On Tuesday evening, Malta faces the Faroe Islands for a League of Nations D League fixture. Malta can no longer climb while the Faroe Islands should have validated their accession to League C.
Malta vs Faroe Islands Soccer Betting Prediction – UEFA Nations League
Dropped in the standings in its qualifying group for the Euro, Malta could only take 3 points in 10 games and logically finished in the last place in its group behind Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania and the Faroe Islands. The 180th nation in the Fifa rankings will therefore obviously not play the European Championship and barely scores a good figure in this League group D where it was beaten by the Faroe Islands in September (3-2). Since then, the Knights of Saint John have been undefeated. Held in check by Latvia (1-1) and Andorra (0-0), they won in Latvia (0-1) and easily dismissed Liechtenstein in a friendly last week. Saturday, they receive Andorra.
For their part, the Faroe Islands started well enough to try to move up to League C. First in their group with 10 points on the clock before facing Latvia this weekend, they beat Malta (3-2) and Andorra twice (0-1 and 2-0). On the other hand, this selection could not do anything in a friendly against Denmark (4-0) last month and was also beaten last week by Lithuania (2-1).
The workforce for Malta vs Faroe Islands
The vast majority of the Maltese squad play year-round in the weak domestic championship apart from midfielder Teuma (Union Saint-Gilloise) and striker Gambin (Colchester United) who have been able to export abroad. Otherwise, the emblematic figure of this team is 39-year-old veteran striker Michael Mifsud (143 caps, 42 goals).
For the Faroe Islands, the entire workforce plays in the local championship or in relatively unknown clubs in Scandinavia. Authors of 5 goals each in the selection, captain Hansson (Horsens) and striker Olsen (NSI) are the players to watch in this team.
