Ryan Gigg’s men will be on the road to Slovakia on Thursday as they look to build on their close 2-1 victory over Azerbaijan last time out in the qualifying stages of the Euro 2020 campaign. Read on for our Slovakia vs Wales predictions.
Match status: Euro 2020 Qualification - Group E
Venue: City Arena Trnava (Trnava)

Wales have been largely underwhelming in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, occupying 4th position in Group E, where Croatia are frontrunners with 10 points. Slovakia are hot on the tails of the group leaders, just a point behind in second. 

Slovakia manager Pavel Hapal will be scratching his head as he ponders on the right tactics to bring the Welsh team to bare grounds. He will be counting on team captain, Marek Hamsik, to come up with the goods for the country.

Giggs, on the other hand, will be gunning for nothing but a victory when these two teams battle on Thursday, given their struggles so far in the qualifying stages. With 6 points from a possible 12, the onus is on the Manchester United legend to lead his team to success on unfamiliar territory.

The stage is all set for an entertaining and nerve-cracking encounter at the City Arena Trnava as both teams continue their push for a ticket at the Euro 2020 finals that will be played in 12 different host countries.

Slovakia v Wales Team News

It’s been a very inconsistent qualifying campaign for Pavel Hapal’s men, alternating between wins and defeats in successive games. Last time out against Hungary, they managed to pull off a hard-fought 2-1 win, much to the relief of fans.

An encouraging fact was that they snatched this defeat against a rampant Hungary team on away turf. That is a feat worth celebrating.

However, there have been reasons to question their performances at home, given their struggles to replicate their away showings. They were utterly brutalized in their last home game against 2018 World Cup runners up, shipping in four goals.

However, for all their inconsistency, they are just a point behind group leaders Croatia and will be looking to leapfrog them with a win against this Welsh side. As easy as the group appears for Hapal’s men at the moment, Hungary are right behind them on the table, only on goal difference.

Slovakia do not have the luxury of affording fringe players some playing time as a win on Thursday is very paramount in their bid to nail down a spot at the Euro 2020 finals.

Their counterparts for the week have been erratic in their respective games, picking up just 6 points from an available 12. Head coach Ryan Giggs must be tossing the coins right now as he tries to find a solution to his team’s underlying problems.

Despite their struggles, they will be heading into the game in high spirits, having come out tops in the reverse fixture. Therefore, it is safe to say that the momentum lies in the hands of the Welshmen.
