Malta vs Spain Betting Preview – 26/03/2019

Malta vs Spain

Malta have a mountain of a task to overcome this Tuesday when they welcome Spain to their Ta’ Qali National Stadium for their second European Championship qualifying match. Ray Farrugia will be hoping his side can build on the previous victory they secured, but the chances of doing so against Spain are close to impossible. Luis Enrique will be expecting nothing less than the full three points from this fixture, with his side looking to qualify from Group F with flying colours. These two sides have met a total of seven times in the past and all seven games have ended in defeat for Malta. During those seven meetings, Spain have racked up 36 goals in comparison to Malta’s four.

Malta got off to a perfect start during their first match with them securing all three points against the Faroe Islands, but this looks like the only three points they will secure until they face the Faroe Islands for the second time. Before their previous win, Malta had gone a huge 16 games without a single win. Malta had a poor outing during the Nations League which saw them finish at the bottom of their group, after securing just three points from six games. SkyBet has the hosts to secure all three points priced at 40/1.

Malta holds a very poor record against Spain and the chances of them scoring a single goal are minimal. The hosts have failed to score a single goal against their opponents in the last four meetings between these two sides. Kyrian Nwoko bagged his sides opening goal against Faroe Island and you Bet365 are offering odds of 22/1 for the forward to score again.

Spain are strong favourites to qualify from Group F, with SkyBet offering odds of 1/7 and Luis Enrique’s men should be looking to finish the group stages without a single defeat. After a losing out to England and Croatia in the Nations League, Spain failed to qualify for the Semi-Finals leaving them with a lot to prove in the Euros. Over the last five games, Spain’s only losses came in the Nations League, but they now find themselves enjoying back-to-back wins against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Norway. SkyBet has Spain to win priced at 1/50 and if you back them to win with a -3 handicap they have a price of 8/11.

We’ll be expecting a big win from Spain on Tuesday if they can perform to their usual standards when facing Malta. Spain have only scored less than three goals against Malta in one of the seven meetings between these sides. You can back Spain to score over 3.5 goals at a price of 4/6 with Bet365. Rodrigo Moreno bagged his sides first goal against Norway and can be backed to score first again, with Betway at a price of 5/2.
