Worth mentioning: Bahrain are undefeated in the regular time of their last eight matches, losing only to South Korea after extra-time in a game part of the Asian Cup. None of Bahrain’s last ten meetings was won by the side listed as hosts, as the visitors were victorious on six occasions and four times there was no winner. None of the teams involved in those 10 matches were able to score more than once, and understandably they all produced under 2,5 goals, while only three saw both nations scoring.
Azerbaijan are without a victory in their last seven outings, and recorded just two draws in the process. Despite their poor form, in their most recent game, the country managed to pull a surprise, as they earned a point from their home meeting with World Cup silver medalists from Croatia. Three of Azerbaijan’s last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals, while each of the last four witnessed goals at both ends.
