Another small section of the map will be filled in for Croatia and Azerbaijan, as they meet for the first time at senior international level in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group H.

Match background
• Croatia and Azerbaijan are meeting for the first time at senior level.

• Club sides from the two nations have met in four UEFA Champions League qualifiers: GNK Dinamo Zagreb eliminated Xäzär Länkäran FK in the 2007/08 first qualifying round, and Neftçi PFK in the 2011/12 second qualifying round. In both ties, Dinamo scored three goals at home and were held to a draw in Baku.

• In the nations' seven meetings in UEFA youth and age-limit competitions, Croatia have recorded six wins to Azerbaijan's one. Azerbaijan's lone victory was 2-1 in a UEFA European Under-17 Championship qualifying round mini-tournament in Rovinj, Croatia, on 25 October 2011. However, the most recent encounter in that list was a 7-1 win for Croatia, in an Under-19 qualifier on home soil in Sesvete on 31 October 2012.
