Cyprus vs Luxembourg
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 14 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Neo GSP, Nicosia.
Luxembourg are on a great path to earn promotion in UEFA Nations League for the second year in a row. They are sitting at the top of League C Group 1 at the moment with nine points from four matches, and a solid chance to create advantage over Montenegro.
Cyprus is their next opponent this Saturday in Nicosia and we should witness an interesting match.
The hosts are not doing so well lately, but they are under pressure to avoid relegation. Bookies are slightly favouring the visitors at 2.40 odds.
Cyprus vs Luxembourg Head-to-head
These two opponents locked horns three times in the past so far – Cypriots were victorious in two occasions, while losing one encounter.
The most recent clash took place one month ago in Luxembourg. Hosts have taken an easy 2-0 win thanks to the goals of Danel Sinani.
It is worth mentioning that Cyprus defeated Luxembourg two times 23 years ago when the opposition was one of the weakest squads in Europe.
Cyprus vs Luxembourg Prediction
The Cypriots had a decent showing a couple of days ago in Athens against Greece. It was a friendly match and they were defeated narrowly 1-2 FT. Marios Ilia scored the only goal for Cypriots.
Overall, the team is on a really bad streak, having lost seven out of the last eight encounters across competitions. The last time they achieved victory was October 2019 against Kazakhstan on the road.
Cyprus have minimal chance to avoid relegation to League D after collecting only one point from first four games, failing to score one single goal.
Luxembourg also were involved in mid-week friendly match action. They were also defeated by Austria 0-3.
Team’s best performance in 2020 was one month ago in Podgorica, managing to cause an upset and beat Montenegro 2-1.
Quality is definitely with the visiting side in this clash, but we are also expecting goals in Nicosia.
