Liechtenstein vs Moldova: Our top betting tips
This game is a match up between what, in brutally honest terms, can be described as rather woeful sides. Will either show enough to win? Find out with our Liechtenstein vs Moldova match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Moldova to win the match
We've already pointed out that neither of these teams are exactly quality and with neither having won any of their last five games, the stats kind of back us up. That said, we fancy Moldova to win here; they have at least shown an element of fight in their recent outings with a draw in their last away game testament to that. Meanwhile, in their last home game, Liechtenstein we're getting hit for six by Cape Verde! With that in mind, Moldova really should have no worries about losing the game. One moment of quality – or a howler from the hosts – would likely be enough to win the match.
Hosts to blank in front of goal
Our second tip for this game backs the away side, Moldova, to record a clean sheet. Now, they're not exactly known for recording shutouts but Liechtenstein have scored just two goals in their last 10 games. In that time, they've blanked against Cape Verde, the Faroe Islands and Romania. If the hosts score, it's genuinely a noteworthy moment in their history as a footballing country!

Can Liechtenstein grab a historic win?
For lesser nations like these two sides, the Nations League gives them a great opportunity to actually play football that isn't backs to the wall stuff. Will either of these two show us what they're all about or will it be a snoozefest?
Liechtenstein haven't won a game since October 2020 and haven't won a home match in even longer; their last victory on their own patch came back in September 2018 as they beat Gibraltar 2-0. Can they deliver something for their long suffering fans to cheer here?
Liechtenstein's key player– Keeper Ben Buchel is likely to be a busy man. His club side, FC Vaduz, were in the qualifying rounds of the Conference League this season.
Moldova's fans aren't quite as long suffering as their hosts but it's not much better; they've only won four games across the last four years. Not since November 2018 though have they won away from home. Is this where that turgid run ends? It's certainly a good opportunity.
Moldova's key player – Left back Oleg Reabciuk has experience of European football with Olympiacos; he played every minute of their eight Europa League games this season.
