Malta vs Faroe Islands Prediction & Match Preview

Malta vs Faroe Islands
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Saturday, 23rd March 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Ta’Qali National Stadium (Ta’ Qali).

These two teams were included in the same group in the League D of UEFA Nations League. Both are considered minnows in world football, and especially in European stages. With the likes of Spain, Sweden etc in the run for Euro qualification, gaining experience will be the realistic priority of either squad.

In their group stage games, Faroe Islands surely won the battle. Though both finished last in the group, the Islands managed to stay one spot above last-placed Malta.

Despite their status as minnows, the game will be competitive. The reason being, this game represents, practically, the only chance for either to shine in front of the world stage.

Malta vs Faroe Islands Prediction

Faroe Islands won their first h2h meeting in the Nations League group stages 3-1, and managed to draw the other game 1-1. The team has also registered four of the last five h2h wins and has scored two or more goals in five of their last six meetings.

Moreover, Malta was winless in an embarrassing 45 of their last 48 games and is on a streak of 16 winless matches. At home, they have not tasted a win in the last 15 fixtures.

Faore, on the other hand, was unbeaten in six of their last ten games. The team also finished higher in the group than Malta, in the Nations League. And finally, Faroe avoided a win in every meeting against Malta so far except one. With momentum surely in the favor of Islands, it’s aptly expected that the team will come out unscathed this Saturday.

Every single tie between these sides has always seen plenty of goals. In fact, 100% of their meetings satisfied the BTTS condition, and except for a single encounter every other one had three or more goals.

With this tie being the lone realistic chance for these teams to perform well, expect them to go out strong, and look for a win. This will necessarily lead to goals at either end of the pitch.
