Estonia entertain Belarus at the A. Le Coq Arena in FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying action on Friday.

Estonia are winless in their four qualifiers so far and find themselves at the bottom of the standings in Group E of the European qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.

Belarus are also without a win in the competition since the opening fixture with that win coming against Friday's opponents in March.

Belgium are expected to qualify from the group while the hosts and the visitors have just one and three points to their names respectively. At the moment, the two sides only have their pride left to play for in the competition.

Estonia vs Belarus Prediction

Both teams have struggled to record favorable outcomes in their recent outings. In the World Cup qualifiers, they have scored six goals and conceded 15 so far.

Though we don't expect the game to be a high scoring one, injuries in the squad for Belarus and home advantage for Estonia, mean a win is on the cards for the hosts.

Prediction: Estonia 1-0 Belarus
