Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Neither of these sides are prolific in front of goal but they both have pretty underwhelming defences. Malta have only kept clean sheets against San Marino across their last seven games. Meanwhile, both teams have scored in all of Republic of Ireland’s previous four outings. Both teams to score looks a possibility.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

We’re expecting a pretty close game and with both teams successfully hitting the back of the net in all of Republic of Ireland’s last four matches, we think a low scoring draw could be on the cards and will side with this one finishing 1-1.

Malta vs Republic Of Ireland Predictions

  • The only side Malta have kept a clean sheet against across their last seven games is San Marino.
  • Both teams have scored in all of the Republic of Ireland’s last four matches.

Backlines are less than dependable

Malta had a miserable qualifying campaign as they finished rock bottom and conceded a colossal 30 goals across their ten matches. But since the qualifiers came to an end, they have begun to hit the back of the net with more frequency and have managed to score in all of their last six games. However, their defence still shows vulnerabilities and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in five of their last seven games, only successfully doing so in two fixtures against San Marino.

The Republic of Ireland fared a little better but were thrown into a group consisting of Portugal and Serbia. They still managed to secure two victories and conceded just eight goals in that time but their defensive stability has regressed lately having conceded in six of their last seven outings.

Goals at both ends possible

Neither of these two outfits have shown much in the defensive department and we really like the look of both teams finding a way to get on the scoresheet in this encounter.
