Match Preview

It’s a battle at the bottom of Group F as the Faroe Islands attempt to get their first win of this European Championship qualifying (ECQ) campaign, and only their fifth ever ECQ home victory. Three of their previous four ECQ home wins came ‘to nil’, although every previous H2H versus Malta has seen both teams score (W4, D1, L2).
A 3-0 defeat to Romania in their last home match also made it four competitive home losses in a row, albeit two of those games were goalless at half-time. In fact, their last six games (home/away) have finished with the Faroes losing by at least a two-goal margin, although the last time they won a game was a 3-1 home victory against Malta in September 2018.
Malta travel here seeking their first ever ECQ away victory, yet having lost their last six such fixtures ‘to nil’, hopes probably aren’t high. This campaign, two of their three ECQ away games saw Malta trail at half-time, which has also been the case in the previous three H2Hs held here.
Furthermore, having scored over 1.5 goals in just one of their 23 ECQ away fixtures since the turn of the century, and without a clean sheet in their previous 23 games (all matches), there’s no wonder Malta are outsiders here.
Players to watchJóan Edmundsson has been the Faroe Islands’ first goalscorer in five of the seven games he’s scored in – including the last H2H held here.
Goalscoring defender Andrei Agius has netted in five international games, four times as Malta’s first goalscorer. Both teams scored in all five matches.
Stat attack: The Faroe Islands were winning at half-time in their last six wins.
Eight of Malta’s previous nine defeats have been by at least a two-goal margin.
The last three H2Hs have seen an average of 6.67 yellow cards per fixture.
