Slovakia vs Croatia for the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers match on Friday at City Arena Trnava Stadium.
For this Friday we will present Slovakia vs Croatia Tip. So the world runner-up faces a team that has been doing well lately.
In fact, Croatia’s good phase seems to be over, so an away game could be a problem for the team as Slovakia have been surprising many opponents.
Thus Slovakia may take the pitch with slight favouritism, but nothing that can guarantee a victory for the team.
In this case, we must list at least two important team wins. Namely, they beat Hungary 2 × 0 and Ukraine 4 × 1. Those were results not as expected.
Thus, the team enters the pitch, confident that it is possible to win. In their last relevant game, they lost to Wales by 1 × 0 playing away. In the meantime, there were 4 shots on goal for the home team and 5 for Slovakia.
Indeed, the team suffered a goal 5 minutes into the match, which complicated the life for the squad.
In their last match, the Croatian team lost at home to Tunisia by 2 × 1. Impressive that, their goal was scored in their only shot in the game. That is, something unacceptable for the runner-up.
Thus, the team enters the pitch needing a victory to overcome Slovakia in the classification.
However, we cannot expect excellent performance from the team. In fact, it has been showing a weak attack and an unarticulated midfield.
The game in question is of poor technical quality. So we cannot expect a big match.
Slovakia is most likely to value possession as it did against Wales. That way we are likely to have a game in midfield.
Since neither team has shown counterattacking power and speed, we should have a match with few goals.
