Malta welcome the visitors Faroe Islands in the Euro Qualification – Round 1. The match will be held on Saturday, March, 23rd, at the Ta’Qali National Stadium (Ta’Qali).
The hosting Malta are winless in 16 latest rounds of which they drawed just 5. It’s not the reason though to consider the team outsiders in their home clash with Faroe Islands. The last head-to-head between the opponents was held on Malta’s side too. The UEFA Nations League fixture ended level then, 1:1.

The visiting Faroes are by all means progressing. 10 years back, they were normally defeated by a margin of 3-4 goals at least, now the rivals need to take them more seriously. Apart from the draw against Malta, the side also count the stalemates versus Kosovo and even Hungary. Also, they featured wins over Lichtenstein, Andorra, Lithuania, and yet Georgia.
Still, these achievements are not enough to count on Faroes’ victory away. The Faroe Islands national team are mostly staffed with foreign performers (there are around 3-5 local players, 2 of which are goalkeepers), but they compete in Denmark, Norway, and Iceland, and their clubs cannot be labeled elite at all. The travelers also have Edmundsson who fights for Arminia Bielefeld in the 2.Bundesliga. Thus, they outclass the hosts a bit, as the latter are mostly made of performers playing domestically. This advantage is leveled by Malta’s home pitch and local support though.
Before the last meeting that found no winners, Malta were victorious over Faroes at home. Overall, the teams clashed 6 times: 4 matches saw Faroes succeed; 3 victories were registered on their side and 1 was in Malta yet in 1997. The guests will hardly celebrate another win there tomorrow.
Prediction for the match: Malta to win or Draw.
