Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Gibraltar will be aiming to keep their 100% record in League D intact when they take on San Marino in Serravalle on Saturday. Gibraltar have been playing above expectations in the Nations League this season, and a win over San Marino will see them secure promotion to League C. The visitors are eager to get their job done in Group 2, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Franco Varrella’s troops.
San Marino did well to hold Liechtenstein to a goalless draw in their last group game, but they extended their dreadful winless run in all competitions. La Serenissima have little to play for in Saturday’s clash, and given the importance of the match for the Group 2 leaders, away win should be considered. When the two teams met at Victoria Stadium earlier in the process Gibraltar defeated San Marino thanks to Torilla’s goal on the stroke of half-time.
Highlighted Team (Gibraltar):
Gibraltar played their first unofficial match against Jersey in the 1993 Island Games. The Gibraltarians suffered a 2-1 loss to Jersey, but they did well to hold Slovakia to a goalless draw in their first official international match. Gibraltar participated in the 2016 World Cup qualifiers and they were drawn in Group D alongside Germany, Poland, Georgia, Republic of Ireland and Scotland.
They failed to impress on their debut in the World Cup qualifiers and it has to be noted that the minnows suffered a loss in each of their ten group games (goal difference 2:56). Gibraltar recorded their first ever win against Malta on April 6, 2014 and that is considered the team’s biggest success.
Danny Higginbotham, who played for the likes of Manchester United, Southampton, Sunderland, Stoke City and Sheffield United during his professional career, has three caps for Gibraltar national football team and he is considered the greatest player who whore Gibraltar shirt. The Gibraltarians play their home games at Estadio Algarve, speaking of qualifying matches.
