Luxembourg ended its Nations League adventure with a draw. The red lions end up in second place in their group.
It took only a few days for everything to fall apart for Luxembourg. Leader of group C1 before their 5th match of the Nations League on Saturday, the Luxembourgish team lost in Cyprus and then drew (0-0) against Azerbaijan, thus saying goodbye to their first place.
Dominating in the first half during which Sinani saw his penalty repelled by the goalkeeper, the Luxembourgers - deprived of Gerson Rodrigues and Anthony Moris, who tested positive for coronavirus - were happy to see Azerbaijan fail to realise two clear chances at the end of the game.
A draw that will certainly make the team regret Saturday's defeat against Cyprus, a real turning point for Luxembourg in the Nations League. Mainly because Montenegro won 4-0 against the same Cypriots and validated their first place in the Nations League on Tuesday evening.
The red lions thus finish second in their group with a record of three wins, one draw, and two defeats, three points behind Montenegro. This Nations League campaign remains satisfactory after a successful first edition in League D two years ago. However, the Luxembourgers, who had the potential to snag a spot in League B, are sure to regret the missed opportunity.
