Slovenia to Win

Both Slovenia and Malta will be hoping for Croatia to capitulate and claim the win for themselves to get into the qualification slots for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The dreams of the visitors will be dashed in this meeting as we anticipate a win for Slovenia at the Stozice Stadium. Matjaz Kek’s men have won all four of their meetings with the Falcons and should comfortably add to their tally.

Over 2.5 Goals

The last two meetings between Slovenia and Malta finished with an Under 2.5 goals scoreline. However, the two meetings prior saw seven goals with Over 2.5 goals conclusions. Given the fact that Malta’s last six fixtures have finished with goals aplenty, this qualifying match should follow the latter trend.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The last time Malta made the trip to Slovenia, they failed to trouble the scorers. The scoreboard had a similar reading in the match before as the destinations were changed. In their four meetings, three have seen Slovenia keep a clean sheet but that should not be the case in this qualifier. Malta has scored four goals in their last two outings and should trouble the scorers as we expect both sides to be represented on the scoreboard.

Slovenia vs Malta Fixture Preview

Slovenia

Matjaz Kek will want his charges to claim the three points on offer and put their disappointing losses to Cyprus and Russia behind them. Slovenia are still in the race for top-slot and need the win over Malta to strengthen their bid. With Jan Oblak between the posts and Josip Ilicic marauding the opposition’s third, the necessary ingredients are in place to get them closer to their objectives.

Malta

Where Slovenia failed, Malta has found success. The Falcons have impressed in their Group H outings, scoring six goals whilst shipping in eight goals. Their abject defeats to group leaders Croatia and Russia will haunt them, but they will feel confident in the fact that they can come on level terms with a win over Slovenia. It will be a tough task as they have failed in each of their four previous attempts.
