Slovakia News and Form – Can Slovakia earn crucial points against Croatia?

Slovakia have taken a W2 L1 record from their three qualification group games. Those victories for them happened against Hungary and Azerbaijan, while their defeat happened in Wales. They came into this qualification campaign after a poor Nations League where they went W1 L3, but their form since then reads W3 L1 in their four games since (competitive and friendly). So they have managed to find a bit more positive momentum.

It has been back to back home wins for Slovakia so they have that going for them. Their form in recent European Championship qualifying home games is pretty solid. It is a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six such matches and one of those wins was against Spain. In all four of the wins in that sequence, Slovakia scored at least two goals and they have three clean sheets in their last five home games. They are going to need to put in an organised defensive effort here, and at the end of the day, a draw out of this tough game wouldn’t be a bad result for them. It would keep them in the qualification picture.

Croatia News and Form – Can Croatia win in Slovakia?

Croatia, who were runners up at last year’s World Cup, really set such a high bar there, that it was always going to be a difficult act for them to follow. They didn’t have a great Nations League campaign against England and Spain. They are now having a big fight to go on and reach Euro 2020 right now. A win in this would give them a massive boost. Croatia have taken six points from their opening three games, leaving them level with Slovakia.

Since their Nations League campaign came to a close with a 2-1 defeat against England, Croatia have gone W2 L2 in four games. Within that, those two victories were posted at home against Azerbaijan and Wales in these Euro 2020 qualifiers. The one away game out of the four in that sequence saw them suffer a shock loss in Hungary. If you look deeper into the away form of Croatia in European Championship qualifiers away from home, they are W1 D2 L2 in their last five such away games, losing two of their last three.

Slovakia v Croatia Predictions

Draw: There may not be too much between these. Croatia don’t have away form behind them in European Championship qualifiers and Slovakia took that very good home win over Hungary in this campaign. The draw in the match outright, therefore, has the most appeal in this one.
