Romania vs Malta Match Preview
These two will play the last of two European Championship Qualifying games on Sunday afternoon after both were beaten on Thursday in their first. Neither team expected to win those games, but we expect both will be happy with how they played in them.
Romania came close to shocking Spain, losing narrowly 2-1 after piling pressure on the Spaniards when they went down to 10 men towards the end of the game. There was a lot to like about Romania on that occasion, and this is a big step down in class for them, which should make like much easier.
Malta also performed fairly well to keep the score down away in Norway. They were beaten 2-0 on Thursday and while they didn’t really threaten to score themselves, they can take heart in the way they defended to keep genuine chances to a minimum. This will be another tough away day for them, and one where they will have to far much better than when beaten at home 4-0 by Romania back in June.
Romania are the clear favourites here and should win this game, although the 90 minute market is of no interest to punters. Elsewhere, we are going to look at the over/under goals market for a little more value in the game. We were impressed with the way that Malta defended on Thursday in Norway and we think they can replicate that performance again here, so we are going to back under 3.5 goals in this game, and hope they can keep it tight. As for a correct score in the game, we fancy it to be a comfortable evening for Romania, and for them to win the game 2-0.
