The friendly fixture is likely to be closely-contested.

This international friendly between two European nations, Slovakia and Wales, is majorly to test each other out before their respective tournaments. Slovakia will be playing their last friendly before they go for the UEFA Euro 2024 group matches.

Sokoli will be playing group matches with Belgium, Ukraine and Romania. Both the teams will also be seen playing Nations League matches from September 2024. Both teams have played limited matches in 2024. Slovakia have performed considerably better than Wales, who have given mixed results. 

This match could turn out to be important for Slovakia, as right after this match they will face some formidable opponents. Wales themselves couldn’t make it to the group phase of UEFA Euro 2024.

If we talk about the FIFA rankings of both the teams, then the hosts stand at 48, whereas Wales are in 29th position.

Players to Watch

David Strelec (Slovakia)

This 23-year-old centre-forward is one of the best young players in the team of Slovakia and also at the club he plays for. Slovan Bratislava is the club which David Strelec represents in the Slovak Super Liga. While playing for the club, Strelec scored 11 goals in 28 matches and also assisted 10 times.

In the Europa League as well he had two goals in two matches. He is a capable forward, against whom the Wales defenders may struggle.

While playing for them in 32 matches, he has scored five goals and assisted 10 times. He is an asset for Wales and can make the difference in the fixture against Slovakia.

Match Prediction for Slovakia vs Wales

This is going to be a tough match for both sides. It’s hard to pick a favourite in this match since both teams are capable enough to defeat each other.
