Cyprus vs San Marino
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Thursday, 21st March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: GSP Stadium (Nicosia).
One of the most lopsided fixtures in the qualifiers. Cyprus themselves are not that much of a threat for other teams, but this time, they are pitted against San Marino, easily one of the worst squads in participation. And on top of that, Cyprus enjoys home advantage for the game.
The hosts couldn’t perform to their heart’s desire in the recently over Nations League. Some back-to-back tough games plotted their downfall to the lower division, and with such an easy opening in this competition, they will be raring to get off a great start.
San Marino deserves credit for showing up. Other than that there’s not much to ramble on about the team. They lost 41 of their last 42 games, and the one remaining single tie was a goalless draw against Estonia. That remains the squad’s only achievement in the last decade.

Cyprus vs San Marino Prediction
More than the good qualities of Cyprus, what deserves mention more in the analysis, is San Marino’s incompetence. Since 2011, the team has lost 41 of their last 42 games, and the last 24 on the road. Moreover, they scored just a single goal in their last 16 games.
Going on, the team has a 100% losing record against Cyprus and has never scored against them. On the other hand, at home, Cyprus has always managed three or more goals.
Also keep in mind that, Cyprus was unbeaten in seven of their last nine home-ties. The team will want to begin with a bang, considering their failure in the Nations League. In aid of their quest, they have been allotted the easiest fixture available, and count on them to make the most of it.
