Moldova take on the likes of Austria as they look to be headed beyond the reach of qualifying as Austria will be aiming to secure a comprehensive victory and get going.
The home side are currently struggling at the bottom of the table with just 1 point on the board with a goal difference of negative 11 which is not good signs for their fans as they are crashing out of the qualifiers without giving any serious threat to their opponents.
But, there is always room for improvement as the home side will be looking forward to spoil the party for their counter-part teams.
On the other hand, Austria currently sit in 4th in the table, level on points with Israel and just 1 point adrift from Scotland who sit in 2nd which is the last qualifying spot from Group F.
The away side will be looking to stamp their authority over Moldova and progress further up the table.
Consequently, they will be looking to take up good spirits and confidence from their heart-warming performances at the Euros as they crashed out of the tournament in Extra-Time to the Champions Italy in a 2-1 score line.
They will certainly believe that they can pull themselves out of this tight group and there is no better start that they could ask for when they take on Moldova on Saturday evening.
