Slovenia vs Malta World Cup Qualifier Match Preview 10th June 2017

Slovenia vs Malta
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group F)
Date: Saturday, 10th June 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: SRC Stozice, Slovenia.

Slovenia will be massive favourites to beat Malta when the two teams meet on Saturday. For Slovenia this match is a must win since they could go 2nd and get into the play-off positions. Slovenia will be expected to win this game with ease and they have earned some good results including a 0-0 over group leaders England.

Their only loss so far was against Scotland away which they lost 1-0. The biggest problem for the nation is their lack of goals- they have only managed 4 so far from 5 games and local media have been critical of them for this.

Malta as expected are bottom of the group, they have lost all 5 games, scored 2 goals and conceded 13. Away from home, even though they have lost, they have recorded respectable results losing only 2-0 on both occasions to England and Lithuania. There has certainly been an improvement on defence.
