Wales are battling to get themselves through to Euro 2020. A defeat on the road in this one on Thursday would be devastating for them. They go into the game trailing Slovakia by three points.

Slovakia News and Form

Slovakia will be in a great position if they can get three points out of this one. They sit second in the group, trailing Croatia by a point. Earlier in the campaign, Slovakia suffered a 1-0 loss when they visited Wales so they need to get a bigger win than to hold the head to head tie-breaker advantage over Wales, if it comes down to that. Slovakia are W3 D0 L2 in the group, the other loss happening against Croatia.

Slovakia have taken only one victory in their last four European Championship home qualifiers (D1 L2) so haven’t been in hot home form. They have failed to score in three of those four as well. If you look at their overall home form to include all types of matches then they are W3 L1 in their last four. Slovakia have scored at least two goals in each of their last four successes at home.

Slovakia v Wales Head to Head

Wales have won the last three meetings
Slovakia are W1 L3 in the overall head to head with Wales
Three of the five previous meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
The one previous meeting in Croatia ended in a 5-2 win for Wales in 2007

Wales News and Form

Wales have a game in hand over everyone else, but that’s not going to help them out if they lose this fixture. The Welsh are W2 D2 in Group G and along with their victory over Slovakia, their one other success was a narrow success at home over Azerbaijan, with Gareth Bale sparing their blushes by netting the winner about five minutes from time. They have lost in Croatia and Hungary in their road games.

It is the road form that Wales have to be concerned about. They are W2 D1 L5 in their last eight away internationals. They are currently on a three-match losing streak on their travels as well. Wales have scored in just three of their last eight out on the road. Given that two of their last three defeats away from home have happened against Albania and Hungary, both 1-0 losses, punters are going to have a hard time trusting them again Slovakia.

Slovakia v Wales Tips & Odds

Home win at 11/8
Under 1.5 goals at 13/8

Who will win – Slovakia v Wales Predictions

Slovakia are a tough side and are good enough to reverse their loss in Cardiff from earlier in the campaign. The away form of Wales just has not been there, it hasn’t been good enough and they are unlikely to have the goals in them to win this. Home win.
