Serbia will host Azerbaijan at the Stadio Rajko Mitic in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a narrow 1-0 away victory over Luxembourg on Saturday. Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic scored the match-winner midway through the second half.

Azerbaijan suffered a 3-0 home defeat to the Republic of Ireland on the same day. Callum Robinson scored a first-half brace to guide the visitors to all three points.

The defeat left Milli komanda rooted to the bottom of the table in Group A, with just one point garnered from six matches. Serbia currently lead the way at the summit on 14 points, one point ahead of Portugal having played one game more.

Serbia vs Azerbaijan Prediction

Serbia are heavy favorites for the game and will be looking to maintain their position at the summit with another win on home turf.

Azerbaijan simply do not have the quality to match the Eagles and will likely be deployed in a compact system to catch their hosts on the counter. Barring an unlikely upset, there should be only one winner here and we are backing Serbia to triumph comfortably.

Prediction: Serbia 2-0 Azerbaijan
