Russia to Win

Russia enter the fixture on the back of a five-match winless run. The National Team was woeful in the UEFA Nations League and did not inspire confidence during their international friendly against Moldova in November 2020. However, they have done well against teams of lower stature, and call upon a 0-5 win over San Marino in recent history.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Stanislav Cherchesov's men have seen twenty goals in their last five away games. With one outing accounting for 0-0, four of the games Russia have been involved in have seen the Over come in. In contrast, two of Malta's games have seen the Over 2.5 being realized.

Both teams to score – Yes

Malta have scored in each of their last five outings at home. Only Sweden managed to claim a clean sheet against them and it came back in 2019. On the other hand, Russia have conceded in three of their last five away games. A similar statistic is observed for the visitors in their most recent five outings.

Malta vs Russia: Team News and Match Preview

Malta

Since achieving their highest FIFA ranking of 73 in 1992, Malta now sits at 176. They have improved their low of 184 and gave a good account of themselves in the UEFA Nations League. For the event in Russia three years ago, the small island country managed a single draw and nine defeats from their ten outings. However, they have a tall order in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. Dvis Mangia will hope Luke Montebello continues his rich vein of form against the visitors which has seen him score five goals across his last four competitive club games.

Russia

The National Team faithful will hope Stanislav Cherchesov's men improve on their form. They are on a six-match winless run, which has put their #39 FIFA ranking in jeopardy. Against Malta, they will be looking to right their recent form with a win over the supposed punching bags of their World Cup 2022 qualifying group. Russia have managed four 4-0 away wins in their last 11 qualifying wins versus bottom-pot teams. Stanislav Cherchesov will have his squad grilled for the meeting and expect Artem Dzyuba to add to his three goals in Russia’s last five away competitive wins.
