Although Malta are likely to lose they can keep the score respectable.
Malta sit rock bottom of Group F after six games with just two goals scored and 15 conceded, though despite a big fat zero in their points column, they’ve actually fared slightly better than usual as four of their defeats were either 1-0 or 2-0, including when they came to Wembley. However, England have typically been excellent in qualifiers, and when facing teams outside the top 150 (we have Malta 173rd) they’ve led at both half-time and full-time in each of their last six, keeping a clean sheet in all of these games and netting 32 times.
Malta have lost all 13 games against top-20 sides (we have England 17th) since 2008, trailing at the break in all but one of these and netting just twice. Preference is for the win to nil though, given the Three Lions have netted just once before the interval in their four away games under Gareth Southgate. At 1.33 an away win to nil is a banker that could boost any accas across the international break.
Malta v England [England To Win To Nil]
In the last six of these 13 defeats Malta have managed to keep the score down, never conceding more than twice (including four games against the Italians). With that in mind we’re going to back England/under 2.5 goals at 3.8. Indeed, under Southgate, England only put two past Malta as previously mentioned, whilst they only won 2-0 against Lithuania and were held to a goalless draw by Slovenia, and as they’re not even top scorers in a relatively weak group we’re not convinced they’ll pull a huge win out of the bag. England 2-0 represents the best value for correct score punters out there as to win by less would ultimately been seen as a disappointing result.
