Kosovo vs Cyprus: Our top betting tips

If Cyprus win this game they will avoid relegation; it is that simple. Can they do it? Find out with our Kosovo vs Cyprus match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Calling it all square

We kick off our tips for this game by backing a draw. Kosovo beat Cyprus earlier in this Nations League group but since then have lost three of four games. Cyprus meanwhile have lost just once since that game winning one and drawing the other two. With Kosovo at home and safe in the knowledge that a draw will see them avoid falling into that relegation spot, we can see them settling for a point with Cyprus unable to find a breakthrough.

A low scoring match

Given what we've just touched on about Kosovo settling for a draw, it will probably come as no surprise that we don't see this match unfolding as an end-to-end goalfest. On top of that, neither side have form for seeing a lot of goals and, as such, we're backing under 2.5 total goals. Kosovo have seen three of their last five matches fall under that marker with Cyprus only going north of the 2.5 threshold in two of their previous five matches. We think it's a fairly safe bet!

A group blown wide open by recent results

There was a point in time where we were going to have to try and sell a Nations League dead rubber between Kosovo and Cyprus as some sort of spectacle; we fancy ourselves as alright writers but, boy, that would have been tough! Thankfully, owing to the last round of results in this group, things are actually stacked up to be really interesting here with Kosovo blowing a lead to two late goals and Cyprus beating a Greece side that had previously held a 100% record. It means that three sides in this group could all be relegated with two of them being Kosovo and Cyprus.

Kosovo could have been in with a chance of topping the group and subsequently winning promotion but for an eight minute collapse last time out. Instead, they could now be relegated if they lose this match. A strong XI will unquestionably take to the field.

Kosovo Predicted lineup – Muric, Rrudhanim Aliti, Fazliji, Hadergjonaj, Celina, Muslija, Dresevic, Rashani, Rashica, Muriqi

Cyprus hadn't won a match when this round of international fixtures began and with Greece first up a defeat and relegation looks all but confirmed. They shocked Greece though and another result like that here would see them keep their head above water. Expect an unchanged XI.

Cyprus Predicted lineup – Panagi, Andreou, Roberge, Katelaris, Ioannou, Kastanos, Artymatas, Kriakou, Loizou, Sotiriou, Tzionis
