Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Albania will be aiming to keep their promotion hopes alive when they welcome Kazakhstan at Air Albania Stadium in Tirana in round 5. Midfielder Qazim Laci is banned for the match, but, no doubt, there is enough quality in Reja Edoardo’s team to beat Kazakhstan at home ground. The Black Eagles have been impressive at the back in the Nations League this season, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in their penultimate group game.
The Kazakhs, on the other hand, failed to find the net in the previous two group matches, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Albania’s party in Tirana. In their last meeting in Albania the Black Eagles defeated the former Soviet Republic, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Sturm Graz attacker Bekim Balaj will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team.
