Moldova – Albania Match Prediction | 14-10-2019 14:45

Born in Germany to Albanian parents, Mergim Mavraj made two appearances for the Germany Under 21 side before switching his allegiance to Albania and he has since become a key defender for his new national team. The experienced centre back began his professional career at Darmstadt, but his talent was quickly spotted by Bochum scouts and he made a move to the Bundesliga side in 2007.

In this game against Albania, coach Alexandru Spiridon should opt for the usual 4-3-3, privileging the defensive organization and the direct balls for the attack: Catalin Carp, player of Ufa of Russia, owns great quality of pass and vision of the game. Moldova come to this game with a 1-0 win at Andorra, registering their first victory in this EURO 2020 qualifying round: Igor Armas was the great hero in scoring the only goal of the game. For this game the coach will not be able to count on Ionita, suspended.

In this match against Moldova, coach Edoardo Reja should opt for the 4-3-3, privileging the maintenance of possession of the ball and the successive attacks, mainly through the sides: Sokol Cikalleshi is a very fast and excellent player in the offensive transition. The Albanians arrive to this game with a 1-0 defeat in their visit to Iceland, registering the second defeat in this stage of qualifying for the European Championship of 2020. For this game the coach can count on all his players. The only victory in this competition was in the second round when they defeated Andorra by 0-3 .

The 1-0 win ensured their first points of this campaign, after they opened with a 4-1 home defeat to France and 4-0 loss in Turkey. Igor Armas scored early on but Moldova played much of the second-half with ten men after Artur Ionitas second yellow card. Moldova ended a four-match winless streak by holding to beat Andorra with ten men last time out.

There is no record of official clashes between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last confrontation was on 15-08-2012 and ended with the result: Albania (0-0) Moldova. In this match the home factor may play a significant role, as Albania has significant differences in the results achieved at home and as a visitor. Albania and Moldova play at the Elbasan Arena in a qualifying round of the Euro Qualifiers.

Moldova footballers, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Andorra at home ground. The former Soviet republic, though, are not regarded as good travelers and seeing that they conceded eight goals in total in the first two group games against France and Turkey, we are positive that the hosts will pick up all three points from the Elbasan Arena clash.

Rocked by their defeat to Iceland last time out, nothing less than a win will do this time, but they should earn exactly that. They have not even conceded in their last three games in Elbasan and another home win should be on the cards. Expert Verdict: Moldova beat Andorra last time out but Albania are a different kettle of fish.

Moldova - Albania H2H

The former Soviet republic, though, are not regarded as good travelers and seeing that they conceded eight goals in total in the first two group games against France and Turkey, we are positive that the hosts will pick up all three points from the Elbasan Arena clash. Moldova footballers, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Andorra at home ground.

Their last home game ended in a 2-0 defeat against Turkey and they have just 1 win from their last 3 matches. But that win was against Andorra which was expected and they were only able to win 3-0 in a game that many were expecting to have more goals in it for them. Albania lost their last game against Iceland which ended in a 1-0 defeat.

We thus feel Albania will be able to capitalize on such woes and turn a rather narrow occasion their way in front of the home fans once again. Alexandru Spiridons men have struggled to score goals on the road and failed to do so in five of their last six games on the road, with only the win at San Marino (0-1) interrupting such a streak.
