Estonia vs Malta: Our top betting tips

Estonia will edge the game

We kick off our predictions for this match by backing Estonia to run out as winners. Admittedly, there isn't much to choose between the two sides when considering their form with Estonia having won two and drawn one of their last five compared to a Malta side that have won three but lost two across the same time period. That form guide obviously looks a tad kinder on Malta but there are a couple of key things to consider; first you've got the strength of opposition faced where Estonia have faced tougher games – notably against Argentina and Albania – and, most importantly, the hosts dominate the head to head matches with wins in each of the last two meetings and no loss to Malta since the early nineties.

Going under 2.5 goals

Our next prediction for Estonia vs Malta is that it will be a low scoring game; we're backing under 2.5 total goals. Three of Estonia's last five matches have gone under that aforementioned 2.5 threshold whilst four of Malta's last five have also gone south of that marker. With two of the last three meetings between the nations in Estonia also seeing fewer than three goals there are plenty of reasons to expect a drab contest.

Can Estonia confirm their promotion?

Owing to the games played situation in this group, Estonia will confirm their promotion providing they don't lose this match. That's a hefty motivational factor for them. As for Malta, they'll know the only way their promotion dream stays alive is through victory. It should make for an interesting encounter – even if quality might be lacking at times.

Estonia were relegated in the Nations League last time but they're now on the brink of bouncing straight back. With no major injury concerns around the squad either, they'll be confident of getting the job done as they entertain Malta.

Estonia Predicted lineup – Igonen, Lukka, Pakotsi, Kuusk, Miller, Poom, Soomets, Peetson, Puri, Sorga, Zenjov

Malta aren't out of the running for group promotion just yet and whilst they have it all to do they won't arrive in Tallinn fearing the rath of the Estonia side. In fact, Teddy Teuma they have a man who is bang in form and could be a difference maker.

Malta Predicted lineup – Bonello, S.Borg, Pepe, J.Borg, Overend, Vella, Mbong, Teuma, Paiber, Satariano, Degabriele
