Slovakia vs Paraguay Prediction
The hosts are currently in contention for a ticket to the finals of the Euro and are just a point away from table-toppers Croatia at the moment. Their last clash on the road saw them take down Hungary by a 2-1 scoreline. While at home, they were thrashed by Croatia who scored four unanswered goals into the back of the net.
However, the home team have admitted defeat only twice in their last ten games here in all competitions. On the other hand, Paraguay have featured on the pitch on just two occasions since their Copa America exit.
Their last clash on the road against Jordan saw them overturn a two-goal deficit in the second half to ultimately post a 4-2 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes. Prior to that matchup though, the visitors failed to make much of an impact against foes Japan and subsequently succumbed to a disappointing 2-0 defeat.
Nevertheless, given that there is nothing but bragging rights to play for this weekend, Slovakia are unlikely to welcome their counterparts with their guns blazing. So, it is too soon to call a clear winner in this one.
What is certain though is that there will be goals down each end in this one. The home team have failed to find the back of the net just once in their last ten clashes here. And, have racked up eleven goals to their tally from their previous four.
Taking into account that their opponents also got their names on the scoresheet in their last outing, there is certainly reason to believe that neither team will be keeping a clean sheet intact on Sunday.
Furthermore, the hosts have scored two goals or more in three of their previous four fixtures at home, while Paraguay scored four in their most recent trip on the road alone. Considering that the two sides have been a clinical presence in the final third, it looks like a high scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning.
