Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
After holding Switzerland to a 3-3 draw at Kybunpark in October, Belarus will look to record their second win in the Euro 2024 qualifiers when they take on Andorra at Szusza Ferenc Stadion in Budapest. Carlos Alos’ men are eager to put an end to their four-game winless run in Group I and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Forward Dmitri Antilevski, who scored as a substitute in the last group game, is pushing for a start, while Dinamo Minsk attacker Ivan Bakhar is one yellow card away from suspension.
The Andorrans, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table with only two points on their account. Given Belarus’ fine performance in the draw with Granit Xhaka and Co, home win should definitely be considered. When the two teams met at Estadi Nacional earlier in the process they played out a goalless draw, but Belarus have improved their game ever since.
Highlighted Team (Andorra):
Andorra national football team played their first official game in 1996, with the team suffering a 6-1 loss to Estonia. The Tricolours have been participating in both European Championship qualifiers and World Cup qualifiers since 2000, but they have yet to make it to the finals of the major tournament.
Andorra have established themselves as a cannon fodder for their rivals, but it has to be noted that they did well to beat Macedonia in the 2006 World Cup qualifier (1-0). The Andorrans play their home games at Estadio Nacional in Andorra la Vella and you should bear in mind that they suffered their biggest defeat in an official match on June 4, 2005 when they were outclassed by Czech Republic in Liberec.
Speaking of their biggest win, the minnows recorded a 2-0 victory over Belarus in a friendly game in Aixovall. The likes of Ildefons Lima and Oscar Sonejee are the most notable footballers who represented Andorra on the international stage.
