Malta welcomes Norway
Malta welcomes Norway at the Ta’Qali National Stadium in a match from Group F of the Euro 2020 qualifiers. In our free football betting tips for the weekend we will spend some minutes to take a look at this game.
For Malta this game is a chance to escape the bottom of the group standings and eventually overtake the Faroe Islands at fifth place. Most likely even a point in this match would be enough for the Maltese team to climb up to fifth place.
Of course, it sounds easier than it is actually. In 9 games played so far in this group, Malta’s record is one win and eight losses. It’d be surprising if they actually manage to take a point or three from a much stronger team like the Norwegian.
For Norway this is a gold opportunity to beat Romania for the third place in the group. Right now the Scandinavians are fourth, but having the same amount of points as Romania. In the same time the Romanians had a very difficult visit to Spain, which means that Norway have the chance to take the third spot.
In their last five games Norway are unbeaten – two wins and three draws. In their last game Lars Lagerback’s boys hosted the Faroe Islands and celebrated a solid 4-0 win. Trabzonspor’s Alexander Sorloth scored twice for the hosts, while Tore Reginiussen and Iver Fossum also put the ball in the net.
In our free football betting tips for the weekend we believe that Norway won’t miss this opportunity and they will win against Malta. They must hope that Spain will make them a favour and they won’t lose against Romania, which would allow the Scandinavian team to climb up in the standings. As for Malta, they are not in their best shape during this campaign, so nobody will get surprised if they lose.
