Moldova vs Kazakhstan – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Draw no Bet – Kazakhstan

Moldova and Kazakhstan have both struggled on the international stage for quite some time, though the visitors to the Stadionul Zimbru have shown enough fight on the road over the last year to suggest they can claim a positive first leg result in Chişinău. Kazakhstan have won two and avoided defeat in five of their last 11 away games, while Moldova have lost five of their last six on home soil. With those records considered, a stake on Kazakhstan with a safety net in the draw no bet market appeals this week.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both Moldova and Kazakhstan tend to toil in the goalscoring department and a low-scoring tussle could ensue when the sides meet on Thursday. The hosts have notched just three times in their last six competitive fixtures combined, while Kazakhstan have found the net just four times in their last seven assignments. With attacking quality thin on the ground in both camps, back under 2.5 goals to be registered at the Stadionul Zimbru.

Half Time Result – Draw

Tension is expected to be high in Thursday’s Nations League relegation playoff first leg clash and with both teams determined to avoid making key early mistakes, a cagey start to the fixture is anticipated. Kazakhstan haven’t scored a first half goal since November last year, while Moldova haven’t notched a first half strike in a competitive fixture since March 2021. The factors here suggest that backing a draw in the half time result market could be a play worth chasing.
