The chairs back in the European Championship qualification is great. At least since the field of participants in France in 2016 was increased to 24 teams, many smaller teams have high hopes to once participate in a European Championship. Well, for the islanders from Malta this will not apply, but for the upcoming opponent from Norway anyway.
Norway vs Malta Soccer Betting Tips
The Norwegians were last and also for the only time in 2000 in an European Championship finals of the game. After 20 years of abstinence, it will be high time for the Scandinavians to make their comeback on this stage. In the group F ranking it might look a bit better, but there is a sense of touch, at least in second place.
At the top of this group are the Spaniards with four wins from four games. There is no doubt that the Iberians will secure themselves one of the two EURO tickets in this group at the end. Behind them, Sweden, Romania and Norway are likely to argue for second place. All three teams are within two points.
Malta and the Faroe Islands will, as so often, have no chance and will not go beyond the audience role at the European Championships next year. Alone against this background, the moose on Thursday are big favorites. Therefore, in the match between Norway and Malta we dare to predict that the Scandinavians will continue to dream of winning the European Championship.
Moreover, the Maltese are not exactly a counterparty who spread fear and terror abroad. However, Malta won a friendly match in Ukraine two years ago. Every now and then a blind chicken also finds a grain. Nevertheless, in the encounter between Norway and Malta, we would not put a tip on a successful game of the guests.
Probably there is the almost obligatory bankruptcy for the islanders, who nevertheless still want to pull out of the affair properly. Who knows, maybe they can at least annoy the moose a bit.
Norway – Statistics & Current Form
The Norwegians have two hot irons in the fire in terms of European Championship qualification. In addition to the regular European Championship qualification, the Scandinavians could win a ticket for the finals also on the Nations League, because the team of Lars Lagerbäck has won in Division C, the group and will, if it does not work in the regular qualifiers, with Serbia Scotland and Finland are fighting for another Euro 2020 ticket.
Above all, the home strength gives the Norwegians courage, that it can work with the qualification, in whatever way. In the last twelve home games Norway lost no more defeat. In addition, only five of the last 22 international matches have been lost. Under Lars Lagerbäck the moose now seem to be on a very good way again.
Therefore, there is basically no alternative but to use the odds for a home win in the match between Norway and Malta. The really important games in qualifying should be the games against Sweden and Romania. However, the Norwegians should under no circumstances afford a slip-up against the teams from Malta and the Faroe Islands.
The last encounter was a small derby in the away game on the Faroe Islands. Overall, the Norwegians did on the Atlantic island very difficult. The bottom line was that the moose could win the day with a good day from Björn Johnsen. The attacker of Rosenborg Trondheim scored both goals in a 2-0 victory.
“No opponent in international football is easy. We will not win unless we take Malta seriously. ” – Lars Lagerback
This encounter has shown that even the small teams can not take anything lightly. Lars Lagerbäck knows this, too, which heightens his senses once more with his team, because in international football you have to take every game seriously today. Otherwise, the Norwegians will not win against Malta, among others.
Personnelly, things look very good on Thursday with the Scandinavians. However, Celtic Glasgow center-back Kristoffer Ajer is unlikely to play due to injury. Otherwise, all players are fit. This means that Iver Fossum and Mats Möller Daehli, both well-known in Germany, have no place in the squad.
Probable team of Norway:
↪ Hansen – Aleesami, Reginiussen, Nordtveit, Elabdellaoui – mountains, Selnaes, Henriksen, Ödegaard – Johnsen, Elyounoussi
↪ Trainer: Lagerbäck

Malta – Statistics & Current Form
For the team from Malta is a victory in an international match a very big deal, because with the islanders this is not particularly common. However, when we base the performance of club teams on international competition, we feel that Malta may have made up for it.
That does not mean that they will now be kidnapped three points in Norway, but it could mean that the Maltese can no longer be slaughtered and keep up with opponents from much higher shelves over long periods reasonably. For example, it was in Spain in March and in Sweden in June.
Overall, Malta has won in its history but only four European Championship qualifiers, most recently in March against the Faroe Islands. On the whole, things are going badly for Malta as they have not won in the past 20 appearances. In addition, they conceded in the last few games usually a goal in the first 15 minutes.
Perhaps it would be appropriate in the match between Norway and Malta to make a prediction on an early goal. The Maltese played the last international match at home in mid-June against Romania. As expected, the team of Ray Farrugia had no chance. Already at break, the match was at the score of 0: 3 decided. In the end it was 0: 4.
“We will do everything in our power to prepare for Norway and to deliver the best possible performance in the hope that our efforts will lead to a positive outcome.” – Ray Farrugia
Ray Farrugia is under no illusions. The coach knows that it will be very difficult for his team on Thursday. However, he announced that he would prepare his team as best as possible and work hard for a successful game. Whether the game is scored as a success in a narrow defeat, the coach left open.
So slowly, but surely we miss the record national player Michael Mifsud. He is a legend of Maltese football, but is not in the squad for the next two internationals. With Jonathan Caruana, Ryan Camilleri, Ryan Fenech and Clayton Failla missing more veterans, which points to a change in Malta.
Probable team of Malta:
↪ Bonello – Zerafa, Agius, Z. Muscat, Borg – Fenech, Mbong, Corbalan, R. Muscat – Effiong, Gambin
↪ Trainer: R. Farrugia
Last matches of Malta:
⚽️ 10.06.2019 – Malta vs. Romania 0: 4 (European Championship Qualification)
⚽️ 07.06.2019 – Sweden vs. Malta 3: 0 (European Championship Qualification)
⚽️ 26.03.2019 – Malta vs. Spain 0: 2 (European Championship Qualification)
⚽️ 23.03.2019 – Malta vs. Faroe Islands 2: 1 (European Championship Qualification)
⚽️ 20.11.2018 – Malta vs. Faroe Islands 1: 1 (Nations League)
Norway vs Malta Direct Comparison
A total of ten times the teams from Norway and Malta have faced each other so far. Totally alien, the two teams are therefore not. The direct comparison is a clear affair for the Scandinavians. Eight wins and two draws are Norway’s, that means: Malta is still waiting for a victory against the moose.
The last time the two opponents faced each other in qualifying for the European Championship 2016 in France. The first leg in Malta won the Norwegians 3-0. In the second leg in Oslo, it was enough to a 2: 0 through the gates of Alexander Tettey and Alexander Söderlund. In the end, both teams did not go to the finals.
Norway vs Malta Best Betting Tips of the Day
Norway has nothing to give away on the way to the final round of the EURO 2020. We can not imagine that the team of Lars Lagerbäck on Thursday will feather. The elks have not lost in the last twelve home games and conceded against the islanders from the Mediterranean at all no bankruptcy.
Malta, meanwhile, have not won in the last 20 away games. That does not sound like a bet on an away win in the match between Norway and Malta is advisable. The odds are unbelievable 91.00. The money for such a bet will probably save us. However, we take into our considerations the sensible performances of Valletta in the European Cup.
Key facts – Norway vs Malta tips
⭐️ The Norwegians have not lost at home in the last twelve internationals
⭐️ Malta has not won away in the last 20 internationals
⭐️ The Maltese have never won against Norway in ten international matches
There, the Maltese have usually met at least, even if it was not enough. That Norway scores a goal on Thursday in Oslo is undeniable. We therefore think that in the match between Norway and Malta we should use the odds on goals of both teams, which are at least in the range of 5.50.
