55' 

Azerbaijan are still sticking to their shape, but they're playing a dangerous game in possession. Wales' pressing has been good since the break.

  • Chris Mepham
    Yellow cardChris MephamWalesBooking for Mepham, silly foul conceded.
52'

Booking for Mepham, silly foul conceded.

50' 

James wins a corner for Wales after cutting in from the left. He was found beautifully by a cross-field pass by Bale.

46' 

Wales straight on the attack through Bale down the right, but his cross is held by Agayev.

45' 

Second half underway. Wales kick us off.

45' 

HALF TIME. It's 1-0 to Wales thanks to Pavlo Pashaev's own goal. They've been lively, though.

45' + 1 

One added minute as Lawrence cuts in and shoots straight at Agayev.

45' 

Foul against Mepham, but Emreli appeared to swing an elbow, and the defender isn't happy.

43' 

Really poor corner yet again by Wilson, easily cleared by Azerbaijan.

  • Dimitrij Nazarov
    Yellow cardDimitrij NazarovAzerbaijanFirst booking of the game for Nazarov, high foot against Roberts. Short free kick leads to a corner.

40' 

Take a look at Pashaev's bizarre own goal as Wales go 1-0 up.

37' 

Lawrennce too aggressive in the challenge and a foul is given against him. Wales looking to end the half strongly.

34' 

James is involved again as he flashes a cross in but nobody is there to meet it.

32' 

James has probably been Wales' best player so far tonight. His cutback for Lawrence is cut out after a poor touch by the Derby man.

27' 

Can Wales push on from here? Wilson has just gone down in the area, nothing doing.

  • Pavel Pasayev
    Own-goalPavel PasayevAzerbaijanGOOOOOOAAAALLL! Real mix up at the back for Azerbaijan as Pashaev puts through his own net after a hit from Bale is deflected.
26'

GOOOOOOAAAALLL! Real mix up at the back for Azerbaijan as Pashaev puts through his own net after a hit from Bale is deflected.

23' 

Wales stepping it up a bit in terms of possession, but they're too slow at the moment. For all their quality, you can see why they've had issues in front of goal.

20' 

Wales up the tempo as Roberts backheels for Lawrence to cross, before the ball returns to Allen. Both crosses are cleared before Bale heads across the box and wins a corner. That's better.

17' 

Risky now from Wilson, who may have just stamped on Richard. But the referee hasn't even booked him.

16' 

Free kick in a great position after Rahimov fouls Roberts, but Wilson's cross is cleared.

10' 

Azerbaijani defender Medvedev marauds forward and shoots wide after a one-two. Poor effort but far too easy. Wales carved open.

9' 

Great play by Wales as James releases Wilson in the box, but his touch is just too heavy and goes out for a goal kick.

7' 

Sniff of an opportunity for Azerbaijan, who pounce on a mix up between Ampadu and Roberts in the middle, but nothing comes of it.

5' 

CHANCE! Great run and cross by Bale, but Lawrence guides his volley just wide. First warning from the Real Madrid man.

2' 

Wilson crosses in well, but Rodon can't guide his effort on target.

1' 

Azerbaijan push forward straight away, but Wales clear the danger through Ampadu. Foul on Dan James, who wins a free kick. Harry Wilson over it.

1' 

And we're off!

19:42 

Great noise for the Welsh national anthem!

19:38 

Teams are in the tunnel!

19:34 

But with just six goals in the last nine games puts the pressure on the likes of Bale, James and Harry Wilson. They'll need a fast start.

19:33 

Swansea's Joe Rodon has been given his international debut at the back, while Ethan Ampadu partners Joe Allan in midfield behind that attacking line up. Exciting.

19:31 

All eyes will be on Budapest tonight as Hungary face Slovakia in a top of the group clash. Wales win and the pressure could be on whoever loses there.

19:30 

15 minutes until kick off. Could this be a huge night for Wales?

19:24 

There should be a great opportunity for three points and a few goals. Azerbaijan haven't won for 10 months and have conceded eight goals in their last two games.

19:21 

Dan James has made a superb start to life at Old Trafford, with three goals in four Premier League games. What sort of impact will he have tonight?

19:17 

The Dragons have suffered back-to-back defeats in their last two qualifiers, to Hungary and Croatia, but crucially they have won their only home game so far.

19:13 

Make no mistake, tonight is massive for Wales. Three games into Group E, Ryan Giggs' men are already six points off the pace. They sit second bottom, with only Azerbaijan below them. They need to win.

19:07 

Here is how Azerbaijan line up: Agayev, Pashaev, Medvedev, Mustafazade, Krivotsyuk, Richard, Garayev, Madatov, Nazarov, Rahimov, Sheydaev

19:03 

Here's Wales' line up for the game. Gareth Bale starts after two goals for Real Madrid last weekend, alongside Manchester United new boy Dan James. Though there is no recognised striker in the side. Could Derby's Tom Lawrence be leading the line?
