Match date: 25/03/2021

One of the European minnows Andorra welcomes Albania in the first match of WC2022 qualifiers. In my opinion the victory of Albania here is out of question but the problem here will be how much motivated will Albanian players be and how much pressure they will put to this match when in three days they will play England at home. 

 

Albania had a successful Nation League campaign and managed to finish top of their group and qualify for the League B. Away from home they won against Belarus 2-0 and drew 0-0 against Kazakhstan and Lithuania but in both those matches they dominated the opponents, and were unlucky not to win. Some years ago it would have been a major success if Albania got a point away from home, but now the quality of the team has improved a lot.

 

For this match I don’t expect Andorra to cause a lot of problems to Albania. I expect them to defend deep and try to surprise Albania by counter attacks. Albania is expected to field a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 formation and in back three will be all players playing in Serie A, defenders like Gjimshiti who is doing great with Atalanta, Kumbulla who plays for Roma and Ismajli who plays for Spezia. So a very good back line which I believe will handle Andorra sporadic attacks. While upfront Reja is expected to field Uzuni, Manaj and Cikalleshi who are doing very good lately. Uzini is performing very well in Ferencvaros and has been scoring regularly, Manaj is playing also very good in Barcelona B while Cikalleshi has been in good form lately in Turkey with Konyaspor.

 

On the other hand Andorra will hope to defend well and try to sneak a point here, but seeing their latest matches where they finished bottom of League D where they were thrashed by teams like Malta, Latvia and Faroe Islands.

 

To sum up, having in mind the difference in quality between the two teams it will be a huge surprise to see Albania not wining this match and I believe they will be able to cover the handicap too.
