Andorra vs Faroe Islands
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Nacional.
Hakan Ericson’s men are favorites to get promoted to League C at the end of this edition of the Nations League, and they have already taken a major step towards it.
They managed to secure a win in their thrilling opening match-up, and posted three points on the board, while the other fixture in the group ended in a draw.
Thus they have a two-point lead at the top of the table as of now, and could possibly increase it this weekend with another strong performance.
They are pitted against the relatively inexperienced and weak Tricolors, who have been on a barren run for the last several years.
Likely, the basic expectation is that Faroe Islands will post a win this Sunday.

Andorra vs Faroe Islands: Prediction
Koldo Alvarez’s men travelled to Latvia for their opener, and recorded a goalless draw. Meanwhile, Ericson’s men hosted Malta in the opening match-day, and delivered an enthralling 3-2 victory.
The hosts had opened the scoring in the 25th minute. However, it was soon equalized, and thus the first half ended in a 1-1 draw. The next 45 minutes was even more nerve-racking. The visitors took a 1-2 lead in the 73rd minute, and threatened to run away with the victory.
However, the home team had the composure to strike one back with just three minutes left on the clock, and in the final minute of the fixture, they slotted in the winner as well.
By the looks of things, Hallur Hansson and his boys have the edge here. They are already at the top of the table, and are high in confidence due to their incredible win the last match-day.
Moreover, they are placed higher in FIFA Rankings, and they also have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes. In fact, they have not even conceded a single goal so far from Alvarez’s men.
In addition, they have won two of their last four overall match-ups, while their counterparts were winless in 23 of their former 25 games. And at home, they were winless in 25 of their last 27 appearances, and in the process, they had also gone through a 12-match losing run.
As such, expect Faroe Islands to make the most of this easy match-up, and record a win this Sunday.
