Slovakia vs Spain: Predictions and Betting Tips
The Slovaks, who initially started as the weakest team in the group, go into the third match with three points. A single point would be enough to go through as runners-up or as one of the best third-placed teams in all the groups.
In their second match, the Slovaks lost 1-0 against Sueca, putting in a rather poor performance, especially in attack.
Out of a total of six meetings with the Spanish, the Slovaks have won only once.
The Spaniards go into the third match knowing that a defeat in this match will knock them out of the Euros.
Spanish fans have been widely criticising the performance of their national team. There has been growing discontent, as following their recent style of play and poor results over the last few games, mean many are not confident of seeing Spain reaching the quarter finals.
The most criticism have been levied against Álvaro Morata, as he has wasted many opportunities to score, and against Luis Enrique, the Spanish coach.
- Slovakia have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games
- Two wins, two draws and one defeat for Slovakia in their last five games
- Two wins and three draws for Spain in their last five games
- Three consecutive draws for Spain
- Spain have only scored one goal in their last three matches
Slovakia vs Spain Predictions
The match is like a final for the Spaniards; a defeat knocks them out of the competition whilst a draw might just qualify them as one of the best third place teams. But going for a draw is too risky and given how important this match is we think that the Spaniards will play very offensively this match and will scrape a win over Slovakia, who certainly know how to defend but lack the skills in attack.
Spain have been struggling to score in recent matches and it can be difficult to break through the Slovakian defensive wall so we think this match can have less than 1.5 total goals.
