Home I Latest News I England vs. Slovakia Betting Preview
In the upcoming England vs. Slovakia match, the Three Lions can make a huge step towards the World Cup qualification. Slovakia, however, is just two points behind England and it will be interesting to see how both teams will approach one of the most important matches of the qualifiers.
England successfully played in Malta on Friday, but the team didn’t really impress a lot. Even though Gareth Southgate’s squad managed to beat Malta 4-0, it was quite a mediocre performance.
England scored all of their goals in the second half and really struggled to score and even create scoring opportunities in the first half.
Nevertheless, England is obviously still the strongest team in Group F. There are just three games left and they could make a great step forward by winning against Slovakia on Monday.
Slovakia has currently won five straight matches and has been playing well on offense. However, their biggest strength is their impressive defense. The Eastern European team has conceded only 4 goals in 7 matches and lost the last game at home against England 0-1.
Taking the importance of the upcoming match into consideration, it is to be expected that Slovakia will focus on not conceding any early goals. Therefore they are most likely to rely on their counter attack since England tends to be a rather ball-possession oriented team lately.
As we have already discussed, we are leaning towards a low goals match. Both teams have conceded a combined 6 goals in 14 games. Due to the fact that basically the ticket to the World Cup in Russia is on the line I don’t expect England to risk everything in the beginning minutes of the match. Slovakia is also going to play defense first.
Therefore we would recommend you to bet on the Under 2.5 goals @ 1.85 provided by Bet365. Another possible option would be the both teams to score market. It is obviously the less risky option and that’s why the odds are lower in this case. However, BetVictor offers odds of 1.70 on both teams not to score which seems reasonable.
