De Biasi has coached extensively in his homeland, working for SPAL, Brescia, Torino and Udinese among others.

However, he is arguably best known for his five-year tenure as Albania CT, taking them to Euro 2016 and – in turn – their first-ever major tournament.

His first game for Azerbaijan falls on September 5, against Luxembourg in Nations League Group C.
