Ryan Giggs’ men can ill afford to lose this one in Trnava and our tipster is backing both sides to have joy in front at goal at City Arena

Wales can take a big step towards Euro 2020 when they face Slovakia in a qualifying fixture on Thursday.

Ryan Giggs’ side sit fourth in Group E, albeit having played one match fewer than everyone else, but victory in Trnava could lift them as high as second place with three games left.

Slovakia currently occupy second place after winning three of their five fixtures so far, although they did lose 1-0 in Wales back in March.

Slovakia vs Wales Latest Odds

bet365 make the hosts 31/20 (2.55) favourites to pick up their fourth win of Euro 2020 qualifying and leave Wales with it all to do, whilst the draw is available at 11/5 (3.20).

It is 21/10 (3.10) that Giggs leads his country to three points and makes it four wins in a row for Wales over Slovakia.

Slovakia vs Wales Team News

Martin Skrtel, Tomas Hubocan and Adam Nemec will not feature due to their impending international retirements. The trio are in the squad but will not be selected for this match, with Slovakia’s friendly against Paraguay next week serving as a farewell.

MK Dons defender Regan Poole could make his international debut for Wales, who have as many as nine players under the age of 23 in their 26-man squad.

Slovakia vs Wales Preview

Although Wales are not in a bad position in Group E with two wins and two losses, their recent away form is perhaps a worry for Giggs.

The Dragons’ two defeats have both come on the road and they have lost three of their last four such competitive fixtures, scoring in two of those clashes.

Slovakia were on the wrong end of a 4-0 scoreline in their last home game as Croatia blew past Pavel Hapal’s side, making it five of their last six matches in front of their own fans that have seen more than two goals.

Slovakia vs Wales Tips and Predictions

Both teams to score pays out at Evens (2.0) and this could offer excellent value for punters on Thursday night.

Slovakia have managed just one clean sheet in their last five home fixtures whilst Wales have scored in two of their last three competitive away matches.
