Our prediction for this Nations League match:
After sharing the spoils with San Marino in their last group game, Gibraltar will be looking to give fans some cheer when they take on Liechtenstein at Victoria Stadium on Tuesday evening. Gibraltar are one point away from securing promotion to League C, and we are positive that they will adopt a defence-minded approach in the decider. It has to be noted that the hosts are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the process.
Liechtenstein, on the other hand, failed to impress in a goalless draw with San Marino, with the team failing to create a descent opportunity to score at home ground. The Blues-Reds experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Malta in a friendly as well, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Group 2 leaders.
Highlighted Team (Liechtenstein):
Liechtenstein national football team are well known at the Blues-Reds. They wear blue shirts and red shorts when playing in front of home fans, whilst their second colours are red (shirts) and blue (shorts). Rheinpark Stadion in Vaduz is considered the team’s home ground and the capacity of the venue is 7.584.
In 1981 Liechtenstein faced Malta in their first ever unofficial match and they shared the spoils (1-1) with the Falcons in Seoul. Speaking of their first official game, Liechtenstein suffered a 1-0 loss to Switzerland two years later and it has to be noted that the Swiss played with a severely-weakened squad. The Blues-Reds recorded their first ever win in the World Cup qualifiers on October 13, 2004, with the team rolling over Luxembourg on the road.
At the same time, that was the team’s first ever away win and, no doubt, the triumph gave the minnows a confidence boost. Liechtenstein have yet to qualify for the finals of a major tournament and they suffered their biggest loss on November 9, 1996. The minnows were beaten by Macedonia 11-1 in front of home fans in Eschen.
