Moldova vs Kazakhstan
UEFA Nations League C – Relegation Playoff
Date: Thursday, 24 March 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadionul Zimbru.
Moldova are one of the worst teams in the world, and it was reflected in their Nations League campaign as well. They were placed bottom-most in Group C3 in League C, and had an embarrassing record to show for their efforts.
They had failed to register a single win, and for all their hard work, they were able to slot in a single goal in the tournament. And it had come against the next worst team in Group C3 – Kosovo.
Going on, the team is ranked 181st by FIFA, and not even ardent fans hope for a great performance from this squad.
Meanwhile, Kazakhstan will find this upcoming encounter as an opportunity to extend their stay in League C. They too had to settle for the dead-last spot in Group C4, but it needs to be noted that they had a far better record.
Moreover, they also have a better h2h record against this rival in recent years.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Kazakhstan this Thursday.
