Tip Reasoning

  • Moldova scored just once in their six Nations League group games, while Kazakhstan netted five goals in their six such outings.
  • Four of the teams’ five head-to-head meetings saw under 2.5 goals scored.
  • Moldova have managed just one friendly win in their last two years of action, last winning a competitive game in June 2019.

Nations League clash may not entertain

The relegation play-offs of League C in the UEFA Nations League do not sound particularly glamourous, and in Moldova and Kazakhstan, such a setting has two fitting participants. Moldova have not won a competitive game since beating Andorra in June 2019, and Kazakhstan are winless in 13 competitive outings.

With both teams in such dire form, punters would likely be ill-advised to look at the win market, and may find more value elsewhere. With Moldova only scoring once in six Nations League matches during the current campaign, an opening goal in a 1-1 draw with Kosovo, backing a lack of goals could represent a smart play for Thursday’s clash.

Indeed, Kazakhstan averaged under a goal per game in Nations League Group C4, despite facing off against the likes of Albania, Belarus, and Lithuania. A 2-0 win away at Lithuania accounted for over half the Kazakhs’ goals in that campaign, but that was not enough to stop them finishing rock-bottom.

Under three goals looks the best play, with visitors favoured for a win

Under 2.5 match goals, which was a winning bet for three of Kazakhstan’s Nations League group matches and in five of Moldova’s, looks a strong play.

However, to secure any value from this clash, punters may be advised to back the visitors for a win, after they secured creditable draws with Ukraine and Bosnia-Herzegovina last year.

A 1-0 away win, therefore, could be a decent correct score prediction, with the visitors sat about 60 places higher than Moldova in the FIFA World Rankings.
