Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Rheinpark Stadion will host Sunday’s Euro 2024 qualifier between Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, the two teams who failed to book their place at the next year’s showpiece tournament. Luxembourg, though, are enjoying a successful qualifying campaign with 14 points on their account and given their excellent performance in a 4-1 win over Bosnia, away win should definitely be considered. The good news for the visiting side is that Vincent Thill returns from suspension.
Liechtenstein, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of Group J ahead of the visit of Luxembourg and given their shaky defence, anything but a routine away win would be a big surprise. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the last group game, but midfielder Livio Meier is widely expected to return to the starting line-up after coming as a substitute in a 2-0 loss to Portugal.
Highlighted Team (Luxembourg):
Luxembourg national football team is controlled by Luxembourg Football Federation and they play their home games at Stade Josy Barthel. Les Lions Rouges have never qualified for the finals of a major tournament, but they often make life difficult for European teams in the qualifiers.
Luxembourg defeated Macedonia in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but a victory over Czech Republic in the 1996 European Championship qualifying match is considered the team’s biggest success. Les Lions Rouges play their home matches in red shirts and red shorts, while they wear white jerseys and white shorts when playing on the travels.
Jeff Strasser is both the most famous and the most capped Luxembourg player and it has to be noted that the former Bundesliga player made 98 appearances for the national team. Luxembourg recorded their biggest win against Afghanistan (6-0), in the match that was played in London in 1948. Speaking of their biggest defeat, Luxembourg were outclassed by England 9-0 on two occasions (1960, 1982).
