They finished both of these above the very foot of the standings in their respective groups and they are very much looking forward to a step up in UEFA’s new competition Nations League.

Lars Olsen’s troops will be the campaign there with the clash against Malta on Friday evening at Torsvollur, a very winnable affair for them given the opposition are truly one of the weakest sides on the continent.

Unlike their rivals, Malta took just a single point in their WC qualifying group bagging no more than three goals in 10 outings.

Michael Mifsud, who made the international debut back in 2000, is still with the team and could even make an appearance here against Faroe Islands in spite of being 37 at the moment. It best describes how limited Maltese attacking line is.

Faroe Islands vs Malta: Head-to-head

  • This will be the fifth head to head match between the two teams.
  • Faroe Islands won three and lost one of four so far.
  • However, Malta’s lone victory came just in their previous encounter played in November 2013 (3-2).

Faroe Islands vs Malta: Prediction

We just have to see the hosts as clear favourites to bag the inaugural victory here knowing they’ve been in a much better form of late.

Faroe Islands picked up as many as nine points in their respective WC qualifying group and they notched as many as three goals in the thumping of Liechtenstein in their previous friendly in late-March.

The head coach Olsen can be thrilled with his men’s defensive displays of late as the hosts conceded just one goal in last four matches (including qualifications and friendlies).

Moving forward, he’ll have his main star Joan Simun Edmundsson (scored two goals in last four league games for Arminia Bielefeld in 2. Bundesliga) on disposal here.

Faroe Islands to win can be regarded as a banker bet at 1.70, while you’ll obviously hardly make a mistake backing the hosts to keep a clean sheet at 1.80.

Faroe Islands vs Malta: Bet Tips

  • Faroe Islands to win @ 1.70
  • Faroe Islands to keep a clean sheet @ 1.80.
