Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Faroe Islands and Malta take on each other at Torsvollur at the start of their UEFA Nations League campaign. Faroe Islands were not at their sharpest in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, with the team collecting only three points from possible 30. Malta recorded one win in the process as well, and it has to be noted that they are on a nine-game losing run ahead of the trip to Torshavn.
When the two teams met at Torsvollur in the Euro 2020 qualifiers Faroe Islands recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Malta, with Rogvi Baldvinsson scoring the only goal of the match. Considering that the visitors head into Thursday’s football match with the lack of confidence, we are tempted to put our money on Hakan Ericsson’s troops. A man to watch in the home team will be Joannes Bjartalid, who has netted 12 goals in the national championship to date.
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.
