World Cup Qualification Previews & Predictions

England can expect a much stiffer test as they face up against Slovakia on Monday at Wembley. The Three Lions came through an uninspiring win against Malta on the weekend to keep themselves top of Group F and this could be the big three points on offer for them. A win in this one puts them five points clear of second-placed Slovakia with just the two games remaining in the group. So the pressure will be on the Three Lions to put in a good performance and the three points on the board to edge closer to Russia 2018.

England vs Slovakia Betting Tips

After their 4-0 win over Malta on the weekend, England can take a huge stride towards winning the group with three points in this Wembley fixture. A win moves them five points clear of Slovakia, but that means, of course, there is some pressure to deliver because a slip would mean that they would fall into second place. England have been convincing enough on home soil though with no goals conceded in victories over Scotland, Lithuania, and Malta. It’s fair to say though that more goals will have been expected of them across the qualification campaign and things will be tight against Slovakia. An England to win to nil at bet365 for this fixture is a price of 21/20. England took a 1-0 win in Slovakia in their opening qualification match and that was after their 0-0 draw at the European Championships last summer.

Slovakia are a tough side and England aren’t blessed with great creativity, so under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 4/5. Harry Kane is 10/11 anytime goalscorer favourite for this one after getting on the scoresheet on Saturday against Malta. England have lost just one of their last 21 competitive fixtures, so an upset doesn’t look too likely, but while Gareth Southgate has called on them to excite the home crowd, they probably won’t because Slovakia are a well organised side. In the bet365 correct score market, an England 1-0 result returns a price of 5/1 and they have played host to Slovakia just twice before. Their most recent was a 4-0 friendly win over them back in 2009 which followed a 2-1 win over them in their first meetting in England.

Slovakia are battling for at least second place which will make them dangerous. They have recovered well after losing their opening two games of the campaign. They are on a five match winning streak in the group now and carrying some form. They have gone W2 L1 in their three away games, beating Lithuania and Malta and losing at Slovenia. Definitely, there will be a concern as they have conceded exactly one goal in each of their three away games in the group through which suggests England will get an opening or two. Dinamo Bucharest striker Adam Nemec is a decent threat and he is a quote of 5/1 in the anytime goalscorer market, and Marek Hamsik is a 4/1 option. England have only scored one goal more than Slovakia have done in the group, but how many chances will the visitors get at Wembley to convert?
