Malta vs Romania Match Preview
Romania will see this game as being a must-win if they are to have a realistic chance of qualifying for next year’s European Championship tournament.
These countries have surprisingly never met before, but Romania’s first visit to Malta may not be a particularly easy one because the hosts have compiled a decent record at their National Stadium in Ta’ Qali this term.
More often than not Malta have avoided defeat at home, albeit two of those five matches were against the Faroe Islands (one win, one draw) and the other 1-1 stalemate they played out occurred when Azerbaijan were the opponents.
Spain won 2-0 at this venue in March, admittedly not with their strongest team, but it is not a fixture Romania can afford to take lightly if they are to finish among the top two in the group table, vying with Sweden and Norway as well as the former world and European champions.
Both teams were in action on Friday (results not known at the time of writing) with Malta travelling to Sweden, while Romania were on the other side of the Scandinavian border – although a long way from Stockholm – as they took on Norway.
While Romania are expected to win this match we can see Malta putting up a good fight and being far from disgraced by the final scoreline, with a narrow away win our idea of the most likely outcome.
