In the debut of the World Cup European qualifiers, we already see a remake of an Euro 2016 match – Slovakia versus England.
We remember that their European Championship clash was dominated by the British, who did everything but put the ball in the back of the net. This game will surely be different because it starts a long campaign for both teams.
World Cup 2018 Qualifying: Betting Prediction, Odds & Tips
Slovakia vs England – 4th September
This time around, the game will take place in Slovakia, which is one of the only advantages the central European country has over their opponents.
They’ve shown they are a disciplined and hard-working squad in recent times, but their offensive powers heavily depend on Hamsik or Weiss. A point against England to start off their campaign will surely be welcomed.
Meanwhile, the English have troubles of their own. After a very disappointing exit at the European Championships, Sam Allardyce was brought to lead the national team – a coach who was widely in charge of mid-table teams or relegation candidates.
The English also have lots of players with little experience in international games, but their sheer quality should put them through.
Lots of leading teams in the Premier League are currently relying on English players, which greatly benefits the national team. Rooney still keeps the captain’s armband, but this is probably his last session in the national team.
Slovakia vs England Betting Prediction & Tips
From a betting perspective, we have quite a few ideas, mainly all revolving around England not disappointing us and their supporters. We back England not to lose (X2), score at least one goal, and for those who fancy bold bets, we even think a solo away win to be something to consider.
Also, possession will most probably not be with the home side, and the only place the Slovakians are expected to lead is in yellow cards and fouls. And if you’re looking for a goalscorer, Harry Kane is the type of striker which shines in these games.
Result/Total Goals – England & Under 2.5: 3.75 or 11/4
