Malta vs Faroe Islands
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ta’Qali National Stadium (Ta’Qali).
Malta and Faroe Islands are about the hit the court for the last time in 2018 on Tuesday evening when they play each other in the final round of the Nations League group phase. Neither of these two sides can be proud of what they’ve done so far competing the likes of Kosovo and Azerbaijan in the battle for the top spot in the group and a chance to qualify for the European Championship 2020.
The Faroese team began the campaign in a very promising fashion with a 3-1 victory over Malta in September. Nevertheless, they quickly returned to the old habits halting their push for the top spot in the group with a 2-0 defeat to Kosovo just days after.
The team led by Lars-Christian Olsen continued to play in a dismal fashion in November when they picked up only a single point from clashes with Azerbaijan and Kosovo. Can they at least finish the year with a victory over Malta?
Malta vs Faroe Islands: Head-to-head
Faroe Islands have a positive head to head record in matches with Malta.
They saw off the Maltese squad on four occasions in five games so far.
It is interesting to mention that each of five head to head outings saw goals scored at both ends as well as three or more goals.
Malta vs Faroe Islands: Prediction
Since neither of the two sides can be particularly proud of their defensive efforts, we would not be surprised to witness another high-scoring affair when they take on each other at Ta’Qali National Stadium.
Three of last five of Faroese matches saw three or more goals scored, while each of four of Malta’s Nations League affairs produced goals at both ends before November’s fixtures. There is a massive value in backing goals at both ends here. The alternative pick would be draw since Malta have already kept the likes of Azerbaijan to two 1-1 draws so far in the campaign which is why won’t take them as underdogs on the home soil here.
