Scotland vs Slovakia Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Scotland vs Slovakia will be very interesting match for us, both to watch and to bet on, and very important match for both of the teams. We are expecting one very dynamic and active match where both teams will give their maximum in order to earn all three points and secure or advance at the table in their group.
Scotland bounced back after not so bright start and in this match they enter after four matches without defeat including three victories. In their last few games they showed really good team play and discipline which will be much needed in this match. They will try to use their dominancy in air and will be mostly focused on breaks and free kicks.
On the other side, Slovakia surprised everyone in these qualifications with their play. They are, we can say, one of the most pleasant surprises in these qualifications and are presented as one of the most unwanted opponents. They have very good team made of very good and well played individuals who are all eager to prove themselves and this is their strongest weapon. They will dominate in speed and will control the ball at the midfield and therefore we can expect many fast counterattacks and lots of excitements from their side. Neither of two teams will risk too much, but on the other side, none of them will be satisfied with a draw and it will be only a matter of time who will be the first one to open and start attacking.
When it comes to their mutual encounters, two teams played once before, earlier in these qualifications and Slovakia won declassing Scotland with 3-0. In this match they enter as favorites, but Scotland’s upraising form should not be underestimated. Lots of scoring chances and excitements on both sides are expected and we will definitely enjoy in this match.
