Faroe Islands play host to Liechtenstein on Monday evening looking to end a run of three successive defeats in all competitions. Preview: Faroe Islands vs. Liechtenstein – prediction, team news, lineups, Live Stream. Meanwhile, the visitors have lost four games in a row, their latest defeat coming by a 7-0 scoreline against Switzerland on Friday night.
With the Faroe Islands having won just one of their last 10 fixtures, it is easy to negatively judge their progression under Hakan Ericson.
However, aside from a heavy defeat in Scotland, one of the minnows of the international stage have performed as expected since the appointment of the Swede in 2019.
The biggest challenge ahead of Ericson is being able to take this squad to the next level with seven home matches in succession due to be played until November.
The first of those came against Iceland on Friday night, the Faroe Islands only succumbing to a 1-0 reverse courtesy of a goal 20 minutes from time.
At a time when they were pushing the two-time major tournament participants all of the way, Liechtenstein were being thrashed by Switzerland in St Gallen.
Given that their hosts rested a number of their star men, the result will concern Martin Stocklasa who has now witnessed his team concede 16 goals in three fixtures.
The Blue-Reds have now gone eight games without success, the only two draws during that period coming against San Marino and Gibraltar.
Although Liechtenstein scored just twice during that period, Yanik Frick has shown signs that he could eventually emulate his legendary father Mario, whose 16 goals for his country is a national record.

Despite this fixture being a friendly, Ericson may prioritise trying to end the season with a victory over rotating his squad.
Joannes Danielsen, Andreas Olsen and Klaemint Olsen appear most likely to come into the Faroe Islands team if Ericson opts for some fresh legs.
While Stocklasa could react to his side’s capitulation on Friday, it is worth noting that they were only trailing by one goal when substitutions were made at half time.
With that in mind, Liechtenstein may line up with a similar starting XI with experienced midfielder Aron Sele most likely to be handed a recall.
Sandro Wolfinger is also an alternative to Maximilian Goppel in defence.
Faroe Islands possible starting lineup:
Gestsson; Danielsen, Faero, Vatnsdal, Davidsen; Valnhamar, Hansson, Andreasen, Hendriksson, M.Olsen; K.Olsen
Liechtenstein possible starting lineup:
Buchel; Brandle, Grunenfelder, Hofer, S.Wolfinger; F.Wolfinger, Sele, Frommelt, N.Frick, Salanovic; Y.Frick

We say: Faroe Islands 2-1 Liechtenstein
Both teams will view this fixture as the ideal opportunity to end their run of defeats. While we would not be surprised to see a low-scoring draw, the home side should be capable of edging this contest by the odd goal in three.

Faroe Islands vs Liechtenstein Preview
The Faroe Islands (FIFA ranking: # 113) lost to Iceland on Friday, failing to match their longest streak without a loss at home (five games) and recording a third straight loss in the process. Slow starts have been to blame as of late as the Faroe Islands have not led in HT in a single match during their current seven-game winless streak (D3, L4).
However, the last victory for the Faroe Islands was at home against humble Andorra (# 158), after they opened the scoring in the first 20 minutes. Surprisingly, in a sequence dating back to 2004, each of their last ten home wins has seen them net first and consequently they lead in HT in eight, including the last H2H here in 2018.
European minnows Liechtenstein lost 7-0 to Switzerland last time, posting their worst defeat since September 2017. They also conceded more than 6 second-half goals in that match for the first time since 2016, but they expect a decent result here, already. who have recorded their victories only against teams ranked # 90 or worse.
Unfortunately, Liechtenstein have also conceded more than 3 goals in eight of their last ten defeats and in each of the previous three H2Hs. Meanwhile, exactly half of Liechtenstein’s last 14 matches played on foreign soil have seen them lose both in HT / FT, while conceding first in the first 20 minutes in the last four (D1, L3).
