Moldova vs Georgia
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group D)
Date: Sunday, 11th June 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadionul Zimbru.
The head to head clash between Moldova and Georgia is the best possible opportunity for both sides to grab their first win of the WC Qualification campaign.
The two teams sit at the very bottom of the standings after five rounds in group D ahead of their Sunday’s meeting at Stadionul Zimbru.
This group seems to be way too tough for the team led by the Russian expert Igor Dobrovolskiy.
Moldova lost four of five qualifiers by at least two goals difference to Wales, Serbia, Republic of Ireland and Austria.
The hosts will, however, come in the game with Georgia in an improved atmosphere after showing quite a decent display in a friendly with Israel in mid-week. Radu Ginsari pushed Moldovans in charge at Winner Stadium, but the team was unlucky to concede a 95th minute equalizer from Ben Sahar.
Georgia have also been pretty impressive in their recent friendlies as they demolished Latvia and St Kitts and Nevis with the total goal differential of 8-0 prior to the qualifier with Moldova.
Firmer head coach of the Slovakian national team, Vladimir Weiss, took charge before the start o the qualifications, but he could not do much more than claiming two points in a very tough group D.
Moldova vs Georgia: Head to head
Georgia had an early lead in the clash played back in November last year after Valeri Kazaishvili’s opener, but Aleksandr Gatcan secured the first point of the campaign for Moldovans 12 minutes from time.
Moldavia are generally the more successful side as they lead the head to head tie by two wins, but they struggled a lot to find goals in the most recent history of H2H meetings with Georgia.
Moldova vs Georgia: Prediction
The visitors have been much more solid at the back throughout the qualifications and they seem to have more quality in their squad.
Also, we don’t expect to see a goal fest since Moldova also seem to have improved defensively as they conceded only a single goal to Israel on Tuesday.
