GOOD EVEN FROM JUVENTUS STADIUM
Good evening and welcome back to our live coverage of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers between Portugal and Azerbaijan. The road to Qatar begins now.
We are delighted to see what Portugal can produce as they kick off their qualifying campaign and will Cristiano Ronaldo come closer to Ali Daei’s all-time record of 109 international goals?
The last time the two teams met was in 2013, where Portugal dominated with a 2-0 world qualifying win in Baku and with Portugal beating Azerbaijan five times earlier.
We won’t see Rui Patricio playing for Portugal after suffering a head injury while playing for Wolves against Liverpool. Likely instead, we’ll see Anthony Lopes score tonight.
Azerbaijan captain Maksim Medvedev arrived at his team’s camp late for personal reasons but is expected to start in Turin.
We are also delighted to see what upcoming players Joao Felix for Portugal and Qara Qarayev for Azerbaijan will have to offer tonight.
The match started at 19:45 in England and Portugal, 8:45 in Italy and 11:45 in Azerbaijan.
