Slovakia vs Malta Prediction 8 October 2017

Tournament: 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification
Location: Stadion Antona Malatinskeho
Match date: 08.10.2017 at 17:00

On October 8 2017 at 17:00 in Trnava at the Stadion Antona Malatinskeho Slovakia national team will play against Malta national team in the upcoming regular game of the 10th round of the 2018 World cup qualification.

Slovakia have only participated in the World cup finals once in their history. Yet, this time they actually have chances to take the second place in the table of their group. In their latest game on October 5 Slovakia visited Scotland. On the 23rd minute they had their player sent-off and yet they successfully defended for the most part of the match. Yet, the goal they conceded on the 89th minute led them to the second loss in a row. It also made them lose their second place and now they are two points below it.

As for Malta, they usually take part in the qualifications for the World Cups and the Euros and yet they have never made it to the finals of them. Besides, Malta played their latest home game against Lithuania on October 5. The visitors had much more dangerous attempts and they mostly had control over the motion of the match. Anyway, both teams managed to score once before the final whistle and it let Malta gain their first point in the current qualifiers.

The upcoming game on Sunday will be the sixth one played between Slovakia and Malta. We must admit that in the previous five games Slovakia won. Last time they met was at the end of March this year and Slovakia won 1:3. Slovakia need to outplay Malta with as many goals as they can and expect Scotland to lose points with Slovenia to take the second place in the group. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts will manage to win with a lot of goals scored in the upcoming match.
