Slovakia vs Russia: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:45, Mar 30 2021
Slovakia vs Russia prediction for Tuesday’s World Cup Group H qualifying match at City Arena Trnava in Trnava. Slovakia after drawing their first two matches host Russia who won their first two matches. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Slovakia faced with a difficult opposition

It hasn’t been a good start for Slovakia in the Group H matches after being odds on favorites in their first two matches but still drew with Cyprus and Malta. Moreover, coach Stefan Tarkovic’s men had to come back after going 2-0 down in the first 29 minutes in their match against Malta.

Slovakia have to be at their best as they host Russia with whom they share three wins in their last nine meetings. So far Tarkovic’s team played the lowest-ranked teams in the group and still couldn’t win, something they have done once in their last four matches.

Slovakia have just two wins in their last ten matches. That is not a good form to take to the match against Russia. They can find more positive form in their WCQ games though as they have no losses in their last five WCQ home matches winning four of them.

Russia to keep the momentum

Contrary to their opponents, Russia had a flying start to their World Cup campaign by winning both of their opening matches and look for a third win as they face Slovakia who are ranked 34th five places better than the Russians.

Looking at their World Cup qualifying form, coach Stanislav Cherchesov’s team have won six of their ten away matches with one clean sheet in five matches. In more recent matches and prior to the last two wins, the Russians were winless in five matches.

Their defensive form must be a concern for Cherchesov as they have conceded ten goals in four matches. On the front side, the Russians are relying on Artem Dzyuba who scored three times in the last two matches.

Key Stats

  • Slovakia have won one of their last five WCQ games
  • Slovakia have won three of their last nine home matches
  • Russia have won six of their last nine away matches
  • Russia have one clean sheet in their last five WCQ matches

Slovakia vs Russia Prediction

Both of these teams have suffered defensively in their recent matches. Slovakia have just two clean sheets in their last seven games conceding nine goals in the process, while Russia have no clean sheet in their last four matches.

Slovakia will have to take initiative and attack to find a win as they have just two points from two games in the group. The Russians on the other hand will be left with spaces to break and create chances. 

We think it’s a good bet to back both teams to score in this match as both of them are keen not to lose and have the capablity to score.
