Estonia will look to complete a UEFA EURO 2012 double over Serbia having earned a shock 3-1 victory in Belgrade when the nations met for the first time in Group C on 8 October.

Match background
• Back in the autumn, Estonia recovered from falling behind to Nikola Žigić's goal on the hour as they emerged victorious through strikes from Tarmo Kink (63) and Konstantin Vassiljev (73) before a late Aleksandar Luković own goal settled things in added time.

• Kink said: "This is the most important result in the history of Estonian football and of our national team. We have never beaten teams like Serbia before. We did not expect this result, we just wanted to play good football. Perhaps the Serbian players did not take us seriously."

• Eight games – four two-legged ties – have been contested between Serbian and Estonian outfits in UEFA club competition. All four of those ties ended in success for the Serbian team, with their combined record against Estonian opposition reading W5 D1 L2 (W4 D0 L0 in Serbia).
