Our prediction for this Nations League match:
After suffering a shocking loss to Gibraltar, Liechtenstein will be looking to return to winnin ways in the Nations League when they face minnows San Marino at Rheinpark Stadion. Liechtenstein aim to regain top position in the standings, and, no doubt, they will go all guns blazing at San Marino on Wednesday evening. When the two teams met in Serravalle last month the Blues-Reds defeated Franco Varrella’s troops without any difficulties.
San Marino have always been serving as a cannon fodder for their rivals in qualifiers for big tournaments, and given their dreadful losing run, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. You should bear in mind that the visitors are on a 40-game losing run in all competitions ahead of the trip to Vaduz. Liechtenstein are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over San Marino.
Highlighted Team (San Marino):
San Marino played their first official match back in 1990, with the team suffering a 4-0 loss to Switzerland in the European Championship qualifiers. The minnows often serve as a cannon fodder for their rivals in competitive games, but it has to be noted that they did well to hold Estonia to a goalless draw in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
San Marino have yet to record a win in the qualifiers for the major tournaments, but on April 28, 2004 they recorded a hard-fought victory over Liechtenstein in a friendly match and that is considered their biggest achievement. “La Serenissima” welcome their rivals at San Marino Stadium and the capacity of the venue is only 6.664.
San Marino footballers wear blue shirts and blue shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kits is white. It is well known that San Marino have never participated at the finals of the FIFA World Cup or the European Championship.
