Moldova vs Turkey
Date: Tuesday, 10 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadionul Zimbru (Chişinău).
Moldova have been struggling alongside Andorra in Group H and have already hit double digits in terms of conceding goals. The hosts failed to impress in their last matchup with this foe as well and were at the receiving end of four unanswered goals by the end of the game.
Furthermore, the home team were missing in the final third throughout the ninety minutes in that latter clash and managed no more than five measly shots at goal, none of which were even on target.
The Turkish outfit are one of the front runners to make it into the next round and will be settling for nothing less than the win when they make the trip to Moldova on Monday. They were made to work hard by Moldova on Saturday, but thanks to a late goal from Ozan Tufan that saved the day with a 1-0 win.
Although the away side have been normally much more confident bunch in the comforts of their home, Semen Altman’s men are by no means sizing up to be a threat to the Turks who are the favorites to carry all three points back home.
Moldova vs Turkey Head to head (h2h)
- Five of the last seven meetings have seen Turkey clinch the win.
- Their last encounter saw Moldova lose by a whopping 4-0 scorecard.
- Both teams have found the back of the net on just two occasions from their seven clashes.
- Moldova are yet to register a win against this side and have managed to hold their counterparts to a draw at the most twice.
Moldova vs Turkey Prediction
The visitors are undoubtedly the superior of the two sides and are much more experienced on the global stage to add to it as well. Additionally, it needs saying that the hosts have not been faring well in any of their previous clashes with this foe in particular, and have lost by a margin of three goals or more in three of their last four matchups.
On the other hand, the run of form that Moldova are on at the moment, especially on home soil, just does not look encouraging. The home team were able to secure not more than a narrow win over Andorra in their last clash at home, while their only other matchup here saw Les Blues thrash them with a 4-1 scorecard.
So, you can certainly count on the Turks to be confident of coming out on top without breaking much of a sweat in this one.
Three of their last four head to head meetings have seen over 2.5 goals on the charts. Moreover, the hosts have already conceded four goals from their last two matches here as well.
Taking into account that their previous clash with each other also saw four goals on the scoreboard, expect Turkey to rack up the goals tally without fail.
