malta vs romania Tip Reason:

Romania’s hopes of making the Euros next year rest on their results in qualifying, following their second place finish in their Nations League group. That means that Romania need to kick on in this group, but they have to dislodge World Cup quarter-finalists Sweden in order to jump into the top two. With Sweden off to Spain in Monday’s round of qualifiers, there’s a chance for the Romanians to close the gap, as long as they can claim a victory in this trip to Malta. Malta have won just one of their opening three qualifiers, as they claimed a victory over the Faroe Islands. However, that came back in March, with defeats to Spain and Sweden following that. Having lost to the two best sides in the group, Malta will be aiming to return to form when they host Romania. However, the hosts are massive outsiders ahead of this clash, as they look to turn around awful home form. Having won one of their last 17 matches at home, Malta could struggle again here. Romania have kicked things off with a troubling loss at Sweden, a win over the Faroe Islands and a draw with Norway. That hasn’t boosted Romania’s chances of making the top two, so they need to claim a win in this visit to Malta. However, in order to do that the visitors need to keep their first clean sheet of the campaign. They’ve been far too open in their clashes so far, even conceding in their home win against the Faroes. Could that see Malta find the net in Monday’s meeting? The visitors have shipped five goals in three games in this campaign, but they’ve managed to save themselves with seven goals in return. They’ll need to be in scoring form again here, judging by their defensive record on the road. Romania have seen both teams score in six of their last seven games, having kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 trips. Malta have conceded in their last 12 home games, shipping 30 goals in that time. While the hosts should fancy their chances of scoring in this one, we are backing Romania to fire in a couple of their own. We see another high scoring clash for the visitors in this clash, so we’re backing over 2.5 goals in Romania’s visit to Malta.
