Faroe Islands vs Albania match preview

Can Albania keep pace with Group E’s two heavyweights?

On Saturday, the Black and Reds get off the mark in Euro 2024 qualifying by beating Moldova 2-0 in Tirana.

Jasir Asani and Nedim Bajrami the scorers at Arena Kombëtare.

Before this, Sylvinho’s side had began this campaign with a 1-0 defeat in Warsaw and, if the Eagles are going to claim a top two finish, they’ll have to usurp either Czechia or Poland.

Given that it’s more or less impossible for Albania to get into the play-off via their Nations League performance, they need to achieve this if they’re going to feature at Euro 2024.

As for Faroe Islands, they were easily beaten 3-0 by Czech Republic in Tórshavn at the weekend.

Håkan Ericson’s side came so close to beating Moldova in their matchday one fixture in March, conceding an 88th minute penalty to draw 1-1 in Chișinău, so sit bottom of the section.

The Faroes have enjoyed success in the last two editions of the UEFA Nations League, but have won only two of their last 25 European Qualifiers, beating Malta in 2019 and Moldova in 2021.

So, it won’t be easy, but Albania should be able to leave Tórsvøllur with the win they need.

Faroe Islands team news

Klæmint Olsen and Heini Vatnsdal were the scorers the last time the Faroe Islands won a qualifier two years ago, but Olsen, who’s the squad’s top-scorer, could be left on the bench here, with Petur Knudsen leading the line.

Albania team news

Star striker Armando Broja is out long-term, so Sokol Cikalleshi will keep his place up front.

Etrit Berisha will captain the side in goal, with Aberdeen midfield Ylber Ramadani also starting.
