Estadio Olímpico de la Cartuja, Sevilla, Spain.
In the final round of the group stage, Spain will only be satisfied with a win against Slovakia. So far, La Roja have only 2 scored and 1 goal. Luis Enrique’s side are close to failure. Can the Spaniards beat the Slovaks? Here are a few bets on the upcoming encounter.
Slovakia could be three points short
If the Slovakian team loses to the Spaniards, they will finish the tournament with three points. Firstly, Slovakia might even finish in 4th place. Second, even if they finish in third place, they might not even make the playoffs because they would fall in the third group below the top 4. So, for the Slovaks, everything will depend on the result of the match against Spain. If they score at least a point, they will be in the playoffs; if they lose, they go home.
Spain look weak in defence
Luis Enrique’s team at UEFA EURO 2020 have quality and efficient possession of the ball but are extremely weak in creating scoring chances. The intermediate result in terms of attack is 1 goal and only 2 points scored. The Spaniards played out a nil draw against Sweden and failed to outplay the Polish team, 1-1.
The main reason for the Spanish team’s poor attacking performance was a generational change. La Roja are led by Dani Olmo and Ferran Torres, who are young and inexperienced. The only experienced player is Alvaro Morata, whose level is generally not too high.
Expert Betting Tips
Spain do not look like a strong contender at the Euros, not at all. Slovakia need points in the upcoming match, and they will have a chance to get them. The prediction is a draw. The Slovakian team can hardly count on a win as the Spaniards do control the ball well. But a draw that will leave both teams with a chance of making the playoffs could well happen.
