Our prediction for this match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Azerbaijan, Malta will look to put icing on the cake on March friendlies when they face Kuwait on Tuesday. The Maltese regained a much-needed confidence on Friday, and they are surely capable of matching the Asian side in Ta’Qali. Veteran defender Andrei Agius, who limped off with injury against Kuwait, is unlikely to feature in the midweek friendly, while Luke Montebello is pushing for a start.
Nabil Maaloul’s troops, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Latvia. Kuwait are eyeing their second win of 2022, but beating Malta at Ta’Qali National Stadium is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (André Schembri):
Andre Schembri is a Malta international who was born in Floriana on May 27, 1986. Schembri started his youth career at his hometown club Floriana, but he played for fellow Maltese side Hibernians at the start of his senior career. The experienced attacker scored ten goals in 44 appearances for the club before joining Marsaxlokk in 2005. After spending four seasons at the club he moved to Austria Karnten in 2009 and it has to be noted that he played on loan for the likes of Eintracht Braunschweig and Calr Zeiss Jena during his spell with Marsaxlokk.
Andre Schembri did not spend too much time in Austria as he moved to Hungary in the winter of 2010, signing a deal with Ferencvaros. The Maltese striker played for the likes of Panionios, Omonia, FSV Frankfurt, Omonia and Boavista before joining Apollon Limassol in June 2017. Andre Schembri signed a two-year deal with the Cypriot side and he quickly started paying off.
You should bear in mind that the Malta international scored four goals in the 2017/2018 Europa League qualifiers and, no doubt, he helped the Cypriot side book their place in the group stages of the European competition.
