azerbaijan-malta150328pzcAzerbaijan collected their first three points in Group H of the European Qualifiers as they beat Malta 2-0 at the Tofig Bahramov Republican Stadium in Baku.

The hosts took just three minutes to forge ahead and for over an hour had the edge over Pietro Ghedin’s side. However towards the end of the game, the Maltese gained more confidence, putting their opponents under pressure. However a goal in added time killed any hopes of the Maltese earning something from this clash.

As expected, Malta coach Pietro Ghedin made four changes from the team which lost to Georgia as Andrew Hogg, Roderick Briffa, Paul Fenech and Alfred Effiong replaced Justin Haber, Bjorn Kristensen, Andrew Cohen and Jean Paul Farrugia in the starting line-up.
