Moldova vs Faroe Islands Prediction & Match Preview


Faroe Islands

25 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET World Cup Qual

Moldova and Faroe Islands go head to head at Stadionul Zimbru in the World Cup qualifier. 

Moldova aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Greece and Kosovo, and they are eager to put an end to their seven-match goalless run. 

The former Soviet Republic are eyeing their first home win since June 2019, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field.

Faroe Islands, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draws with Latvia and Malta in the UEFA Nations League. 

Since Moldova have been struggling in front of goal in recent months, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. 

This will be the first ever meetings between the two national teams in a competitive match. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in four of Moldova’s previous five games in all competitions.
