Estonia vs Belarus Match Preview
Neither of these teams will qualify directly for Euro 2020, but Estonia may just have a slightly greater sense of urgency here which could enable them to sneak a narrow victory.
These two former Soviet republics are the makeweights in qualifying Group C which has a fascinating battle taking place between Germany, the Netherlands and Northern Ireland for the two automatic places at next summer’s European Championship finals.
Estonia and Belarus have lost the seven matches they have played between them so far. However, Belarus will not be overly concerned because, due to their results in the UEFA Nations League last autumn, they know they will be contesting the play-offs next March against three other teams from the bottom-ranked bracket for one berth at the tournament.
Therefore, it’s all about being ready for the spring as far as Belarus manager Mikhail Markhel is concerned and with automatic qualification now essentially impossible, he can treat the remainder of this campaign as something of an experimental process selection-wise.
For Estonia, it is different. They do not have the play-offs to look forward to, so manager Karel Voolaid needs to take each match equally seriously in order to try to improve the nation’s footballing fortunes and make them more competitive on the continental stage.
Although thrashed in Germany last time out, Estonia previously made Northern Ireland work very hard to maintain their 100% record in the group and may just have the hunger to get off the mark in this pool with a win.
