Venue: GSP Stadium, Nicosia.

Two teams rocking the bottom of group H table will face each other on Sunday evening at Neo Gsp stadium. The home teams Cyprus will be a lot disappointed with their poor start to the campaign, considering they did better in the Euro 2016 qualification games.

The World Cup qualifiers have already gone sour for the two teams, as they are yet to win a game. They have both lost their first 3 games in the campaign so far. Cyprus lost 3-0 to Belgium, and later lost 2-0 each to both Greece and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Cyprus are now running on a six-game losing streak, scoring only 4 and have conceded 13 goals in the journey. They have a chance of grabbing their first point of the campaign in this game.

Gibraltar are conceded the lowest rated side in the competition, having played their first competitive game in 2014. Gibraltar have never won a competitive game, their only win was Friendly game against Malta. They have lost 18 of their 21 games and they will enter this game as from 17 game winless streak.

Cyprus vs Gibraltar: Prediction

Though the two teams are yet to win a game and are on same point, Cyprus still stand as Favourites in the game. The have more experience than Gibraltar and are also playing at home soil. Both teams have been on the receiving end recently but Gibraltar’s case is worst. They have conceded 24 goals in their last 5 games, scoring just once, Gibraltar have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 games like Cyprus.

Considering the stats above, it is safe to be on Cyprus’ side. We expect Cyprus to win this one though they are not seen as a goal scoring team.
