Malta Slovakia betting prediction


Preview
Malta and Slovakia meet , in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Europe (1st Round). The only recent head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 04‑09‑2014, and ended in a (1‑0) win by Slovakia. Malta registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Malta

The home team is currently in the 6th position, no points won yet, after 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Lithuania by (2‑0). In the last round, they have lost a home match against Slovenia by (0‑1). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 draws and 13 losses in away matches; against 2 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a home loss against Iceland by (0‑2). Malta has won 1, tied 2 and lost 5 of the last 8 home matches.

They have lost the last 4 matches for this competition. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in all of the last 4 matches, and their offense needs to do better, since they haven’t scored goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 4 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 6 out of 8 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. In fact, they haven’t opened up the score in the last 15 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 14 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Malta is the 192nd place in the FIFA rankings and has been having a poor but expected performance in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying rounds in Group F with no points so far and certainly will not be able to qualify for the Russian Cup. The team scored only 1 goal, being the worst attack of their group, and conceded 10 goals, having the defense more leaked and these figures demonstrate the great fragility both in the offensive system that score few goals, and in the defensive system that suffers goals regularly. Playing at home, as this match on Sunday, Malta lost their two games for Scotland and Slovenia, and has averages of 0.50 goals scored and 3 goals conceded, once again showing the problems both in attack and defense. Overall in the qualifiers, they scored their only goal in the first half, more specifically between 0 and 15 minutes.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Hogg, C. Attard, J. Zerafa, R. Camilleri, S. Magri, Z. Muscat, L. Gambin, G. Sciberras, P. Fenech, A. Schembri, J. Farrugia.

Analysis of Slovakia

The away team is currently in the 3rd position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 2 losses. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Scotland by (3‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Lithuania by (4‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 10 conceded. In their last match, for the Friendlies, they got an away loss against Sweden by (6‑0). In the last 10 away matches Slovakia has won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 7 of the last 10 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 13 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Slovakia have been performing reasonably well in the qualifiers for the Russian Cup and are in the top half of the qualifying table Group F with 50% of the points played so far and it is worth noting that it is 4 points behind the leader England, and victory in the next game is essential to not let the English team open up even with greater advantage. The team scored 7 goals, being the most positive attack of their group, and conceded 2 goals, having the second defense less leaked and these figures demonstrate the good balance between the offensive and defensive sectors, since it has scored goals with good regularity and its great strength. Playing away from home, as the match that will make this Sunday, Slovakia made only 1 game until the moment where it was defeated to Slovenia by 1 to 0 in a very balanced match where the principal knew how to take better advantage of the opportunities created and the visitor had low offensive volume. In general, the team usually scores more in the first half, as 4 of their 7 goals took place in the first stage, especially between the 15 and 30 minutes where they had 2 goals.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Kozáčik, P. Pekarík, T. Hubočan, M. Škrtel, M. Škriniar, P. Hrošovský, R. Mak, J. Kucka, J. Greguš, V. Weiss, A. Nemec.

Betting suggestion:

This confrontation tends to be quite unbalanced, considering that the client has a cast of very low quality, while the visitor has a good cast that is fighting for a place in the next World Cup. Malta has serious problems both in their defense and in their attack and has not won 15 games for all competitions, while Slovakia has an offensive system that usually scores goals and a very solid and efficient defense. In view of the technical disparity between the national teams, we believe that Slovakia will win the squad and win the match by a good margin of goals, even if they are far from their dominions.
