Estonia invite San Marino to the A. Le Coq Arena in their first group stage fixture of the UEFA Nations League on Thursday.

The two sides are drawn alongside Malta in Group 2 of League D, the fourth and lowest division in the competition. Only one of the three teams will progress into League C.

This is the first game for the hosts since their 2-0 defeat against the Czech Republic in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in November. San Marino lost all 10 games in their qualification campaign and also lost the two friendly games they played in March against Lithuania and Cape Verde.

San Marino have scored just one goal in their last seven games across all competitions and were able to score just once in their FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign. Their struggles in front of the goal are expected to continue here.
