Moldova vs Luxembourg
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 18 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadionul Zimbru (Chisinau).
Both Moldova and Luxembourg took advantage of the opportunity to play sides of similar quality in this new UEFA Nations League concept. This can especially be said for the Red Lions who collected as many as nine points in opening four games of the campaign. It was enough to place them at the very top of the standings before final two games in November. Can they stay at the top after Sunday’s trip to Chisinau and the Moldova tie?
The visitors entered November ties with an impressive 10-1 goal difference. We thus have to praise the work Luc Holtz did on improving team’s defensive showings. Luxembourg’s manger has generally achieved amazing results with this quality-limited squad over the past couple of years. We’ll only mention they managed to hold the likes of France (who later won the World Cup) to a goalless draw away from home during the WC qualifying campaign.
Moldova vs Luxembourg: Head-to-head
This will be the sixth head to head clash between the two teams.
The draw was the most common of outcomes happening on three occasions in five games so far.
Interestingly, each of these draws ended with the identical 0-0 scoreline.
Luxembourg picked up a demolishing 4-0 victory when teams met at the beginning of the Nations League campaign.
Moldova vs Luxembourg: Prediction
Much like their counterparts, Moldova were well capable of keeping things quiet at the back recently. They did not concede a single goal in last three matches and none of last five games they played saw goals scored at both ends.
The Under 2.5 goals FT thus pops up as by far the safest of betting options here. As three consecutive head to head affairs between these two likes ended in goalless draws, correct score punters can try with a 0-0 draw as well as an alternative option. Making the difference will indeed be a challenge for both sides as you can also go for no goals at the half time.
Moldova vs Luxembourg: Bet Tips
