Moldova vs Scotland Head-to-head

  • All matches saw a combined scoreline of under 2.5.

Moldova vs Scotland Prediction

The Moldovans have been shambolic in the tournament having just picked up 1 point, which came at home in a 1-1 draw against the Faroe Islands.

They have since lost every game and have been particularly torn apart by Denmark who has scored 12 goals past their defence in 2 games even more embarrassingly Kasper Schmeichel had to save only 2 shots on target during a period of more than 3 hours.

With just one draw they are bottom of the group 3 points behind the Faroe Islands.

Scotland is looking to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1998. After a questionable start to the group stages of the qualifiers, dropping points against Austria and Israel, they have since won every game disregarding their 2-0 loss against Denmark on the road.

In their preceding fixture, Lyndon Dykes rescued his team a couple of points by scoring the only goal of the match against Faroe Island in the 86th minute.

With Denmark out of their reach, Scotland has to settle for a spot in the playoffs. But with Israel just 4 points behind them and their next match coming against the Danes, this is a crucial fixture for the visitors.

Scotland has been impressive in this tournament lately with 4 consecutive wins, they should have no problem taking down the hosts who are on a 7 match losing streak.

Despite their form, Scotland has not scored a lot of goals, especially on the road. They have kept it tidy in defence, however. Expect a low scoring fixture.
