Our Prediction:

Norway will win

Norway – Malta Match Prediction | 06-09-2019 14:45

Josh King might get a rest ahead of the match against their rivals, even if he is their top player, as could others like Stefan Johansen. Lars Lagerback has some choices to make here in regards to his starting XI with a match against Sweden on the horizon. In terms of the squad, goalkeeper Andre Hansen, defender Martin Linnes, midfielder Mohamed Elyounoussi, and forward Ola Kamara are among those that did not earn a call up.

Anyhow, given the importance of Thursdays football game for the Norwegians, we believe that home win should be considered. Norway are more of a team than Malta, therefore, the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed. AIK attacker Tarik Elyounoussi will be one of the men to watch in the home team. The Maltese national team kicked off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 2-1 win over Faroe Islands, but the team than suffered a dip in form, suffering a loss in each of their following three group games.

They have only one win from the matches so far against Faroe Island. Malta lost all the rest of three games consecutively, with conceding ten goals in the period. They will be playing the second game on road against Norway who is hosting the third, having tied the previous two matches. Malta is pretty much one of the underdogs in the group.

Norway vs Malta Correct Score Prediction

All the players in the Norwegian team are doing good and are ready to participate in this clash. Their coach Lars Lagerbck shouldnt have too much problem with choosing the starting eleven for this game but will have to worry about the best tactics that will ensure as easy as possible win for his team. Johnsen, their top scorer is the player to watch in this match.

They will give their best to try and stop their winless drought, but it will be very tough for them because according to all the facts Norway is a clear favourite in this fixture. On the other side, Malta has started this competition enthusiastically with a 2-1 win against Faroe Islands, but unfortunately for them when the tougher opponents came in to play they started to lose, game after game, and consequently recorded 3 loses in a row against Spain, Sweden and Romania while conceding 9 goals.

Also, the fact that the hosts will be looking to grab as many points as possible, so they can catch up with the teams that are currently in the top of the group F standings. All those facts go in favour of Norway being the obvious favourite to win this match. In those 5 clashes, Norway has conceded just 1 goal, while scoring 16 goals in total. All in all, I believe that we will see a match with lots of goals, although only on one side, and a game in which the hosts ultimately prevail. In their last 5 H2H matches Norway was victorious in all of them, and they even managed to keep a clean sheet in 4 games.

Both of them got goals in the victory, giving them a nice start and ensuring they didnt get absolutely nothing from the group immediately. However, they did get some over the Faroe Islands to start the group stage, and that was thanks to Steve Borg and Kyrian Nwoko. Malta rarely have any joy in matches, and thats especially the case in qualification. Neither, though, are prolific as those were their first goals for their nation.

Both teams are still low in the standings so we are about to see an exciting match, where the opponents will give their best to try and improve their current positions in the group.

Norway vs Malta Head-to-head (h2h)

Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Odegaard is certainly one to keep an eye on. The Rosenborg man has five goals now in 13 caps, making for nice reading for them and a nice back up. King might not feature here, but if he doesnt they still have a big threat in Bjorn Maars Johnsen, who will enter this match in fine form having scored twice in the victory at the Faroe Islands. The 20 year-old is growing into his role for both club and country, and the improvement is visible each and every time out.

Its not likely, but it is still mathematically possible at this point. Group F has started as many would have predicted, with Spain running riot in front with 12 points from a possible 12. They have left everyone in their wake, with Sweden and Romania trailing by five points already. If either are to have a legitimate chance of progressing, they have absolutely got to win this match and then go on a sustained run. Down in fourth is Norway who have five, while Malta have taken three.
