Looking at Malta vs Azerbaijan Prediction, Malta play host to Azerbaijan at Ta'Qali National Stadium.
Malta itself will try to rise in this match, having suffered a bad start in their League of Nations campaign after they suffered a defeat against Faroe Islands.
In the match held at Torshavn Stadium, the Faroe Islands won 3-1, where their goals were scored by John Edmundsson, Rene Joensen and Hallur Hansson. While Malta's only goal was scored by M. Misfsud.
These results make Malta's poor record unbroken, where they cannot win a single match in the last five appearances. In these five matches, Malta only managed to claim 1 draw, while the other four matches ended in defeat.
On the other hand, Azerbaijan has just disappointed their fans, after only a 0-0 draw against Kosovo in their League of Nations campaign at home on Friday (8/9).
In the match that was held at the Olimpia Stadium Tray, Azerbaijan failed to tear the Kosovo goal net, although it managed to create a number of golden opportunities. This result alone is certainly a very unfortunate thing. Because the squad made by Gurban Gurbanov had previously managed to destroy Latvia with a score of 3-1 in front of his own supporters.
It is interesting to note that head to head statistics speak for Malta's superiority. In six meetings with Azerbaijan, the team nicknamed the Reds claimed three wins 1 draw and two defeats.
And when playing at the Ta'Qali National Stadium, Malta was dominant in claiming 3 wins and only lost one in four meetings. However, in the history of the most recent meeting Azerbaijan won two and drew one of the last three meetings with Malta.
Azerbaijan will certainly be favored to win this match, because statistically at this time, the depth of Gurban Gurbanov's squad was better than Pietro Ghedin's Malta squad. And unlike when they clashed with Kosovo, Azerbaijan will again be strengthened by their two main players, Roy Chipolina and Lee Casciaro when they clash with Malta.
