Slovakia Prediction – Can Slovakia maintain challenge?

It’s been a pretty successful Euro qualifying campaign so far for Slovakia as they prepare for their biggest challenge yet when Croatia come to town on Friday night with a precious three points at stake for both teams on Friday night.

Two wins and a defeat have been Slovakia’s return for their efforts to date with wins registered against Hungary 2-0 at home and a 5-1 thrashing of Azerbaijan away from home last time out in Group E, but in-between times, the hosts suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Wales.

Nevertheless, Slovakia have given themselves more than just a fighting chance of claiming a top two finish in the group with these two aforementioned wins, and with just 3 defeats out of their last 12 home matches in Euro qualifiers, Slovakia look a decent bet to remain in the battle for qualification for the European Championships.

In addition, Slovakia have scored in 8 of these 12 home matches and with the likes of influential midfielders Hamsik (2 goals) and Duda (2 assists) pulling the strings, further goals could follow here for the hosts.

Croatia Prediction – Can Croatia overtake Slovakia?

Friday night’s visitors, Croatia, will be looking to claim their first away win of the Group E campaign when they travel to Trnava to take on 2nd placed Slovakia who are level on 6 points with the Croatians prior to tonight’s clash.

The visitors have also collected two wins and a defeat so far in their Euro 2020 campaign which has seen Croatia record wins over Azerbaijan 2-1 and Wales 2-1 both of which were registered on home turf at their Stadion Maksimir, but their one loss came in the shape of a slightly surprising 2-1 loss away to the current Group E leaders, Hungary.

With just 2 defeats out of their last 16 Euro qualifiers overall, Croatia boast a pretty consistent record at this level, but having secured just 1 victory out of their last 5 matches on their travels, which was a narrow and unconvincing 1-0 win at minnows, Malta, the visitors aren’t guaranteed the points here.

However, we can’t discount the influence of Croatia’s midfielders, Modric and Perisic and the fact that the visitors have scored in 5 of their last 7 away matches.

 

Key-Facts – Slovakia v Croatia

  • Slovakia have scored in 8 of their last 12 home matches in Euro qualifiers
  • Croatia have scored in 5 of their last 7 away matches in Euro qualifiers
  • 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have seen both teams score

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Both Slovakia and Croatia are in reasonable form and both represent decent goal threats, so we could see both team’s nets bulge here tonight.
