Estonia vs Belarus prediction, preview, team news and more
Estonia receives Belarus at A. Le Coq Arena during qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Friday.
Estonia are winless in their four qualifiers so far and find themselves at the bottom of the Group E standings of the European qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.
Belarus are also winless in the competition since the opener with the victory over opponents on Friday in March.
Belgium should qualify in the group while the hosts and visitors have one and three points respectively to their credit. For the moment, the two teams have only their pride to play in the competition.
