Liechtenstein vs Gibraltar
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday 9th September 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Rhienpark Stadion (Vaduz).
Two of Europe’s minnow sides will meet up on Sunday evening in the UEFA Nations League to see if any of them can claim 3 valuable points and a chance to progress to the next round.
Liechtenstein used to be a nation that would concede many goals and also finish bottom of their qualifying groups. Whilst the small nation still do it has become apparent that they have also improved in the last 10 years. Still they come into this game having lost their last 6 games.
They opened up their Nations League account as they lost to Armenia by 2-1 away and so being at home will be very important for them to get a win. The goal against Armenia was Liechtenstein’s first for 1 year.
Gibraltar are officially ranked as the worst team in the UEFA rankings and will be expected to lose this game. The national team has only played 30 official matches and have lost 25 of those with 3 draws and 2 wins. Their two victories have come against Latvia and Malta. They have conceded 27 goals in their last 6 matches averaging out at over 4 a game.
Liechtenstein vs Gibraltar: Head to Head
The nations have only met once where the game ended in a draw.
Liechtenstein vs Gibraltar: Prediction
Liechtenstein should have little problems winning this game which is something very rare to say about this nation. However they are as low as 1.30 (1/3) to do so. Thankfully other markets have opened up for this game and so we will look into those that will give us value.
This is quite a journey for Gibraltar to undertake and nothing suggests that this will be the nation’s 3rd win ever. Liechtenstein have improved in recent years and have much more experience at this level and they should be able to at least at home ease to victory here.
