Luxembourg hosts Serbia in round 6 of Euro qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 10th at Stade Josy Barthel (Luxembourg)
Luxembourg is breaking into European football. The team left the company of suppliers of points that were once approximately equal to it - the teams of San Marino, Andorra, and Liechtenstein. In the current qualification, Luxembourg lacked just a bit to take away points in a home match against the leader of a group, Ukraine, having conceded a goal in the 93rd minute. The team even was ahead. Truth be told, only 6 minutes of the 1st half. By the way, after that match, the management of Dynamo Kyiv liked the forward of the Red Lions Rodriguez so much that it bought him. And he has already played 3 matches in the club and scored 2 goals. Luxembourg also won a home match against Lithuania and tied with it away. So, the reception of the Serbs is unlikely to be hospitable. The squad of Luxembourg is not as simple as it seems. Almost the entire first eleven (except da Mota) plays in Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Ukraine, Russia, France, and Germany.

Serbs fail these qualifiers. In the last round, it lost to Portugal at home (2-4). A little earlier, Serbia lost in Ukraine, where the Shevchenko team generally declassified it with a 5-0 score. Between those matches, the Serbs beat Lithuania (4-1). Well, it is not an indicator at all. The team does not have the proper mutual understanding on the pitch. As they say, everyone hogs the blanket. As for defense, the men of Tumbakovic, under whom the chair is not something that is staggering but is already standing on only one leg, look helpless. Neither Maksimovic, nor Milenkovic, nor Nastasic, nor even the most experienced Kolarov know where to run, whom to cover, whom give the ball. The visitors scored all 4 goals from the penalty area.
Nevertheless, Serbia has not t lost the chance to break into the European Championship yet. The team needs to win the remaining matches. The Serbs will do it in Luxembourg, though it won’t be easy. However, we shouldn’t wait for their landslide victory. As I noted above, Luxembourg is progressing. It plays in defense very reliably. The team conceded just 5 goals in the group. It bites in counterattacks. It scored Lithuania, Ukraine, as well as Georgia, Belarus, and Bulgaria a little earlier... Luxembourg may well upset the Serbs and score a goal given their unsure game in defense. And it will certainly not lose with a difference of more than 2 goals. The last time a similar incident happened to them a year and a half ago in a friendly game against Austria. Since then, the Red Lions became more experienced, played 14 matches and showed a +2.5 handicap in all of them. Most likely, they will manage to do it again.
Prediction for the match: Luxembourg to win with +2.5 handicap
