Former Azerbaijan coach Agaselim Mirjavadov has been assessing the national side's chances in Group H, which they started with a 2-1 home defeat against Bulgaria, and with games against Croatia and Norway to come next month.
"If we wanted to claim third place, we should have beaten Bulgaria at home," said Mirjavadov. "We can probably hope for a positive outcome in the matches against Norway and Malta. I don't think we're capable of taking points against Italy and Croatia, but we have to battle with them as well."
