In a previous couple of months, Malta played in UEFA Nations League D, where they finished 2nd on the table, so they will stay in the weakest European level. Still, Malta lost only three of the last nine matches, so they are not that weak anymore. In the previous game, Malta played 2-2 at home against Greece. The home side was surprisingly close to a win in that match, but eventually, the game finished with a draw. 

Malta have problems in defense. They allowed five goals in the last three matches. Also, all three games went over 2.5 goals. 

Ireland played in League B, where they didn't have much success but avoided relegation to the lower level. Ireland only played one game in November, losing 2-1 at home to Norway. That match was fairly even, but the visitors did just enough to secure a win. 

Ireland also have a bad defense. They allowed six goals in the last three matches. All three games were with at least three goals. 

 Over 2.5 goals should be the best bet for this tie.

Italian coach Devis Mangia led the Maltese national team last couple of years. Still, after a few bad results in 2022, the Maltese football association decided to sack him. Against Greece, Gilbert Agius served as interim head coach. Malta played well in Agius' debut, so they might get him a permanent deal.
