Moldova vs Austria: Preview and Predictions
Nobody could have predicted such a downswing for the Austrian national team after they have won nine of ten European Championship Qualifiers in the previous term.
Das Team picked up no more than two wins in eight matches of their World Cup qualifying campaign leaving them with nothing to play for in the final two fixtures in October.
Can the Austrian poor shape leave the opportunity for Moldova to celebrate the first win of the campaign and try and escape the very foot of the Group D standings?
The main problems for Igor Dobrolovskiy and his men popped out at the back as they allowed as many as 20 goals in eight matches (more than three per game).
They have, however, failed to find the target in back-to-back losses to Serbia and Wales in September.
The Swiss manager Marcelo Koller is going through the most difficult period since taking charge of the Austrian national team back in 2011.
The visitors claimed only a single victory in last nine matches in all competitions and they conceded a goal in each of their last four outings.
Moldova vs Austria: Head to head
Austria won four of previous five H2H encounters with Moldova who managed to score only two goals during the process.
This includes a 2-0 victory for Das Team in March this year at Ernst-Happel-Stadion with late second-half goals from Marko Arnautovic and Martin Harnik.
Moldova vs Austria: Prediction
The quality is on Austria’s side, but the momentum is not. The visitors have been quite vulnerable at the back in this qualifying term (for their standards) and we’d be surprised not to see Moldova on the scoresheet here.
