now lost each of their last three games, while they remain unbeaten in 11 consecutive games across all competitions.

Azerbaijan’s last win came back in June 2021, when they saw off Belarus 2-1 in a friendly fixture.

Belarus vs Azerbaijan Head-To-Head

This will be the fifth-ever meeting between the sides. Azerbaijan boast a slightly superior record in their previous four encounters, claiming two wins. Belarus have managed one win in that time, while the spoils have been shared once.

Belarus vs Azerbaijan Prediction

We expect Belarus and Azerbaijan to take the game to each other as they both look to make amends for their opening-day defeat. However, we are backing the hosts to return to winning ways and see off Azerbaijan, who have failed to taste victory since last June.
