Slovakia vs Wales prediction and betting tips for 10/10/19 Euro 2020 Qualifying fixture at 8:45 pm. Wales can climb up to second with a win over Slovakia with a game in hand to come.
This is a crucial game in Group E with four nations competing for just two spots. Just four points separate Croatia in first and Wales in fourth with a game in hand for Ryan Giggs’ side as we enter the business end of Euro 2020 qualifying. A win here would be a huge step towards the tournament for Wales and they face another tough task when hosting Croatia this weekend. These next two games will go a long way to deciding Wales’ fate for Euro 2020.

Slovakia have had an up and down qualifying campaign. Home and away wins over Hungary and a win in Azerbaijan leaves the Slovaks with nine points. Croatia won 4-0 in Slovakia in September and their 1-0 loss to Wales in matchday two could yet prove costly. This group is still wide open but a win for Slovakia here will leave Wales with a tough task to get into the top two places in the group, guaranteeing them a place in the tournament next summer. The hosts might have to settle for a point but that would mean that Wales can catch them if they win their game in hand.
Wales are three points behind Slovakia having played one game fewer. The Welsh have two wins so far, the aforementioned 1-0 victory of Slovakia, and a narrow win over Azerbaijan in their last game. Losses to Croatia and Hungary have left the group wide open at this stage and these upcoming fixtures during this international break will go a long way to deciding who finishes in the top two places. Once again Wales will be relying on star man Gareth Bale to get them the three points, just as he did against Azerbaijan last time out.
These are two well-matched sides and it will be hard to separate them. Given what’s at stake it’s likely to be a nervy affair with few goals. No Wales qualifier has had more than three goals scored so far so under 2.5 goals would be an obvious bet on this match but the odds are quite short, so unless you were adding it to an over/under 2.5 goals accumulator it’s best to go one step further. Just one goal separated these two nations last time out and this match is likely to be as close. The first betting tip for the game is under 1.5 goals and that is priced at 9/5 with Unibet.
Gareth Bale scored the winner last time out for Wales as they beat Azerbaijan. He’s the go-to man for Wales and has scored twice for Real Madrid in La Liga despite the unrest. With free-kicks and penalties in his locker, Bale is a good bet to score in Slovakia as he tries to get his nation to another European Championships after their successful appearance in France at Euro 2016. We’re not predicting many goals in this match so Bale to score first might be a good option. A safer bet would be for him to score anytime but after tipping under 1.5 goals, a first scorer is probably worth the risk.
What are the odds for Gareth Bale to score first against Slovakia? 9/2 with Paddy Power are the best odds.
Wales triumphed in the reverse fixture but without the home advantage, it may be a different story this time around. Nevertheless, they have the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Daniel James who could unlock the door for them and if there defence can stay compact as it has done for most of this qualifying campaign, Ryan Giggs’ side can pick up a vital three points this week. A narrow win for either side is plausible but we’re backing Wales. The Welsh only lost 2-1 at World Cup finalists Croatia earlier in the qualifying group so they will have hope of getting a victory in this match to leave themselves in control of their own destiny as they try to qualify for Euro 2020.
What are the odds for Wales to beat Slovakia 1-0? 13/2 with Unibet.
