Our Prediction:

Slovakia (W) will win

Latvia (W) – Slovakia (W) Match Prediction | 05-10-2019 12:00

While they look destined for promotion to the top tier, thats left both Slovakia and the Czech Republic worried about relegation. Can either of them claim their first Nations League win, and ignite their hopes of finishing top? Both Slovakia and the Czech Republic lost their opening matches in this competition to Ukraine, which has pushed them onto six points, putting them comfortably clear at the summit. Ukraine are the early frontrunners in Group 1 in the second tier of the UEFA Nations League.

The home side will be desperate to bounce back from their Ukraine defeat, and home comforts should give them a great chance to turn things around. The away side have a poor record in away trips, which was carried on with their loss to the Russians. Their only away wins in World Cup qualifying were at San Marino and Azerbaijan, and this is a huge step up from those tests.

Their only away wins in World Cup qualifying were at San Marino and Azerbaijan, and this is a huge step up from those tests. The away side have a poor record in away trips, which was carried on with their loss to the Russians. The home side will be desperate to bounce back from their Ukraine defeat, and home comforts should give them a great chance to turn things around.

After all, they were solid in World Cup qualifying, and they have enough quality to pull off a strong finish in this group. The hosts were handed a win on a platter last time out, as they crushed Denmark 3-0 in a friendly. Saturdays home game is a chance for Slovakia to get things back on track, and make a possible tilt for top spot. However, that was against a second string Danish side, and they were brought back to earth with a 1-0 loss away to Ukraine days later.

That great run should continue in this clash, so were backing them to claim all three points and put the Czechs in a really difficult position. A home win is our tip, along with a 1-0 correct score. Slovakia have won six of their last seven home matches, and they managed to win their last four World Cup qualifiers at home to nil.

That was followed by a hammering against Russia, which really laid out the Czechs problems. They were no match for Northern Ireland in qualifying, and streets behind Germany. The visitors did win against Nigeria in a pre-World Cup friendly, but they barely challenged for a place in Russia themselves. That doesnt seem likely on recent evidence. The visitors had a terrible time in September, losing at home to Ukraine in their Nations League debut. Will things improve for them in the Nations League?

As it was their turn to sit out on Friday night, Hungary saw Croatia go above them in Group E on goal difference. The Slovaks need to bounce back after receiving a hammering from Croatia last time out. With Wales creeping up behind, the Hungarians will be looking to continue moving in the right direction by beating a downbeat Slovakia side.

Against a side that created next to nothing against Croatia recently and who struggled to get going on the road in Wales, the Hungarians are backed to maintain their 100% home record in Group E. On this basis, Hungary appear to be slightly overpriced in the early betting and thus a punt on a home win is worthwhile. Slovakia wonthe reverse fixture, but theyve since gone backwards and have struggled against decent opposition, while the opposite is true of the hosts.
