Slovakia vs Wales Prediction

Pavel Hapal’s men have been alternating between wins and defeats in their campaign so far, the last of which was a 2-1 victory on the road against Hungary. However, the hosts failed to pull off a similar result in their last clash at home, with 2018 World Cup runners up thrashing four unanswered goals past them to walk away with all the spoils for themselves.

At the moment, the home team are just a point away from overtaking Croatia at the helm. Be that as it may, though, the squad does not have the luxury to loosen up as Hungary are right behind them in the table, and are currently level with them on points, separated only on goal difference.

Their counterparts for the week, have been erratic in their respective clashes, and have tasted success in just two of their last four games, one of which was against this very same opponent. The away side have lost their previous two outings in the group stages. Both of which, however, to their defense, was by narrow one-goal margins.

Furthermore, it is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been faring well against this foe in their previous head to head clashes and have admitted defeat just once in their last four. Considering that Slovakia have just one win under their belt at home as well, the safest punt would have to be a double chance favoring Wales rather than the hosts.

Additionally, Wales have opened the scoring in half of their previous four games, that too in the first half. Taking into account that the visitors have also been breaching this foe before the break, in each of their last two head to head meetings, count on Wales to find the back of the net in the opening forty-five minutes without fail.
