Ukraine’s Decisive Battle with Malta: A Prelude to Italy

Key Stats
– Malta’s losing streak in the Euros qualifying now extends to a staggering 15 matches since their last win in March 2019.
– Ukraine’s young sensation, Georgiy Sudakov, has caught the attention of European giants and recently scored a notable goal against North Macedonia.
– Ukraine are currently positioned third in their group, trailing Italy based on head-to-head results, having played one match more.

As the Euro 2024 qualifiers progress, Ukraine are gearing up for what could be a decisive tie against Malta, keeping in mind their subsequent clash with Italy. Riding on the momentum from their 2-0 victory against North Macedonia, Ukraine remain hopeful despite sitting behind Italy due to head-to-head results. Their adversaries for the night, Malta, are yearning for some respite after a series of dampening defeats that have left them rock-bottom in Group C.

Teams’ Recent Form

Despite being faced with various challenges such as injuries and off-field controversies, Italy demonstrated their superiority with a 4-0 drubbing of Malta. Notably, Giacomo Bonaventura, Domenico Berardi, and Davide Frattesi stole the show for the reigning Euro champions. Malta’s recent form leaves much to be desired, with six successive defeats in the Euro qualifiers.

The Maltese side has struggled in front of goal, failing to score in their last five Group C matches. Contrastingly, Ukraine’s journey in the qualifiers has been mixed, but they’ve managed to carve out important results. Their encounter against North Macedonia was particularly memorable, with players like Georgiy Sudakov and Oleksandr Karavaev proving their mettle.

The Contenders

Malta’s preparations have received a boost with captain Steve Borg returning from suspension. He is likely to replace Ferdinando Apap in defence. Zach Muscat, who has been representing Portuguese side Farense, is expected to partner Borg in central defence. However, the hosts will be without the services of attacking threats Teddy Teuma and Jodi Jones due to injuries.

Ukraine, on the other hand, will be without Ruslan Malinovskyi due to suspension. Notably, Malinovskyi wasn’t part of the starting XI in their last game. Even in the absence of match-winners like Tsygankov and Yarmolenko, Ukraine’s attacking arsenal remains formidable with the likes of Mykhaylo Mudryk, Sudakov, and Oleksandr Zubkov lining up to support Artem Dovbyk.

Predictions Based on Analysis

  1. Match Outcome Prediction: Given the contrasting form of both teams, Ukraine appears to have the upper hand. The historical data also favours Ukraine, considering Malta’s losing streak in the Euro qualifiers. Thus, predicting a win for Ukraine appears justified.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: Malta have found goals hard to come by, scoring just once in their last six Euro qualifiers, while Ukraine has displayed resilience and flair. An estimated scoreline could be 3-0 in favour of Ukraine.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: With Georgiy Sudakov in blistering form, especially after his recent performances, he seems to be a likely candidate to find the back of the net in the upcoming match.
  4. Corner Prediction: Ukraine to have more corners, with a total of 10 corners in the match
    Given Ukraine’s attacking prowess and Malta’s defensive stance, the corner count is likely to be higher for Ukraine.
