Gibraltar vs Liechtenstein Predictions and Match Preview

Gibraltar vs Liechtenstein
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 16th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Victoria Stadium (Gibraltar).

Gibraltar made history last week with recording their first ever competitive win in an international football match, and that too in a tournament like the Nations League. Fans are on song. With the home advantage, they will at any cost try to avoid a loss in this match and hope for the momentum to keep going.

With just one clean sheet in their last 20 matches and an awry away form, Liechtenstein is trying to get things in order. Their problems at the back will likely be targeted by the invigorated home side. The group winner will be likely Macedonia as they hold six points advantage over the other three teams. The other teams have the available Euro spot to play for though.

The reverse fixture played out to a 2-0 win for the home team then. But Gibraltar at home, after recording their first ever win will prove to be a tougher challenge.

Gibraltar vs Liechtenstein Prediction

If not for the win against Armenia, that too on the road, this match would have probably gone for Liechtenstein. But that game changed all the equations. Gibraltar suddenly has higher hopes and expectations. They have started to dream.

The spirited home side will play out their hearts and it will be tough for the visiting side to completely dominate Gibraltar at their home. Their problems in defence will be an opportunity for the home side too. With just one clean sheet in the last 20 of their away matches, Gibraltar will likely put one past the visiting defence.

The match will likely be a draw and it is expected, with weak defences at both ends that both teams will score.
