THE TEAM NEWS

SAN MARINO

  • San Marino are yet to register their first goal in this EURO 2020 qualifying campaign and will view this game against Kazakhstan as their best opportunity to do so as they attempt to end their desperate run of 16 matches without scoring.
  • As always for the minnows, it has been difficult for them to compete and in what is a relatively tough group, it will come as little surprise that they have conceded 43 goals at an average of over five per game.
  • San Marino have tried many different options in their attempt to break their duck and their best chance may come from youngster Nicola Nanni with the 19-year-old already collecting seven caps in his career so far.

KAZAKHSTAN

  • Kazakhstan will want to put three consecutive losses behind them as they travel to San Marino with high hopes of picking up their third win of the qualifying campaign with a third place finish not out of the question.
  • They will have to overcome their last three results, although they were competitive in all of them and only lost out by a single goal to Russia and Cyprus while Belgium were able to beat them 0-2.
  • Having defeated San Marino 4-0 when they hosted them in June, the Kazakhs will be confident of another big win in this contest and will be looking to midfielder Islambek Kuat to add to his tally of four international goals.

THE PREDICTION

San Marino will be desperate to end their run without a goal and will settle for that even if it does not result in a positive result against Kazakhstan. The home side know this is their best chance in this qualifying campaign to end that run but the visitors will not make it easy for them. Having picked up two wins so far, Kazakhstan will be confident of adding to their tally and they should be able to do just that whilst prolonging San Marino’s woes in front of goal in the process.
