A Battle for Euro 2024 Qualification Dreams

Key Stats
– Italy have lost just once in their last 44 European Championship qualifying matches.
– Malta have never defeated Italy in their 18 prior encounters.
– Davide Frattesi boasts the highest BettingTips4You Expert Rating for Italy in the European Championship qualifiers at 8.40.

As Italy prepares to host Malta at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari, the stakes couldn’t be higher. The Azzurri are on a mission, hoping to close the gap with Group C leaders England to just three points. A victory would certainly heat things up for their upcoming showdown at Wembley. Luciano Spalletti, the Scudetto-winning coach, has made notable progress with his Italian side. Since their initial hiccup against England, Italy have gathered seven points from their subsequent three games. However, September was a mixed bag, showing signs of vulnerability but also resilience.

Contrastingly, Malta’s hopes are dashed. Ranking 171st globally, they sit at the bottom of Group C, having not earned a point or shown any consistent offensive prowess. Their historical record against Italy further paints a bleak picture. The Maltese have never bested the Italians in their 18 encounters, and their last goal against them came 30 years ago, a mere consolation in a lopsided defeat.

A Close Inspection of Recent Forms

Italy’s Performance: Italy’s recent journey in the European Championship qualifiers highlights their mettle. Their single defeat in their last 44 European Championship qualifying games demonstrates their dominance at this stage. Such statistics offer a glimmer of hope to a side eager to make their mark once again on the international stage.

Malta’s Performance: On the other side, Malta’s narrative is one of struggle. Five consecutive losses in the Euro qualifiers and a historical inability to trouble Italy makes their task look herculean.

Player Analysis and Team Set-Up

Italy: Given the difference in the quality of the opponents, Spalletti might be contemplating changes. Injuries have disrupted their attacking plans. Notably, the likes of Gianluca Scamacca and Federico Chiesa are yet to regain full fitness. Moreover, the absences of Mattia Zaccagni, Ciro Immobile, and Ivan Provedel further narrow Spalletti’s offensive options.

However, the trio of Moise Kean, Giacomo Raspadori, and Domenico Berardi has been in focus during training sessions. Furthermore, Davide Frattesi’s recent performance against Ukraine might earn him a pivotal role in the midfield.

Malta: Malta’s challenges echo Italy’s, albeit at a different scale. Teddy Teuma and Jodi Jones are notable absentees due to injuries. Additionally, the experienced Steve Borg’s suspension hands either Jean Borg or Kurt Shaw an opportunity.

Key Players and BettingTips4You Expert Ratings:

Italy: Davide Frattesi (8.40), Emerson Palmieri (7.70), and Alessio Romagnoli (7.60) are among Italy’s standout performers in the European Championship qualifiers.

Malta: Matthew Grech (7.50) has been Malta’s shining star, followed by Enrico Pepe (7.00) and Yannick Yankam (6.82).


  1. Match Outcome Prediction: With Italy’s superior form, BettingTips4You Expert Rating, and Malta’s historic struggles against the Azzurri, a comfortable victory for Italy seems plausible.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: Combining Italy’s attacking prowess and Malta’s defensive vulnerabilities, a 3-0 victory for Italy seems a likely outcome.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: Given his form and recent brace against Ukraine, Davide Frattesi is our pick to score at least once during the match.
  4. Corner Prediction: With Italy’s average of 6 corners per game and Malta’s 2.4, Italy is expected to win more corners. Predicting a total, the match might see around 9-10 corners.
