Moldova vs France: An Easy Game for the World Champions

Moldovaand France meet at the Zimbru Stadium on Friday, 22nd March for their firstEuropean Championship qualifying match.

Moldova and France will play their first Euro 2020 qualifying game this weekend, and the hosts could not have a tougher start to the competition. 

Moldova lost to Kazakhstan earlier this year, but last year they enjoyed victory over San Marino and draws with Belarus and Luxemburg. However, they are facing the World Cup winners. Since the World Cup, France have continued to win, defeating the Netherlands, Germany and Uruguay. However, they were held to a draw by Iceland and lost to the Netherlands, so they are not infallible. 

This is the first meeting between the teams and both are sure to fight hard for the full three points. France are currently ranked second in the world while Moldova are one-hundred-and-seventieth. The hosts are sure to give it their all, but given France’s superior form it is likely to be very difficult to hold them at bay.
