    On Friday evening, Estonia and Malta meet in Group D2 of the Nations League, with the two teams neck and neck in the group table.


    The home team has an inconsistent recent international record. However, they have won just two of their previous nine international matches.

    However, when it comes to the Nations League, Estonia has won both of their matches in Group D2, beating San Marino and last time out beating Friday evening’s opponents in the reverse fixture.

    The victory over San Marino ended an eight-game winless streak for Estonia in the Nations League. In fact, they have won just three of their 16 Nations League matches.

    Estonia have found home wins hard to come by in the Nations League, winning just one of their eight home matches in the relatively new competition.

    However, the victory over San Marino last time out ended a seven-game winless streak on home soil while also making them four games unbeaten on home soil in the Nations League.


    Like their hosts, Malta’s recent international form has been inconsistent, as they have won three and lost three of their last six matches. The visitors have picked up six points in Group D2, the same as Estonia, but have played a game more.

    Malta have been relatively difficult to beat in the Nations League, losing just one of their last eight matches in the competition, which was the defeat against Estonia.

    The visitors are unbeaten in their last three away matches in the Nations League, having recorded two straight victories in the competition. That decent away run has been built on solid defensive foundations, as they have kept three straight clean sheets on their travels in the Nations League.
