Malta vs Faroe Islands
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 17 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Ta’Qali National Stadium, Ta’Qali.
Even though we are talking about the lowest tier division in UEFA Nations League, upcoming clash between Malta and Faroe Islands is going to be very exciting. Hosts need to win the match in order to gain promotion to League C, but they were already beaten by this opponent in a couple occasions recently.
Malta have been on fantastic run of four victories in the last five appearances across competitions, so we were slightly surprised to see such high 2.87 rate on home victory. Faroe Islands have wasted good opportunity to win the group last weekend. They needed a win in Latvia but that duel ended without winner 1-1 FT. All in all, there are a couple of solid betting opportunities here.
Malta vs Faroe Islands Head-to-head
The most recent head to head clash between these opponents ended in five-goals thriller. Faroe Islands emerged victorious in Torshavn by winning the match 3-2 FT. They were down by one goal all until the 87th minute when Andreas and Brandur Olsen scored two quick goals. That was second straight win for Faroe Islands against Malta.
When it comes to all time stats, Malta have two victories, one draw and six losses. Grand total of goals scored in those encounters is 31, which averages around 3.50 per duel.
Eight out of nine duels ended with BTTS.
Malta vs Faroe Islands Prediction
Malta have stayed in the race for top spot thanks to two victories achieved in the last two UEFA Nations League outings. They were victorious last weekend against Andorra 3-1 FT and earlier on the road against Latvia 0-1.
Goalless draw against Andorra in October was probably the turning point and significantly lowered chances for promotion. Steve Borg has been on fire lately, scoring two goals in the last three appearances.
Faroe Islands are one of the most pleasant surprises when it comes to League D. They scored eight goals in five matches so far, which is the best result in official campaigns for years. We are not expecting them to park the bus and hope for a point on Tuesday. All signs are pointing at direction of another high-scoring affair.
