The Luxembourg team will challenge the Malta team in a Friendly Match in de Luxembourg Stadium, Lëtzebuerg on Friday, June 09, 2023. For streaming coverage of Luxembourg vs Malta, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Luxembourg has just played two matches in 2023, namely drawing with Slovakia and losing 0-6 to Portugal in two Euro qualifiers. Previously, this team had appeared quite successful in the Nations League but unfortunately they failed to win a promotion ticket.
They managed to collect 11 points from 6 matches in group A League C, only 2 points away from group leaders Turkey, where they lost 0-2 to Turkey at home but in the second leg they surprised with a 3-3 draw at home to the opponent .
To prepare for the Euro qualifiers which will take place this June, Luxembourg invited Malta for a friendly with the aim of honing their skills and finding the best formation. At first glance, with the advantage of playing at home, Luxembourg is the team that football fans favor to win.
However, Malta is also the same as its opponent in this match, having only two matches in 2023, namely two narrow defeats to North Macedonia and Italy in the two Euro qualifiers, this is not a bad result considering that the two opponents are very superior to them.
In general, Malta has very limited abilities, the proof is that in the 2022 Nations League they only played in League D but only got 6 points from 2 wins and 2 losses, that is, they were only able to beat the weak team San Marino and lost to Estonia.
From the performances of these two teams in the 2022 Nations League, it can be seen that there is a sizeable difference in quality between them. Luxembourg managed to get 11 points from 6 matches in League C, they could even draw with Turkey at home to their opponents. Meanwhile, Malta failed to promote despite playing in League D, they could only win against a very weak San Marino. Therefore, the top option is preferable.
Luxembourg is in poor scoring form as they couldn’t score in their last three matches, besides that two of those three games were clean sheets, namely against Bulgaria and Slovakia. Malta’s defense also did not perform badly in the two Euro qualifiers last March, they only conceded four goals from two very strong opponents namely North Macedonia and the Italian national team. In addition, the last two meetings between Luxembourg and Malta also had no more than two goals in one game. So, downvoting is reasonable.
The last meeting between these two teams was in the friendly match in 2018, the result was Luxembourg won 1-0 at home. Judging from the FIFA rankings, Luxembourg also has a much higher ranking than their opponents, namely they are in 91st position while Malta is in 172nd position. Luxembourg also has not bad home performance as they have only lost one of the last five matches. Therefore, it is very difficult for Malta to get a positive result against this opponent.
Luxembourg has shown significant progress in recent years, this was clearly seen in the 2022 Nations League when this team almost won a promotion ticket to League B by only being under Turkey, they could even draw with their opponent. In addition, the draw at home to Slovakia in the Euro qualifier last March also showed Luxembourg’s ability. Therefore, the home team’s chances of winning are very high.
