Malta vs Slovenia
2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – Europe, Group F.
Date: Friday, 11th November 2016
Kick-off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Ta’ Qali Stadium, Malta.
Malta know that they won’t be going to the World Cup and as expected they are already at the foot of the group just looking for some points to make it all respectable. After 3 games and 3 losses they have conceded 9 goals and did really well in losing only by 2-0 to England in London. Then again at home they have already lost 5-1 to a very average Scotland side. From the past five games Malta have lost four of them and drawn 1.
Slovenia’s World Cup chances are in the balance and so this is a must win game for them. There is a chance they can go into 2nd place and past Lithuania if they can get all three points here. Despite Malta being the underdogs the feeling is that the home nation can make life difficult for Slovenia and the away side will really have to work for this result.

Malta vs Slovenia: Prediction
The Malta game should not be a huge problem for Slovenia a team that are enjoying a decent run with 3 games now unbeaten. This includes an impressive 0-0 game against England shutting out many Premier League stars.
Slovenia have always scored at least 3 goals against Malta and they might need that on Friday to finish them off.
