Why Scotland will win
Malta have been struggling in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and in each of their previous three meetings Scotland defeated Malta and the history is likely to repeat itself (Scotland have won all 5 out of 5 competitive matches against Malta) and with home ground advantage the Scottish will trample on Malta.
Why Malta will win
The first match was locked at 1-1 after 45 minutes but Malta only lost in the second half when two of their players were dismissed and with 11 against 11 in this clash the visitors can surprise the hosts in this match owing to the hosts tension and pressure from home fans.
Scotland vs Malta Prediction
Malta has scored just one goal in their previous 9 competitive away games and will surely struggle to break down a Scottish team who have had their best results at home. Scotland’s superior fitness and technique will help them to take control in the latter stages of this match which will most likely produce over 2.5 goals.
Our Prediction: A home win for Scotland and over 2.5 goals scored
