Our Prediction:

France will win

France – Moldova Match Prediction | 14-11-2019 14:45

All of the stats suggest that Iceland will pick up another three points this weekend and that there is a good chance we will see over 2.5 goals scored in the process. Weve backed a final scoreline of 4-0 due to the poor away record of the visitors and the fact they have twice conceded four goals in recent qualifiers.

But for a 4-0 loss at Luxembourg, they were competitive in all of their matches. In the past year, they have two wins, four draws, and three losses in total. Perhaps one of the most telling ways to look at the differences between these sides is the UEFA Nations League that began last year. That right there speaks volumes about where they are. They just arent a very good team, its a tiny nation, after all, and its always going to be a massive struggle just for them to stay in the hunt against a much bigger side. Its not a great record, thats for sure. With that said, they will be feeling encouraged a little bit by their showing in the UNL. In it, Moldova competed in Group D2. They finished in third place.

Iceland vs Moldova Match Preview

They have failed to score in seven of the eleven games under Spiridon but its no wonder given the real scarcity of quality the manager has to choose from. His great tackling ability will be crucial in this game but it still doesnt sort out their scoring issues. Just two of the Moldova team play in a top five European league with Cagliaris Artur Ioni and Torinos Vitalie Damacan both playing in Serie A. The latter is still to make an appearance for Torino but Ioni has been a mainstay of Rolando Marans side this year with the defensive midfielder playing every league match this season.

Goals at a premium

The hosts are due a big win and wont get too many better chances than at home to a poor Moldova side on Saturday. Were confident that Iceland will win and over 2.5 goals will be scored on Saturday and have predicted a final scoreline of 4-0. Moldova are short of goals and dont create enough chance while Iceland have good quality in their side and have been performing very well in the qualifiers so far.

Their journey in League D Group 2 wasnt as fruitful either, with Belarus topping their division and Moldova ending with just 2 wins out of their 6 games. Moldova, on the other hand, will be looking for improvement on a forgetful UEFA Euro 2016 qualification campaign, wherein they failed to register a single win and finished the campaign with just two points beside their name.

All the usual suspects have been selected for this match and their game against Iceland on Monday with Pogba, Griezmann and Lloris all making the 23 man squad. Alexandre Lazaette and Clement Lenglet have been rather high profile omissions from the team but with Raphael Varane and Kylian Mbapp filling those slots, they should have enough quality about them to really trouble Moldova.

With Moldova failing to keep clean sheets against Luxembourg and Kazakhstan in their last two games, were going to back a simple 3-0 win for France as they look to flex their muscles in Chiinu. The lack of talent up front for Moldova paired with the personnel that the French have at their disposal just doesnt add up to them getting any goals but we are backing the away side to get some. We really dont see Moldova scoring in this match, even given Frances average defensive record. We think the France -2.0 Handicap market looks a good choice for this one.
