Italy To Win To Nil

Reason for tip

Malta have conceded either two goals or less in each of their last 11 games, but it should be a comfortable one, as they look to rediscover their defensive resolve. The last four meetings between these two have seen Italy win to nil, and a prediction for the same to happen again on Sunday looks good here.

Italy 2-0

Reason for tip

Malta have put in defiant performances as of late, even in defeat. Narrow losses against North Macedonia and Ireland, as well as a draw against 51st-ranked Greece and a win over 76th-ranked Israel have shown that Malta are no pushovers and this may be closer than many think. Italy are still most likely to win, but it will not be as easy as it seems. A correct score prediction of 2-0 Italy looks good.

Malta vs Italy Predictions

Tip Reasoning

  • Each of the last four meetings between these two have seen Italy win to nil
  • Malta have conceded two goals or less in their last 11 games – including games against Ireland, Greece and North Macedonia

Italy looking to bounce back

Italy will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to England on Thursday night, as they travel to face Malta. They will be confident of securing a result against a side who, despite their defiance and resilience in recent games, have won just once in their last five games.

It seems unlikely to be a landslide victory for the Italians, with Malta have conceded either two goals or less in each of their last 11 games, but it should be a comfortable one, as they look to rediscover their defensive resolve. The last four meetings between these two have seen Italy win to nil, and a prediction for the same to happen again on Sunday looks good here.

Malta are defiant

Malta, despite their low world ranking of 167, have put in defiant performances as of late, even in defeat. Games against North Macedonia (65th-ranked) and Ireland (48th-ranked), which saw them lose by a one goal margin, as well as a draw against 51st-ranked Greece and a win over 76th-ranked Israel have shown that Malta are no pushovers and this may be closer than many think.

Italy are still most likely to win this one, but it will not be as easy as it seems. A correct score prediction of 2-0 Italy looks good, as they should be fairly comfortable, but will struggle to blow their opponents away.
