Expert Verdict: Comparing these two national teams along with all the football factors it’s really hard to say who is more likely to take the three points out of this game. It will surely be an even match if both sides keep a high concentration level. A slight advantage goes to Slovakia as they are the home team.
With no points collected, Slovakia are 5th placed in Group F. Coming in this match after a defeat against Slovenia, Slovakia will try to collect some points in their home game against Scotland. After three consecutive loses to Slovenia, England and Germany, the Slovakians will be aiming to stop the negative run.

Midfielders:-Jan Gregus; Michal Duris; Juraj Kucka
Forwards:-Marek Hamsik; Robert Mak
Being in the 2nd place with 2 points less than 1st placed England, Scotland are in a good position. However if Scotland want to stay in that position they need to collect some points from their following game against Slovakia which will surely be hard having in mind their recent playing style in the match against Lithuania where they struggled most of the time.
Defenders:-Callum Paterson; Andrew Robertson; Russel Martin; Grant Hanley
Midfielders:-James McArthur; Robert Snodgras; Matt Ritchie
Forwards:-James Forrest; Chris Martin
The two sides haven’t played against each other yet.
It’s really a hard one to predict the outcome of this match as these are two even teams having in mind their squad capabilities and recent performances. However football analyzers give Slovakia a higher chance of winning as they are playing on a home pitch and Scotland weren’t on their top level of performance in the last game against Lithuania, escaping a near defeat in the 89th minute.
Betting analyzes give Slovakia the higher chance to win in this match. Even though it may be a tough one to guess it right we still believe that a bet on a Slovakia win is a bet you should consider investing in.
