England To Move A Step Closer To The World Cup With A Comfortable Win In Malta

England continue their 2018 World Cup qualification campaign with a trip to the Ta'Qali National Stadium for their latest Group F match against lowly Malta and Gareth Southgate's men are expected to secure a comfortable win on Friday night...

  • England haven't scored more than three goals in a match since September 2015
  • Malta failed to score in four of their six World Cup qualifiers

The Story So Far

The Three Lions are currently top of Group F with fourteen points from six games following their 2-2 draw with Scotland last time out and it is no surprise to see that they are 1/20 to beat Malta, who are bottom of the table having lost all six of their qualifiers thus far.

The Maltese have failed to score in four of their six matches in qualifying and it doesn't bode well for their manager, Pietro Ghedin, that they have managed a grand total of two goals in that time.
Match Odds:

A Slow Burner

Malta may not have won a home game in any form since June 2015 but they did only lose 2-0 when they played England at Wembley last October and a repeat of that 2-0 scoreline on Friday can be backed at 5/1 with Unibet.

Malta haven't lost any of their past seven matches by more than two goals and it is worth noting that England haven't scored more than three goals in a match since September 2015, when they thumped San Marino 6-0 - a run of 23 games.

Under 3.5 goals is available at 10/11 with Betfred this week and it may be a match that takes a while to get going as Malta will bid to frustrate an England side that will be without Wayne Rooney following his international retirement.

With that in mind, the second half to be highest scoring can be backed at 10/11 (Betfred.com) and we fully expect England to take advantage of a tiring Malta team ahead of a stiffer test against Slovakia at Wembley on Monday night.
