The game will take place at Andorra’s new National Stadium, where a recently-laid 3G artificial surface has been given the go-ahead from UEFA officials.
The pitch has attracted some headlines, there was even talk the game could be moved to Barcelona, Liverpool midfielder Allen does not believe it will cause his side a problem.
“It doesn’t matter what pitch we play on, whatever surface, our focus on is how we play and perform,’ Allen said.
“We have got to be confident whatever happens – we are there to get three points, and we have got to make sure that’s what we do.
‘We would prefer to play on grass, that’s what we do week in week out and it’s an obvious preference.
‘But we’ve all played on artificial surfaces enough times to know what to expect from it, and it’s not a problem.
‘It’s not been an ideal situation not knowing where we were playing the game. It’s been more of an issue for fans with their travel arrangements, and you feel for them.
While Wales have struggled in recent years, their form is world cup winning when compared to that of Andorra. The minnows of European football last won a game in 2004 when they beat Macedonia 1-0 in a World Cup qualifier with their last point coming 12 months later in a 0-0 draw with Finland.
This will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides.
