Match in Focus


Albania v Wales

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Albania have scored twice in their last eight matches
Expert verdict
Wales will be down in the dumps after failing to top their Nations League group following a home defeat to Denmark on Friday, although they take a serious drop in grade against an Albanian side, who not only played 24 hours later so are more fatigued but also did so with ten men for 70 minutes of the 4-0 loss to Scotland.
