BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Wednesday evening, Slovakia host Spain, with the 2012 winners needing to get three points to stay in the competition.
The home team head into this game with not much of a chance according to BoyleSport who have them priced at 14/1 to win. They have done well though so far with three points from two games so far, beating Poland in the first game.
Slovakia made it to the Round of 16 in 2016, but doing so this year will be tough. They need just one point from this game but against Spain, that is a lot easier said than done!
In their squad are some very experienced players in Hamsik, Skriniar, and Pekarik. These will need to be at their best to stop Spain from finally getting their first win of the summer.
Spain are the outright favorites for this game at 1/5. They are yet to win in Euro 2020 but have one everything right, bar score goals. They have kept the ball well in both games, 85%, and 77% possession but can’t turn it into goals.
Luis Enrique’s side are one of the most successful in the competition. They won it in 2008 and 2021. However, with just one goal so far, they won’t get anywhere near that unless they can find a way to get more out of Morata and Moreno.
The Spanish squad is full of quality players such as Thiago, Rodri, Busquets, Alba, and Laporte. They have more than enough to beat any of the sides in their group and the game against Slovakia is where they should finally get their first win.
Slovakia have no confirmed injury absentees for this clash.
Busquets is still a doubt for the game with illness.
The pressure is on for Spain now and we think they will step up to it and beat Slovakia comfortably.
