Luxembourg won Thursday night in Azerbaijan (1-3) in a match that is very close to third place in its World Cup qualifying group. In numerical superiority, Luxembourg made the difference at the end of the match thanks in particular to a masterpiece by Gerson Rodrigues. With 9 points after seven days, Luxembourg broke its point record in qualifying for a major competition.
Author of a solid start to the match, Luxembourg took the upper hand over Azerbaijan, which they had already beaten (2-1), in September, for the first match at the Stade de Luxembourg. Gerson Rodrigues created the first opportunity for a slightly soft shot (2nd) and Danel Sinani saw his free kick hit the post of Shakhrudin Magomedaliyev (19th). Dangerous on a strike from Mahir Emreli (3rd), Tierra del Fuego was outnumbered after 22 minutes following a hip-height kick from the side Tellur Mutallimov on Olivier Thill.
The masterpiece of Gerson Rodrigues
Gianni De Biasi’s men could have been sanctioned in the wake but Yvandro Borges, alone in front of the empty goal, missed the frame on his recovery (28th). Although in numerical superiority, the Red Lions struggled to approach Azerbaijani goals favoring attempts from afar and could have been surprised but Makhmudov’s deflection hit the post (56th).
A milling machine before a marvel. After controlling the ball with his back to goal, Gerson Rodrigues attempted an incredible acrobatic return that hit home (0-1, 67 ‘). Ten minutes later, the striker sent a pass from the outside of the foot that Maurice Deville let pass under his legs for Sébastien Thill who finished strong (0-2, 77th). After the reduction of Azer Salahli’s score (1-2, 82nd) from a corner, Gerson Rodrigues drove the point home with a powerful shot (1-3, 90th), his fifth but in seven qualifying matches.
