Moldova – Kazakhstan Match Preview
- Survival in League C of the UEFA Nations League (UNL) is up for grabs as Moldova and Kazakhstan battle it out over a two-legged play-out with the away goals rule no longer a factor. FIFA ranked #181 side Moldova enter these two games as big underdogs after picking up the lowest points (one) and amassing the worst goal difference (-10) amongst all League C teams in their UNL campaign, while their current nine-game losing streak in internationals is their joint-longest in history.
- Their lone point in their recent World Cup campaign came at home though, and Moldova also boasted an unbeaten home record (W1, D2) during the 2018/19 UNL tournament. The minnows may even look at national club side Sheriff Tiraspol’s win over Real Madrid in the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League for inspiration as they plot an unlikely upset.
- Kazakhstan (FIFA #120) are not quite ‘Goliath’ for Moldova to be ‘David’ though, as they themselves look to rebound from a winless World Cup qualification campaign (D3, L5). Even their UNL Group C campaign was a disaster (W1, D1, L4) and only a 1-0 friendly win over Tajikistan last November halted a 15-game winless run, which included their heaviest-ever defeat (8-0 vs France).
- The hurt can be assuaged if the ‘Hawks’ find their radar and get among the goals having managed just three strikes across their last five UNL matches. Doing that will boost their chances of extending an unbeaten run in away UNL matches against teams currently ranked below them (W1, D2), with all three matches producing exactly two goals.
- Players to watch: Moldova’s Radu Gînsari has scored his last four national goals in home matches, with the last three coming in the UNL in matches that produced exactly two goals. Meanwhile, Baktiyar Zaynutdinov scored Kazakhstan’s winner in their last match and the first goal of their 2020/21 UNL campaign.
- Hot stat: Four of Moldova’s last five UNL home matches have produced exactly two goals.
