Euro 2016: Wales vs Slovakia

Wales vs Slovakia Betting tip and Predictions. In the first match of EURO 2016 in Group B, Wales take on Slovakia at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, Bordeaux. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Wales vs Slovakia.


Wales qualified on EURO 2016 after they finish the group phase at the second position in the qualifications for this competition. This is the big success for them, but they want more and their main goal is to go through and qualify in the 1/8 finals. Wales played four friendly matches this year and didn’t win at all, three lost matches and one draw. Netherlands beat them 2-3, after that they played against Northern Ireland 1-1, while in the last two preparing matches they lost both. Ukraine beat them 1-0, while Sweden smashed them 3-0. If they want to make good result on this competition they will have to improve their performance, especially in the attack.

Slovakia qualified directly on this competition after they finished at the second position in the qualifications for EURO 2016. After qualifications they have played 7 friendly matches and didn’t lose at all (4-3-0), including victory against WORLD CUP 2014 Champions Germany 1-3. Slovakia have improved their performance in the last few years and make progress. They deserved to play on this competition and in my opinion they have good chances to reach the next phase on EURO. Slovakia have already played against Wales in the qualifications for EURO 2008 and their result are more than interesting. Slovakia lost at home against Wales 2-5, while in the second leg they beat Wales away 1-5.
