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. Ukraine are the early frontrunners in Group 1 in the second tier of the UEFA Nations League. 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. Can either of them claim their first Nations League win, and ignite their hopes of finishing top?

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

Slovakia (w)-Latvia (w) livescore, h2h, predictions and results

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.

The Slovaks did beat whipping boys Azerbaijan, but beating a side of such low quality isnt exactly something to shout about. On that occasion, they failed to get involved offensively, creating 0.37 expected goals, while they simply didnt compete at the back. On Friday night, the Slovaks slumped to defeat at home against Croatia, losing by four goals to nil.

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.

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 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.
