Albania go head to head with San Marino on Tuesday in a game that the hosts will expect to win comfortably.
Edoardo Reja’s side currently sit third in Group I behind England and Poland, proving that they are not a team that can be taken lightly, having beaten Andorra and San Marino 1-0 and 2-0 back in March, with a narrow 2-0 defeat to Euro 2020 finalists England in between these games. Since their loss to the Three Lions, they have also beaten Hungary 1-0 via a late strike from Southampton’s Armando Broja.
In their game away at San Marino, Reja’s men had 26 shots and 79% possession, showing that they have the capability to score a lot when they take on the European minnows at home, having endured a frustrating game away where it took goals in the 63rd and 85th minutes from Rey Manaj and Myrto Uzuni to take all three points.
So far in qualifying, San Marino have conceded 19 goals in five matches, including seven against Poland last time out.
