Malta vs Norway Prediction
Malta vs Norway Match Preview
Norway’s chances of automatic qualification for Euro 2020 were ended by their neighbours Sweden’s win in Romania on Friday, but they should still end their campaign on a high note.
Even though the Norwegians ran out 4-0 victors at home to the Faroe Islands, second position in Group F behind table-toppers Spain was put beyond their reach when Sweden pulled off a 2-0 triumph in Bucharest that secured their own place at next summer’s tournament.
But all is certainly not lost for Norway. They are guaranteed to be in the play-offs by virtue of their achievements in the inaugural UEFA Nations League and their semi-final in the third tier of the structure may well be against Serbia, with Scotland looking set to face Bulgaria before the two winners meet in a March 31 showdown.
The main positive in this campaign for Lars Lagerback’s side is that they have been difficult to beat, losing only once and that was narrowly away to Spain, although they had drawn too frequently before their latest success against the Faroes in which Alexander Sorloth, on loan at Trabzonspor from Crystal Palace, scored a double.
Malta, meanwhile, have unsurprisingly been outclassed and they go into this game having been drubbed 7-0 away to Spain on Friday.
In fairness, that was the first really heavy defeat Malta have suffered and this may be more of a perfunctory win for Norway than a particularly emphatic one.
