Slovakia vs Spain Predictions and Betting Tips
Spain is staring at an early exit in the European Championship as they take on Slovakia in their final group game this Wednesday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
La Roja heads into this game slightly ahead of their opponents with regards to their h2h record having won two of the four meetings between them. Slovakia, with just one win, would be keen on pulling off a decent performance this Wednesday. Which side would come out atop?
Enrique and his troops in desperate need of maximum points
Slovakia kicked off their tournament in the best possible way having got the better of Poland in a highly entertaining 2-1 victory. However, an Isak-inspired Swedish side looked too much for them to handle as Slovakia fell to a 1-0 scoreline on Matchday 2. As it stands, they’re currently in 2nd place with a one-point lead ahead of Wednesday’s opponents.
Spain still hasn’t found the optimal attacking formula as they head into their third group stage match still in search of their first win. They were, once again, left to rue their missed chances against Poland on Matchday 2 as both sides played out a 1-1 draw. This only amps up the importance of this final game as it could mean a shock exit in the group stage for the first time since the 2004 European Championship.

Slovakia vs Spain Prediction: 0-1
We expect to see a highly competitive matchup this Wednesday as both sides would head into this game with different agendas. Slovakia needs just one point to advance through to the last 16, while the Spaniards would need maximum points to guarantee themselves a place in the last 16. The Spaniards have been let down by bad finish from their frontline, most especially Alvaro Morata. However, we would be banking on them to get the job done this time around.
