England vs Malta Head To Heads

England and Malta have played each other four times before, including one friendly, two European Championship Qualifiers, and once already in this 2018 World Cup Qualifying Campaign. The first two of those matches took place way back in the 1972 European Championship Qualifiers, when England triumphed 5-0 at home and 1-0 in Malta. The pair then didn’t meet until a friendly in 2000, when Malta went into half-time drawing 1-1, before succumbing 2-1 to a 75th minute goal by Emile Heskey. However, England again kept a clean-sheet when it mattered most, winning 2-0 at Wembley in October.

Malta’s Home Form

Malta have yet to win a single point in 2018 World Cup Qualifying but, after starting with a 5-1 home defeat to Scotland, they have showed steady improvement. They only lost to a solitary 47th minute goal to Slovenia, whilst they were drawing 1-1 with Slovakia until the 41st minute, before eventually losing 3-1.

England’s Away Form

Despite topping Group F, England have hardly been convincing against much lower-rated opposition, though Malta do rank the lowest of them all. England scraped a win in Slovakia when Adam Lallana netted in the 95 minute, whilst they failed to find the net in Slovenia. They really should have won in Scotland but, after squandering chances, they were lucky to eventually come away with a draw after Harry Kane rescued their blushes in the 93rd minute.

Malta vs England Half-Time/Full-Time Prediction

England are a best-priced 7/2 to be winning at both half-time and full-time, but Gareth Southgate’s team have yet to score until the 70th minute so far in any of their 3 away matches in Qualifying. They also failed to breakdown the Maltese defence until the 29th minute at Wembley, and failed to find the net in the second-half. Therefore, purely from a value perspective, a draw at half-time and England to be winning at full-time looks a value bet.

Half-Time/Full-Time Prediction: Draw/England @ 22/5 BetVictor


Malta vs England Correct Score Betting

England have conceded in only one of their six games so far in qualifying, whilst Malta have scored in just two of their six matches, meaning the 1/4 for England to win to nil is about fair. However, with Harry Kane and many of England’s attacking players yet to really hit form in the Premier League this season, I’d much sooner play England to win 1-0 or 2-0.
