Draw

This is a match between two teams who have been very vulnerable in different areas of the pitch. Malta are without a victory since beating Andorra back in November, while Cyprus have been unable to get an away victory since beating Kazakhstan back in October 2019. Such poor form is unlikely to result in a victory for the two teams, who have made a poor start to the group stages as expected. Cyprus have been able to get a victory while Malta are yet to achieve this feat.

Total goals under 2.5

The recent meetings between these two national teams took place back in 2003. In recent in contrast, they have been very poor going forward. Cyprus have been able to get a victory despite scoring just one goal in their three group matches. Malta are slightly better on this front but they have been defensively shoddy with eight goals conceded already.

Goals from both teams – no

The two outfits are likely to struggle going forward and Malta will be quite pleased to know this fact considering that they have been very exposed by opposition attack in recent matches. Malta will be happy that this is a Cyprus team with just one goal in the group stages so far.
