Another difficult test for Malta Under-21

After losing 0-6 to Spain on Saturday, the Malta Under-21 national team plays the second match from Group B of the UEFA Under-21 Championship, hosting Hungary at the Tony Bezzina Stadium, kick-off at 17:45.

The locals will be hoping to bounce back with a good performance and possibly a good result after the game against Spain.

Hungary claimed the three points in their first outing as they defeated Kazakhstan 2-0 on Friday. On Monday, another two matches were played as Spain defeated Scotland 1-0 while Belgium beat Kazakhstan with an identical score.
