Wales are in a position where they need to really get three points on the board in this away game.

Slovakia News and Form – Will Slovakia beat Wales?

Slovakia will be left in a great qualification position to reach Euro 2020 if they come up with a home win. They are second in the group at the moment, with only Croatia ahead of them by one point. Slovakia were beaten in Cardiff when they faced Wales earlier in the campaign. That was a 1-0 loss so they need to win bigger than that to hold the head to head tie-breaker advantage over the Welsh (should it unrealistically come down to that).

Wales 1-0 Correct Score


Slovakia’s record in the group so far is W3 D0 L2 in the group, the other loss happening against Croatia. They have only picked up one win in their last four European Championship home qualifiers though (D1 L2). Also, they have failed to score in three of those four games as well. But if you look at their current home form in all formats of games, then Slovakia are W3 L1 in their last four. Slovakia have scored at least two goals in each of their last four successes at home.

Wales News and Form

The Welsh have a game in hand over the other nations in the group. But if they end up losing this game then that is not going to do them much good. It is a W2 L2 record that the Welsh have taken so far, the wins happening against Slovakia and then a narrow home win over Azerbaijan in which Gareth Bale scored a winner for the Dragons six minutes from time to spare their blushes. Wales have lost their two away games in Croatia and Hungary.

Their overall road form is not good. They have lost five of their last eight international away games (W2 D1). It is a three-match losing streak that they are currently on away from home too, with the Welsh scoring in only three of their last eight away games. Two of their last three away defeats have been disappointing 1-0 reverses at Albania and Hungary, so they are not their with their road form currently.

Slovakia v Wales Predictions

Slovakia to win: This is a tough away game for Wales, who, because of poor road form and lack of goals, look the likelier of the two to come away with the victory. Slovakia should be good enough on home soil to collect the win and leave the Welsh with some major qualification problems. Home win.
