San Marino vs Moldova
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, 15 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico di Serravalle (Serravalle).
Moldova will be hoping to catch up with the likes of Luxembourg and Belarus and stay in the contest for the very top of the standings in Group 2 on Thursday evening when they travel to Serravalle to take on the underdogs San Marino in the fifth round of the competition.
The visitors head into this as heavy favourites given they will be playing one of the weakest football teams on the continent here. La Serenissima lost as many as 25 games on the bounce coming into this fixture with Moldova. They have a dreadful 0-13 goal difference after four rounds in the Group 2. Whilst the new UEFA Nations League concept was imagined to help weaker sides pick up some results, it seems there is still no help for San Marino who are way out of the contest even in the League D.
San Marino vs Moldova: Head-to-head
Moldova completely dominated this match-up over the course of history.
They won all of seven previous head to head encounters against La Serenissima.
San Marino failed to score a single goal in these seven matches (0-16 goal difference).
Moldova picked up a comfortable 2-0 victory when teams met each other a month ago at Stadionul Zimbru in Chisinau.
Radu Ginsari was the man who bagged a brace on the occasion.
San Marino vs Moldova: Prediction
San Marino did not score a single goal in last six matches in general. They lost five of these six outings by at least three goals difference. Given Moldova kept their net untouched in last three games in Nations League, we can hardly predict anything else but a comprehensive straightforward victory for Alexandru Spiridon’s men here.
Moldova to keep a clean sheet looks to be a banker at 1.44, but we’ll go with higher odds and back the visitors to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 1.53.
