• While the men's senior sides have never met before, Estonia and Serbia's women's teams were pooled together in 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying. Serbia beat their rivals 4-0 at home this March but lost 1-0 in the return fixture in Rakvere.
• 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).
