Europe World Cup Qualification
(05 Sep 2017)
Moldova – Wales
Moldova hosts Wales in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Europe.
Moldova: The home team is currently holding the 6th position, with 2 points won after 5 losses and 2 draws. They have barely managed to score 4 while conceding 18 goals. Moldovians are yet to win a game so far in their World Cup qualifying campaign, however, Wales is a heavy favourite for this one. Moldova officially has one of the weakest squads of these European qualifiers. Furthermore, most of his players play in the national championship, which is extremely weak and without tradition.
Wales: On the other side, Wales is currently in the 3rd position, with 11 points won, after 2 wins and 5 draws. They regularly score, having 10/5 goal difference. However, each of the last 5 matches that Wales have played had under 2.5 goals.Their 1-0 win over Austria on Saturday is a huge boost after series of draws. As the Welsh are running out of time in their hunt for a place in Russia, huge stakes are in the game for them, so this is a must win match.
Conclusion: The home team has only won two international matches in three years and for that reason, they enter every fixture at this level as massive outsiders. Their opponents Moldova have two points to show for their efforts so far, both won against fellow strugglers Georgia. Although Wales will play under pressure they are still a big favourite here and should get 3 points after all.
