Albania vs Andorra Prediction
Albania’s latest match was on the road, as part of this competition, and they had taken on Moldova. Impressively, the team, despite the away handicap, decimated the hosts, with a 0-4 scorecard. Three goals had come early in the game, and then the visitors took the foot off the gas, and later added one more right as the regular time came to an end, to wrap things up.
Andorra had taken on Iceland on their latest road trip. Expectedly, the hosts were the dominant side, and with qualification on the line, they put on a commendable performance. The home team registered a 2-0 scoreline, despite missing a penalty.
This Thursday, while both are eliminated, either would want to finish out their campaign on a positive note. Keep note that, the Albanians had won the reverse fixture of this game, and kept a clean sheet in the process as well. Despite being on the road then, the team recorded a 0-3 victory, to take a major step towards the top-tier.
Moreover, Andorra has been one of the worst teams in the group, and if not for Moldova, they would have taken the tag as the absolute worst.
Take into account the fact that they have lost seven of their total eight games in the competition, and the only one where they stood unbeaten was against Moldova. In addition, Andorra has scored a total of just one goal in their qualification campaign and conceded sixteen in return.
Finally, Albania has won three of their former four home ties, whereas their opposite number was winless in 20 of their last 22 road trips, and lost their previous six on the trot.
As such, confidently expect Albania to post the three points on the board, and brave punters can even go on to back the ‘win to nil’ option on the Albanians.
