Slovakia hosts Croatia
Slovakia hosts Croatia in a game from Group E of the Euro 2020 qualifications. We are going to discuss this fixture in Trnava in our sure win prediction today. Let’s go.
Slovakia are going well in this group, currently being second in the standings with 6 points. Pavel Hapai’s team suffered a defeat against Wales in Cardiff, but in the same time the Falcons achieved important wins over Hungary and Azerbaijan. These two wins are keeping Slovakia in the fight for qualification for the next European Championship.
In their last game the Falcons visited Azerbaijan in Baku and showed their best football, winning the game in the most dominant way possible – 5-1. Everything on the pitch worked for the visitors, who won the match with a brace from the legend Marek Hamsik and goals from Stanislav Lobotka, Juraj Kucka and David Hancko. Usually it’s not easy to play in Baku, but Slovakia really dominated in this match.
Meanwhile the World Cup finalists Croatia are currently third in Group E with the same amount of points as their next opponent – 6. The Balkan team lost its visit to Hungary in Budapest, but enjoyed wins over Azerbaijan and Wales.
In Croatia’s last game in the group the Blazers hosted Wales in Osijek and achieved a 2-1 win over the Dragons. Wales’ Jamie Lawrence scored himself an own goal after just 17 minutes of playing, while Ivan Perisic doubled the hosts’ lead. At the end of the game David Brooks scored for the Brits, but the Blazers managed to keep their lead and win.
In this match Croatia are going to be without the services of the influental midfielder Ivan Rakitic, who was left out of the team because of his complicated situation in Barcelona.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the European qualification between Slovakia and Croatia. We believe that these two teams will go toe to toe on Friday. Let’s see.
