Gibraltar vs Estonia
Date: Tuesday, 26 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Victoria Stadium (Gibraltar).
Estonia will be looking to rebound from Thursday’s loss to Northern Ireland at the start of the EURO 2020 qualifying campaign. They chose to play one of the weakest teams on the continent in a friendly on Tuesday aiming to snatch a comprehensive confidence-boosting win ahead of tough June fixtures against Northern Ireland and Germany.
The team led by Martin Reim managed to hold Green and White Army to a goalless draw in the first half, but they shipped two late goals in the second half to lose 2-0 at the end. Nonetheless, we have to mention the obvious rise in team’s defensive efforts in recent months as Estonia previously allowed no more than one goal in three matches against Greece, Finland and Iceland. Last two clashes were NON FIFA friendlies as teams played without their key players in January this year.
Gibraltar vs Estonia: Head-to-head
These two likes played each other in the same WC Qualification group.
Estonia picked up two demolishing wins with a goal difference of 10-0 along the way (0-4 and 6-0).
Teams also met each other in two NON FIFA friendlies in 2014 when Estonia claimed a win and a draw apiece.
Gibraltar vs Estonia: Prediction
Gibraltar ended their Nations League campaign in a dreadful fashion conceding ten goals in back-to-back losses to Armenia and Macedonia in November last year. However, they previously managed to pick up shocking wins over Armenia and Liechtenstein to avoid the rock-bottom finish in their Nations League group.
These wins should count for little when Gibraltar come face to face with Estonia who are obviously at least one level above in terms of quality. Estonians bagged ten goals without conceding a single in last two qualifiers against Gibraltar. They will be motivated to lift spirits with another confident win here and we will back the visitors to win by at least three goals difference as the main betting option here.
