Estonia vs Gibraltar: Preview and Prediction

Estonia vs Gibraltar
European Qualifiers – 2018 World Cup
Date: Friday, 7th October 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: A. Le Coq Arena, Tallinn.

Two teams currently in a poor performance, Estonia and Gibraltar will face each other at A. Le Coq Arena on Friday night as the World Cup qualifiers continues. Both teams were on the receiving end in their first game of the campaign, Estonia were beaten 5-0 on the road by Bosnia while Gibraltar received there own 1-4 beating at home against Greece.

Estonia are currently rock the bottom of the group, though they are in same point as Gibraltar in 4th and Cyprus in 3rd. A win for any of the team in this fixture will keep them in the 4th position or above that should the top teams conceded much goals.

The two teams need to do much work on defence, their conceding rate is on the high side and their scoring ratio is also poor.

Estonia vs Gibraltar:Prediction

This is a game of uncertainty, as both teams are in a very poor run of form. They have both been on a winless streak and have been conceding lots of goals. Estonia are win-less in their last 4 games, and have to score in 3 of their last 4 games. They have concede a total of 13 goals in their last 4 games and scored just once.

Gibraltar’s issues are far more worse than their host, they last won a game on June 2014. They have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 games and have conceded at least 4 goals in 4 of their last 5 games.

Both teams have a poor defense which have resulted in the high conceding rate. The game could go either way, but the home team who are slightly better in form could come out winners.
