Kosovo have been able to get several positive results against teams around them in the FIFA rankings. Even though all of their three wins in the last five games have been at home, Malta have every reason to be worried about facing Bernard Challandes’ team. Malta have been at the end of several bad results over the last few months. The home win over Andorra seems a long while back.
Total goals over 2.5
Malta have been without a clean sheet in six matches. The team’s last clean sheet was against Liechtenstein in a friendly back in November 2020. Since then, Devis Mangia has seen a deterioration of his team’s defensive performance. The 46-year-old will be aware that Kosovo have a decent scoring record even on the road.
Both teams to score – yes
Kosovo have been able to find the back of the net in five out of their last six away games. In fact, Bernard Challandes’ team have been able to score even against high-profile opponents like Spain. They will be a formidable opposition, while home advantage is also likely to lead to goals with Mangia’s team aiming for their first goals since March.
