Malta will play at home with Italy in the 2nd round of qualification for the European Championship. The match will take place on March 26, starting at 18:45 GMT.
The Malta national team is one of the outsiders of qualification for Euro 2024. The team has a weak composition and no chance of success.
Now the Maltese do not shine anything positive. All opponents in the group are clearly stronger than them. Over the last five matches in all competitions, the team has only 1 win.
The starting round of qualification selection was unsuccessful for the team. On the road, Malta was defeated by North Macedonia (1-2).
The Italian national team, meanwhile, did not successfully start the selection for the Euro Championship, which will be held in 2024 in Germany.
The team in the first round at home lost to the England team with a score (1-2). Prior to that, the national team lost in a friendly game against Austria with a score (0-2).
In the Nations League, the Italian team took first place in the group stage, and will now play in the playoffs. The team managed to get ahead of Hungary by one point.

Italy does not have the strongest squad in terms of names. However, even it should be enough for a confident victory over Malta.
We believe that in this match the guests will win with a difference of two goals, and both teams will not score. The Italian team will obviously be actively attacking, and we urgently need to score the first points and rush in pursuit of England.
Prediction for this match: Handicap Italy (-2.5).
- Both teams no to score
