Tip Reasoning

  • Estonia are ranked 59 places higher than Malta by FIFA.
  • Estonia played in a higher division last campaign and opened this one with a win.
  • Malta failed to win all three H2H meetings in this century (D1, L2).

A battle of minnows

Both Malta and Estonia opened their Nations League campaigns with respective 2-0 wins over perennial whipping boys San Marino, so this game looks huge in terms of the promotion race in this three-team group.

Both sides sit outside of the top-#100 ranked nations, yet it is Malta (#169) who are one of the five worst ranked UEFA sides by FIFA, a considerable 59 places below their visitors, Estonia.

That gulf in ranking has been justified in their three meetings across the last 15 years, with Estonia managing to traverse all without defeat (W2, D1). Another positive result would go a long way to building their confidence, as Estonia failed to even get on the scoresheet in four of their last five games.

Stick with the visitors

While Estonia’s raw form appears woeful – and it is – the Nations League provides a sphere in which they can be competitive in. As the relegated side in this group, victory here will go a long way to securing an instant return to League C, so we predict that Estonia can win this.

We are taking Estonia in the ‘draw no bet’ market though, as Malta have proven a plucky bunch at times with four of their six Nations League home games ending in stalemates (W1, L1).

As for the correct score, we fancy Estonia to just about edge a low-scoring, tense encounter by a 1-0 scoreline.
