World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

It is round two between these two in World Cup 2018 qualification and the two of them are at opposite ends of the group. Malta are already eliminated from any chance of qualification for Russia 2018 while the Three Lions, despite a couple of frustrating games out on the road, remain in control. They have their fate in their own hands and they should be able to collect another three points which sees them edge their way a little bit closer to Russia 2017. England won the first meeting in the group with Malta 2-0.

Malta vs England Betting Tips

This isn’t likely to produce a lot of highlights is this game. England have a tougher game coming up on Monday back at home against Slovakia. So this trip to Malta can be used as something of a warm up for that really. Malta have lost all six of their qualification matches so far and have hit the back of the net just twice while conceding fifteen. On home soil in the group, Malta have lost 3-1 against Slovakia, 1-0 against Slovenia and 5-1 against Scotland. This should be just about as routine as it gets for England who doesn’t need to bust a gut in this one. The last time that Malta won a competitive match was in June 2013. England took a 2-0 home win over Malta back in October last year thanks to strikes from Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy. Harry Kane is the William Hill first goalscorer outright favourite at a price of 12/5 with Daniel Sturridge at 10/3 and Jamie Vardy at 7/2.

England to win to nil at William Hill again over Malta returns a price of just 3/10 just to highlight how easy this should be for the visitors. This is only the third meeting between the two nations and England have won both, a 2-1 away in a 2000 friendly, then there was that 2-0 home win over them in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers last year. England can just coast here and in the William Hill correct score market an England 2-0 option is at 9/2 with only a 3-0 win for them at 4/1. Malta aren’t defensively horrendous for one of the minnows in qualification, as they have not lost any of their last seven games by a margin of more than two goals. So look for a low scoring game in Ta’ Qali, where England just do what they need to do to win the game and get themselves together ahead of the Slovakia game.
