The home side will be looking to keep their winning run going. They claimed a 2-0 home win over Liechtenstein in the UEFA Nations League during the last international window in September. Victor Stina stepped off the bench to score a brace in injury time and inspire his side to victory.

Azerbaijan triumphed over Kazakhstan with a 3-0 victory on home turf. Filip Ozobic and Anatoli Nuriev scored in the final 16 minutes to inspire their side to a win over their 10-man visitors.

Wednesday's fixture is one of two friendlies lined up for Moldova in this international break. They are due to take on Romania next week.
