Gibraltar vs San Marino
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Victoria Stadium.
There are 210 countries listed in the FIFA World Ranking for international teams, and La Serenissima are placed 209th in it. This alone should provide a vague idea about the quality of this team.
They surely do get credit for their efforts, but let’s be real here. No one, not even their wildest fans (if someone exist) would be expecting them to have even one good game this whole tournament.
They easily could be termed as the worst team in the world, and are considered to be the whipping boys of other teams in major competitions.
Still, props to UEFA for giving them opportunities, and trying to lift them into the limelight – which certainly would be beneficial in the long run.
Team 54 are no heavy-hitter either. But still, they are far better than their opponents for the day.
By all means, expect Gibraltar to secure the three points this Saturday.

- The two teams are taking on each other for the very first time.
Gibraltar vs San Marino: Prediction
Franco Varella’s men have lost every single one of their games since 2012, except for a goalless draw in 2015.
They were placed in this League D itself in the last edition of the competition, and then they had lost all six of their games. Not just that – they conceded 16 goals in the process, and could not even score one in return.
In the recently-concluded Euro Qualifiers, they had finished dead last in Group I, and lost all ten of their match-ups. They conceded a mammoth 51 goals in the meanwhile, and scored just a single goal in return.
In fact, they had lost their five road games in the tournament by a combined scorecard of 0-33.
Going on, they are also on a 26-fixture losing run away from home, and registered a combined scorecard of 2-93, from their last 16 such games.
In the meantime, their counterparts have recorded wins against Liechtenstein, Latvia etc at home, and will be hoping to take advantage of this fixture.
Only three teams are included in this group, and considering the third team is Liechtenstein, Team 54 will hope to get promoted to League C at the end of this campaign – and for that it’s important that they begin on a positive note.
Count on them to give their 100% on the pitch, and record a convincing win this weekend.
