Estonia and Cyprus will square off at the A. Le Coq Arena in the first leg of their UEFA Nations League play-out tie on Thursday.

The hosts are coming of a 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in November last year. Jakub Brabec and Jan Sykora scored second-half goals to guide the Czechs to victory.

Cyprus, meanwhile, fell 2-1 away at Slovenia in a FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifier, in their last outing. Miha Zajc and Adam Cerin's second-half goals rendered Andronikos Kakoullis' strike a mere consolation.

Estonia vs Cyprus Prediction

The two teams are horribly out of form, but they will fancy their chances of getting something out of this game.

There is little to separate the two teams on paper, so the spoils could be shared in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Estonia 1-1 Cyprus.
