Estonia vs Finland
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 12th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: A. Le Coq Arena (Tallinn).
Estonia hosts Finland in this League C fixture in the UEFA Nations League. The home team is desperate for a change in their fortunes after a run of four consecutive losses.
But from the look of things, it might not be time yet for the Estonians to have a sigh of relief. The return fixture in Finland ended in a victory for the home team then.
Goals are usually scarce when these two teams face each other. This time either the story will not be different. The last match between these teams ended in a 1-0 score line.
Finland tops the Group 2 in League C, while Estonia stays at the bottom. With a win in this match, the Finns can almost ensure their progression to League B.
Estonia has not yet secured a single point in the tournament while their Friday’s visitors had bagged all the available six points so far.

Estonia vs Finland Prediction
Finland is a much stronger team when compared to Estonia, on the basis of line-ups on paper as well as recent performances. Securing six out of available six points, they are on the verge of promotion to League C.
With a win against Estonia, they will have an almost unassailable lead in the group. As things stand Finland should go in for the kill against the home side.
With four consecutive losses in all tournaments, and not even securing a single point in the Nations League so far, Estonia harbors not much hope in this tournament.
Both teams are not famous for scoring a lot of goals. Be it Finland, the stronger team in the mix, who secure wins following the model of Simeone’s Atleti, or be it Estonia. The recent match of 1-0 between the sides is a testimonial for the fact.
