Moldova meet Kosovo in Italy for a UEFA Nations League match on Thursday. Moldova suffered a poor Euro qualifying campaign with Kosovo narrowly missing out. Who will prevail in Parma?

Moldova Form


Moldova failed to qualify for the UEFA European Championship, finishing bottom of Group H. They won once and lost the remaining nine matches.

Some of the results were respectable, notably finishing with a 2-1 defeat in France and 2-1 loss against Iceland. Unfortunately there were too many thrashings including two 4-0 defeats against Turkey and a 4-0 defeat to Albania.

Manager Engin Firat took over in October but Moldova have lost all five matches since. That includes a 1-0 loss against Sweden in a January friendly.

Moldova Team News


Moldova have a weak squad which is led by experienced defenders Alexandru Epureanu and Igor Armaș. 

Scoring goals is a big problem for this team with no striker scoring more than one international goal.
