Lebanon has won the two previous encounters between the countries, with their 34-16 win in 2015 the most recent.

The Cedars are using this match as a warm-up for their World Cup campaign where they will face Australia, England and France in their pool games.

Malta will be looking to build on their 44-26 win over the Philippines in February this year, and gather momentum for the Emerging Nations World Championship next year.
