Winless Azerbaijan, a team that has never qualified for the European championships since splitting from the former Soviet Union in 1992, will look to pull off a major upset at home when they host last year’s FIFA World Cup runners-up, Croatia.

Croatia is fighting to take over the top of the table in the 2020 UEFA qualifying Group E, as UEFA indicates. At the same time, they sit only three points ahead of Wales with four games left to play in the qualifying round, meaning that advancement to next year’s Euro group stage is far from guaranteed.

Croatia will try to take care of business against the struggling Azerbaijan side in the match that will stream live from Baku.

To find out how to watch a live online stream of the Azerbaijan vs. Croatia UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier Group E match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. Azerbaijan Time at the 11,000-seat Eighth Kilometer District Stadium, also known as Bakcell Arena, in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan, on Monday, September 9. In Croatia, the livestream will begin at 6 p.m. Central European Summer Time.

In the United Kingdom, the game gets underway at 5 p.m. British Summer Time on Monday. In the United States, kickoff will take place at noon ET, 9 a.m. PT. In India, the livestream gets underway starting at 9:30 p.m. on Monday evening, India Standard Time.

When the two teams met in the reverse fixture back in March, Azerbaijan put a scare into “The Chequered Ones” by jumping to a quick lead thanks to a 19th-minute goal by 23-year-old Ramil Şeydayev, per Soccerway. But an equalizer just before the half from Glasgow Rangers defender Borna Barišić, followed by an winner in the 79th minute by Hoffenheim star striker Andrej Kramarić, sealed the day for Croatia.

Azerbaijan have not defeated a higher-ranked team since 2016, when they scored a 1-0 upset over Norway in Baku, according to League Lane. Though Azerbaijan has faced Croatia three times, all in Euro qualifiers, without a win, they did hold Croatia to a nil-nil draw in the lone Baku fixture, perhaps giving them a ray of hope in the Monday match.
