Slovakia vs Spain Match Preview & Team News
Sokoli sit in 2nd place on the table, but they still need to do a lot to secure a place in the eight-finals. The biggest challenge is ahead of them, as Slovakia needs to remain undefeated in this game. Stefan Tarkovic’s side had an excellent start to the campaign, as they celebrated a vital 2:1 victory over Poland. However, they had massive help from their rivals, as they scored an own goal and were outnumbered in the last 30 minutes of the game. Unfortunately for them, Marek Hamsik and the lads didn’t pick up anything against Sweden, as the late penalty kick cost them a defeat. It was their first loss after six straight games, and Slovakia would like to get back on the upbeat track. However, the most challenging opponent is ahead of them, who also desperately needs points to proceed further.
Spain has been quite disappointing so far, as they still haven’t celebrated a win. They wasted tons of chances against Sweden in a goalless draw. Luis Enrique’s side didn’t manage to beat Poland as well, despite having a penalty kick awarded at 1:1. Gerard Moreno hit the post, and it is still unexplainable how Alvaro Morata missed that sitter. The result didn’t change, and La Furia Roja remained 3rd on the table with only two points. Spain plays in front of its fans again, and they don’t have the right for more mistakes, as it would mean their elimination from EURO 2020. Despite being defensively solid, the hosts haven’t been clinical in front of the oppositions’ net lately. Spain needs to go for a victory if they want to continue the pursuit of the title.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The home side is a firm favorite in this one, and everything except their win would be shocking. However, backing Slovakia on the Asian Handicap market might bring more value, as the odds on Spain are very slim. It is not going to be an easy game for the hosts, and we don’t believe Slovakia will lose by more than two goals.
Goals Market Prediction
Neither side has been involved in many high-scoring matches lately. Slovakia will be focused primarily on defending its net, while Spain needs to attack from the very start. Since the hosts were pretty wasteful so far, we will take a risk and go with the Under 2.5 pick for the goals market.
