Reasons for betting on England vs Slovakia tip
The ultimate derby of the Group F will take place at Wembley, where the Three Lions are hosting Slovakia. This is going to be the decisive match for both sides. England has 17 points, and are currently at the top of the group. Meanwhile, Slovakia has 15 points, and they also want to reach the first place. It is the central events of the day, and that is why we are going to make a preview of it and propose some solutions for betting.
For more than 50 minutes the Albion was struggling on Malta. Eventually, they scored 4 goals in the second half, putting down a convincing victory. England hasn’t suffered a defeat in these qualifications, and after 7 matches they have 5 wins with 2 draws and a remarkable goal difference of 14 scored and only 2 conceded goals. In the previous 4 games of the qualifiers, England has scored at least two goals. When playing at home, they kept clean sheets in all three games, meanwhile netting 7 times. The hosts will need at least one point in this match, in order to maintain the distance between them and the guests. But we are sure that Gareth Southgate plans to win.
A late own goal from Miha Mevlja, gave a fantastic opportunity for the Slovaks to reach the first place in this group. But that will be one challenging assignment because they need to defeat England at Wembley. After two minimal losses at the start of the campaign, Slovakia recorded 5 straight victories in which they have scored 13 goals. Meanwhile, the defense was superb, and on 3 occasions during that span, it held their net intact. The biggest strength of Slovakia is a strong midfield led by Marek Hamsik from Napoli. They prefer a tactical game with a slow tempo, where they wait for a counter-attack. In all 3 games away from home in these qualifications, Slovakia conceded at least once. Even against Malta.
Head to head matches
England dominated in the first leg, especially in the second half of it. The only scorer in this game was Adam Lallana in the 5th minute of the injury time.
The Three Lions were struggling to find a way to the net, and eventually, Liverpool forward was lucky, bringing three points to his team.
In the end, it seems that those three points are going to be the crucial ones in the fight for Russia.
Today’s rivals met at Euro 2016 in France, and the game concluded with a goalless draw.
Prediction for England vs Slovakia tip
When playing at home England is a favorite against almost any opponent in the world.
Especially when they are in the position, where winning is essential.
For the first suggestion, we would take England to win. Simply, we think that they are better than the Slovaks.
The second idea would be Harry Kane to score anytime. Tottenham Hotspurs striker scored two times in Malta, and we are expecting from him to continue in the same manner.
