Slovenia vs Moldova
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Stožice.
Matjaz Kek’s men are ranked 64th by FIFA, while their counterparts are placed 175th in the same list. That should give an idea about the difference in quality between these squads. And also do note that there are only 210 teams listed by FIFA at the moment.
Going on, Kek’s men are also in much better form, they are performing well at home, and on top of all that, they have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent.
Whereas on the other hand, Engin Firat’s men could be considered contenders to get relegated at the end of the campaign, and are going through terrible spells – both in overall fixtures, as well as on the road.
By all means, expect a blowout win by Slovenia this Sunday.
Slovenia vs Moldova: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Kek’s men had won 1-2 on the road the last time these two clashed on the pitch.
- They have a 100% winning record against this rival.
- They have scored two or more goals in every single meeting so far.
- At home, not only do they have a perfect winning record, but they have scored three or more goals in 100% of these games, and are yet to concede a single goal in return.
Slovenia vs Moldova: Prediction
Bojan Jokic’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day, by Greece. Meanwhile, Firat’s men recorded a 1-1 draw at home, against Kosovo.
Thus, all four teams in the Group have secured a point each, and are still trying to get the edge over the others.
Firat’s men could be considered the worst of the lot. They are on a nine-game winless run, and of these eight were losses. They were also winless in 13 of their last 14 overall match-ups, and had lost 11 of these fixtures.
On the road, they are on a seven-match losing run, and they remained winless in 27 of their former 30 such games. In fact, they have won just thrice away from home in the past five years, and had failed to score in 14 of their past 17 such fixtures.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in seven of their last eight appearances at home, and had won three of these last five matches as well.
And most importantly, they have a 100% winning record in h2h games, and have scored three or more goals in 100% of h2h clashes at home.
Considering these observations, expect a dominating winning performance from Slovenia this Sunday.
