Moldova vs Austria (EURO 2016 Qualifiers, 09.10.2014)

Austria goes to Moldova with a clear mission in sight: the three points that will allow them to keep the course of the qualification. The visitors are the overall favorites to win due to the fact that their squad has more experience in the international fixtures, players in strong European championships that could decide the match without too much hustle.

Moldova has changed their manager after the first group match and now Alexandru Curtianu called up new players to the team, to shuffle the squad and offer playing time to everyone. Their best known player at this moment is Ionita from Hellas Verona, but the most expensive one is Alexandru Epureanu, currently playing in Turkey, and his net worth is 2 million Euros. Moldova tries to be better in front of their supporters who could point the visitors towards the fact that they might up the defensive line. The hosts are unable to win for four matches now, three of which they lost without being able to score at least a goal.
Austria is on an unbeaten streak for five matches, having won three of them and their latest result is a 1-1 draw against group favorites, Sweden. Their main player is Bayern Munich’s David Alaba, with a net worth of 35 million Euros and at his 22 years he has already 33 caps for his country, and managed 7 goals. Their danger will rely also on the wings where the likes of Arnautovic, Junuzovic and Harnik are in prime position in the goalscorer market. Another particularity working in the visitor’s favor is that once they settle on the field, into the formation given by Marcel Koller, it becomes very difficult to overcome or surprise them.

Meanwhile, Moldova’s coach is confident his side is able to produce the surprise and win against Austria, “Moldova hasn’t produced surprises for a long time. I’m confident that we can achieve a positive result. Earning qualification for the 2016 European Championship is the objective set by the Moldovan Football Federation. We will make effort to achieve this goal.” The two teams previously met only twice, and each won one game, but now the stakes are higher and the odds smaller.
Bet365 favors Austria to win outright, at 1.70 while Moldova gets 5.75 odds for the same market. The visitors are recent specialists in draw which got 3.75 odds with the bookmaker. Should both teams focus on defending, not many goals will be scored which makes the under 2.5 goals betting market at 1.66 odds with Bet365 a shoe-in market. Austria to win and both teams to score has 4.33 odds; Moldova for the same market has 12.00 odds. Arnautovic and Harnik to score anytime have 3.10 odds, Alaba has 4.00 and Eugen Sidorenco has 4.33 odds as an anytime goalscorer. We are betting 7 units on Austria to score in both halves with 2.75 odds from Bet365.
