Malta Preview – Falcons’ promotion hopes to come to an end?

Devis Mangia’s Malta find themselves in second place in the group with just one match to play. The Maltese are still in the hunt for promotion to League C after taking eight points from five games. So far, the Reds have won two, drawn two and lost one.

Malta started their campaign with a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Faroe Islands in Torshavn, which could cost them, but they have struck back with two wins and two draws since. The Maltese drew 1-1 with Latvia and 0-0 with Andorra in their next two.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1412 GMT, Monday 16 November)

Back-to-back wins over the Latvians and Andorrans have kept their promotion dreams alive. Steve Borg’s 97th-minute goal gave them maximum points in Riga. They then came from behind to beat Andorra 3-1 in Ta’ Qali last weekend.

Faroe Islands Preview – Ericson’s side to seal promotion to League C

Faroe Islands are just one point away from guaranteeing their place in Nations League C for the next campaign. Hakan Ericson’s men are unbeaten in five Group D1 fixtures, winning three and drawing two.

The Faroes started with an excellent 3-2 home win over Malta, which was followed up with a 1-0 victory over Andorra in Andorra la Vella. They then drew with Latvia before beating the Andorrans 2-0 in Torshavn.

If Faroe Islands had beaten Latvia in Riga last weekend, Ericson’s side would already be preparing for life in League C. However, a 1-1 draw has halted their celebrations. Nevertheless, can they get the job done in the National Stadium in Malta on Tuesday?


Malta vs Faroe Islands Betting Advice

It was a Nations League thriller when the pair locked horns at Torsvollur in Torshavn in September. Late goals from Andreas Olsen and Brandur Hendriksson turned the match around to give the Faroes a 3-2 home win. Faroe Islands have won three of the past five meetings.


Key Facts – Malta vs Faroe Islands Betting Tip

  • Malta have won only one of their previous five against Faroe Islands
  • The Faroes won the reverse fixture 3-2 in Torshavn back in September
  • Ericson’s men are undefeated in five Nations League D, Group 1 matches, winning three and drawing two


Both teams have so much to play for in this one. Only a sizeable victory will do for Malta, while a draw will be more than enough to promote Faroe Islands to League C. The Maltese will not go down without a fight, but our money is on the away win here. Back the visitors to win and both teams to score at 5/1.

NSI Runavik striker Klaemint Olsen has scored four times for Faroe Islands in this Nations League campaign. His goals have fired the nation to the cusp of promotion, and we fancy the 30-year-old to get his name on the scoresheet in Malta on Tuesday. Back Olsen to score anytime in this one at 23/10.
