MALTA VS RUSSIA
Despite knowing deep down that their chances of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup are extremely remote, Malta hope to better their last World Cup Qualification (WCQ) campaign, which saw them gain only one point (DI, L9).
Hunting a third consecutive progression to the FIFA World Cup finals for the first time in the post-Soviet era (1992-present), Russia are unanimously considered by bookmakers as likelier to beat the -3 handicap than fail to win, and indeed, each of their last five competitive wins have seen them net 3+ goals.
PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 GOALS & RUSSIA TO WIN. CS 0-3
GIBRALTAR VS NORWAY
Gibraltar made history in 2020, going unbeaten in a national record four consecutive competitive matches (W2, D2), albeit they never played a team ranked in FIFA's top 180.
There's probably no better team for Norway to start a WCQ campaign against than Gibraltar, as they seek a first World Cup appearance since 1998. Just two losses within 90 minutes across their last 16 games (W7, D7, L2) shows they travel here in good form
