Spain vs Malta Prediction
It is crystal clear that the qualified table toppers, Spain, will take all three points from the match with Malta.
Malta has been struggling with only one win in the tournament so far. They are literally the punching bags of the group having conceded 18 goals from their 7 defeats while scoring just two goals.
Apart from the victory at home against Faroe Island in the opening match, they haven’t recorded any positive outcomes in the events until now. Significantly, their 3 points came from home and are completely dry in their away fixtures.
In the upcoming match, Malta has no hope of getting a win unless Robert Moreno decides to play easy having qualified for the Euro already.
Sergio Ramos and his boys have been invincible in the contest so far. The host has been unbeaten in the tournament group stage with 6 wins and 2 draws. They have scored 19 goals and conceded only 5 goals in the process. In their previous match with Malta at the latter’s home ended in a 2-2 score on the board.
Significantly, 9 of their 20 points were recorded at home in the table. Also, the hosting side has pulled two draws against Sweden and Norway recently in the same 1-1 scoreline.
Apart from that, Moreno has been playing with lesser main players and giving more chances to young players recently. It has to be doubted that the qualification to Euro has induced thoughts inside Gaffer’s head to rest the senior players and try the young legs.
As such, we can count on Spain to win but without much fiasco in the ninety minutes.
