Moldova take on Denmark at the Zimbru Stadium
The hosts find themselves rooted to the bottom of the group, while the visitors lead the way in the table and will look to maintain their 100% record.
Moldova’s horrid World Cup qualifying run continued last time out as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against fellow strugglers Faroe Islands.
It was the third consecutive loss for Roberto Bordin’s men, who were beaten 2-0 by Austria before falling to a 1-0 defeat against Scotland.
With just one point from their opening six outings, Moldova are currently rock-bottom in Group F.
In stark contrast, Denmark continued their blistering run of results last time courtesy of an emphatic 5-0 victory over Israel.
Kasper Hjulmand’s men have now won six of their last seven games in all competitions, scoring 18 goals and conceding three.
Denmark are yet to drop points or concede a goal in Group F of the qualifiers and this stellar performance sees them occupy top spot with 18 points.
Moldova vs Denmark Head-To-Head
This will be the second-ever meeting between the sides, with the Danes claiming an emphatic 8-0 victory in their first encounter back in March.
