Malta vs Luxembourg: Preview and Predictions

Malta vs Luxembourg
International Friendlies
Date: Thursday, 22 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Ta’Qali National Stadium (Ta’Qali).

The likes of Malta and Luxembourg rarely get the chance to grab wins, but they’ll have one on Thursday evening when the two teams are set to lock horns in an international friendly at Ta’Qali National Stadium.

Luxembourg have had an interesting campaign in the recently finished World Cup Qualifications where they’ve managed to collect six points in ten games. Such return was enough for Luc Holtz and his men to avoid the very foot of the Group A standings. The team has managed to hold mighty and star-studded France to a goalless draw on the road during the process and they have shown it was not an exception later on grabbing some interesting and surprising results in the upcoming fixtures as well. The visitors have also been successful in November’s friendlies beating the likes of Hungary 2-1 with goals from Aurelien Joachim and Marvin Martins.

Malta, on the other side, have only managed to clinch a single point in their respective qualifying group netting just three goals in ten games along the way. However, we must mention the shocking 0-1 victory in a friendly with Ukraine last summer.

They’ve hired Tom Saintfiet as the new head coach aft6er the mentioned qualifying campaign, but the Belgian manager did not have much success on his debut which saw Malta fall 0-3 at home to the likes of Estonia in a friendly.

Malta vs Luxembourg: Head-to-head

The two teams have played each other four times over the history and none of these encounters has seen three or more goals.

Luxembourg have won 2, drawn 1 and lost 1 of these four games.

Malta, however, came on top in the most recent clash, back in 2012 (0-2 in a friendly).

Malta vs Luxembourg: Prediction

This should definitely be another low-scoring affair between these two sides and backing the Under 2.5 goals FT bet is our top suggestion at the odds of 1.75.

As for the outcome, we’ll go with Luxembourg to win at 2.45 given that the visitors have been enjoying much better results on the last couple of years.
