Estonia vs Malta- Friday afternoon’s match between Estonia and Malta at the A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn will decide the Group 2 champion of the UEFA Nations League D. The 1-2 victory by the Estonians in the reverse match in Valletta in June of this year gives them a significant lead.
Henri Anier of Estonia, who entered the game as a substitute, scored the game’s winning goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time. Estonia currently sits atop Group 2 with a perfect record of two victories in two games, and they just need a point from this game to guarantee first place and progress to League C. Malta has accomplished the task thus far in the competition with two clean-sheet victories over San Marino, so we shouldn’t undervalue them.
This summer, Maltese teams Gzira United, Hamrun Spartans, and Hibernians performed admirably in the qualifiers for the premier Europan championships. In the UEFA Europa Conference League, all three teams made it to the third qualifying round, with Hamrun Spartans moving on to the playoffs after defeating opponents including Alashkertt, Velez Mostar, and Levski Sofia.
