While plenty of countries in Europe are preparing for the European Championships, Moldova and Cyprus have to settle for a relatively meaningless international friendly encounter.

Moldova current form

In March, Moldova played two friendlies against North Macedonia and the Cayman Islands.

They drew 1-1 with the former and defeated the latter 3-0.

In Euro qualifying, they finished fourth in Group E behind Albania, Czech Republic and Poland and ahead of Faroe Islands. Moldova did acquit themselves well in the group, though, as they finished just one point behind Poland, who eventually qualified for the Euros via the playoffs.

Cyprus current form

Like Moldova, Cyprus played two friendlies in March.

They drew 1-1 versus Latvia and were defeated 1-0 by Serbia.

Unfortunately for Cyprus, they were one of the worst teams in qualifying as they finished rock bottom of Group A after losing every single game.

Moldova vs Cyprus Team News

Both squads head into this one having been selected recently, so there are no current injury concerns.

Ion Nicolaescu is a key player for them, having scored 15 goals in 42 international games so far in his career.

Notable names in the Cyprus squad are Ioannis Pittas, Joe Mall, Andreas Karo, Alex Gogic and Konstantinos Laifis.

Scoreline Prediction

Cyprus will still be reeling from the awful Euro qualifying campaign, and although Moldova don't have much to play for, they should be winning this one.

Moldova 3-0 Cyprus

FAQs

What was the score the last time Moldova played Cyprus? In 2011, Cyprus defeated Moldova 3-2 in a friendly.
