Quick Facts

  • Czech Republic are after their fifth consecutive win over Malta
  • Malta scored in three of their last meetings with Czech Republic

Czech Republic vs Malta Prediction

Czech Republic are regarded as hot favourites to beat Malta in Friday’s friendly, but the underdogs should not be written off just yet. Anyhow, the Czechs aim to prepare in the best possible way for the upcoming European Championship finals and, no doubt, Pavel Vrba’s men will take the match very seriously. In previous two meetings with Malta Czech Republic scored seven goals and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the cards.
