Luxembourg take on the visitors Malta in a friendly international match. The match will be played on Friday, June 9th.
Luxembourg are gradually transforming into a mid-level team in the continent. Although Luxembourg still has more defeats than positive results, there has been noticeable progress in recent years. As for the upcoming match, Luxembourg appears to be more preferable in this friendly battle. The team has become quite active in their attacking play, and they are capable of scoring 2-3 goals against easier opponents. In 2022, notable results for the team include a 3-3 draw against Turkey and a 2-2 draw against Hungary. As for the current year, there isn't much to boast about yet, as they lost 0-6 to Portugal and played a goalless draw with Slovakia. Clearly, Luxembourg's attack will strive to open their goal account in 2023.

Malta have also slightly raised the level of their game in recent years. However, when comparing Malta's progress with that of Luxembourg, the upcoming match's visitors are clearly inferior. This year, Malta has only suffered defeats, losing 0-2 to Italy and 1-2 to North Macedonia. As for the upcoming match, bookmakers predict a win for the hosts, and it can be agreed upon since Malta's results are already unimpressive, particularly when playing away from home. In the previous two years, Malta managed to win only once on foreign soil, and that victory was against San Marino, a team that didn't score. Regarding the match's goal-scoring potential, as it is a friendly match, there is no need for the teams to sit back and defend, and as I mentioned earlier, Luxembourg doesn't hesitate to attack against similar opponents. Therefore, there are indications that the match will be high-scoring.
Luxembourg still appear to be the favorite in this encounter, and my bet will be in their favor. I have decided to go with the option: 1X + Over 1.5 goals. It is possible to hedge against a draw. However, if a draw occurs, it is much more likely to be a 1-1 or 2-2 scoreline rather than 0-0. Luxembourg plays with great enthusiasm in matches against similar opponents, and they are likely to create a couple of goal-scoring opportunities.
Prediction for the match: Luxembourg not to lose and Over 1.5 scored goals.
