When it comes to trusting any Euro 2016 predictions, always go with your gut feeling. At least that’s how it will be for this Saturday’s second face-off. Every Wales vs. Slovakia prediction indicates that it will be a real close call when the two Group B teams go against each other. On June 11, viewers at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux will see which team closes in on that victory. But, till then, you might want a supposed answer to the question, “Who will win Wales vs. Slovakia?”
Predicting this one is going to be real tough! Predicting who will win the Wales vs. Slovakia match is going to be real hard for any soccer analyst. It will be equally tricky for all the Euro fans to favor either one of them. After Saturday’s first Group stage clash between Albania and Switzerland, the UEFA Euro 2016 telecast will switch over to another anticipated group stage match. The UEFA Euro 2016 France has three matches lined up on June 11 and Wales vs. Slovakia is one of them!
Who Will Win Wales vs. Slovakia?
Before Saturday begins, football fans from across the world are eager to read the latest Euro 2016 predictions and see the traits of their favorite team. For some, reading about the Wales vs. Slovakia predictions helps them choose their favorite among the two. Every team in UEFA Euro 2016 has strength to win the tournament, but there are always those few champion teams that shatter even the strongest ones. That’s why the Euro 2016 standings keep on changing, and with that, there’s no certain answer to the question, “Who will win Euro 2016?”
Until the very final stages of UEFA Euro 2016, there is no team likely to be called a sure-shot winner. The group stage clashes will begin this weekend, and those results will make the first change in the Euro 2016 standings.
And, the most awaited Euro 2016 match of this week is Wales vs. Slovakia. Scouting all the Wales vs. Slovakia predictions out there, deducing one definite winner among them is really hard. Out of Group B, Wales and Slovakia have equal chances of advancing to the next stage. However, inclining towards some facts from these predictions, we can say that Slovakia has the edge.
As we breakdown the strengths, key players, and the lineups of both the teams, we must let you know their current standings in international football. The reason that predicting this match is tough is because both teams stand at the nearly the same level with Slovakia being on the 24th spot and Wales being on the 26th spot on the FIFA World Ranking. On top of that, Group B has the toughest competitors of UEFA Euro history, and they include England, Russia, Wales, and Slovakia.
Some football pundits deem Wales to be the weakest of the lot, but they are still ranked higher than Euro champions Russia. Wales’ head coach, Chris Coleman, and his squad have not performed well in this season’s pre-tournament. After that terrible defeat by Sweden in the Euro send off game, their only chance to make it into Euro 2016 is with Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale. If the team works towards giving Bale more opportunities at scoring then Slovakia may run into trouble. That is why the Wales lineup is 5-4-1 with Bale in the lead.
And, Slovakia will have a genuine 4-3-2-1 lineup and a stronger defense line. Slovakia’s defense is a bit stronger than its offense, thanks to Peter Pekarik, Norbert Gyomber, and Jan Durica. This gives us a predicted result of 1-0 with a slight favor towards Slovakia.
