Malta will be aiming to launch their 2018 commitments on a high note when they meet Luxembourg in a friendly match at the National Stadium on 22nd March (kick-off 18.00).


The friendly against Luxembourg heralds the start of Malta’s build-up for the inaugural UEFA Nations League which gets underway in September. Malta has been drawn in Group 3 of League D along with Azerbaijan, Faroe Islands and Kosovo.

 

Tom Saintfiet, the Malta coach, and his assistant Ray Farrugia have been closely monitoring the performances of the Maltese players across all divisions over the past few months ahead of the squad selection next week.

 

An encouraging performance against Luxembourg would also help to raise the morale of the Maltese team ahead of their second friendly match against Finland, in Turkey, four days later.

 

The ticket price for the Malta-Luxembourg friendly on 22nd March is only €5 for both West Side sectors.

 

This attractive admission fee is aimed at encouraging our fans to come and support the national team in their first official outing for 2018.

Malta attained a 2-0 win over Luxembourg in their last meeting – a friendly match at the Josey Barthel Stadium on 2nd June, 2012.

 

Before that, Luxembourg had beaten Malta home and away in the 1996 Euro Championship qualifiers while the other two meetings, both friendly matches, finished 1-1.

 

Luxembourg gained six points in Group A of the European qualifiers for this year's World Cup in Russia.
