Head To Head Record
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. The experienced attacker scored ten goals in 44 appearances for the club before joining Marsaxlokk in 2005. 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. Andre Schembri is a Malta international who was born in Floriana on May 27, 1986.
Anyhow, Maltas away record in the qualifiers for major tournaments is anything but good and they are unlikely to spoil Swedens party in Solna. Sweden are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to roll over the minnows in Fridays clash. Malta did remarkably well to beat Faroe Islands in the opening match of their qualifying campaign, but Spain proved to be a big catch for Raymond Farrugias troops in their second group game.
Sweden vs Malta Odds
Luis Enrique has a dilemma in front of him here. Thats a major question to be answered, but dont expect him to change too much right away. Some of the bigger names missing out on the team this go-around include striker Diego Costa, midfielders Isco, Thiago, and Koke, and defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and Dani Carvajal. Does he choose to play the same team for what should be a home run or should be rotate and allow some others to get experience?
Sweden host Malta for their Matchday 3 clash on Friday evening looking to build on the solid start and four points earned in their first two outings, where they beat Romania (2-1) in front of the home fans and snatched a point in a six-goal thriller in Norway (3-3) in a tremendous showdown late in the match.
They very rarely even concede to their visitors, and this is going to be more of the same. They are the much stronger side of the two, having crushed Malta time and time again. Expert Verdict: This match should only be going on way, and that is very clearly toward the hosting Swedes. With that being said, Malta have looked a lot better so far in the group, keeping the goals allowed to a minimum, so it might not be the cakewalk it used to be.
In their last meeting in a competitive match Spain crushed Malta 4-0. Spain will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Norway when they take on Malta at TaQali National Stadium. La Roja created a number of clear-cut chances to score in the opening match of their EURO 2020 qualifying campaign and they are eager to build on the performance. The minnows did well to beat Faroe Islands on Saturday evening, but Spain are likely to pose a much bigger threat for them than their previous rivals. Valencia attacker Rodrigo produced a fine display in the triumph over the Norwegians and we are positive that he is going to make life difficult for Malta defenders as well. The Spaniards aim to climb to top position in Group F and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Malta.

The Knights of Malta have yet to participate at the finals of the showpiece tournaments, but they often claim major scalps in the qualifying matches. Malta recorded their biggest win (7-1) against Liechtenstein on March 26, 2008, but a win over Hungary in the Euro 2008 qualifiers is considered their biggest achievement. Back in 1957 Malta played their first international match. The Malta Football Association joined FIFA in 1959, while joining UEFA the following year and they have been competing in the qualifiers for the major tournaments since 1962. The Falcons faced Austria in their debut on the international stage and they suffered a 3-2 loss to Das Team in front of home fans in Gzira. Speaking of friendly games, it has to be noted that Malta did remarkably well to beat star-studded Ukraine in Graz on June 6, 2017, with Zach Muscat scoring the winner for the minnows. In December 1983 the Maltese suffered their heaviest loss as they were crushed bySpain 12-1 in Seville.

Sweden vs Malta Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
There is a real lack of goals from Malta, but if they are to score, then its going to just about have to come from Alfred Effiong. In midfield, Paul Fenech is the man to keep an eye on. Hes grabbed four goals in 30 appearances, and while it doesnt sound like much, its quite a lot for such a small nation. Hes had more caps than any other midfielder, with 53, in the team, and that experience is vital to helping them keep it as tight as they can.
They have regularly managed scorelines of 4-0, 5-0, 6-0, etc against Malta. Sweden won the last eleven h2h games in a row, and on top of that, they kept nine clean sheets along with it.
