Slovakia – Netherlands : Preview & Prediction
While most nations are in preparation for the next World Cup, this is not the case for Slovakia and the Netherlands. If they have not been qualified for the international event, the two European countries still benefit from this tour of June to prepare for the future. Facing each other in Trnava, Slovakia and the Netherlands will both try to win. After finishing second in their pool, the Slovaks were unable to play in the last playoffs, having finished in the last place of the best runners-up. However, Marek Hamsik’s teammates have been convincing and even more so at home. For their part, the Netherlands finished in third place in their qualifying group, tied with Sweden. Having been rebuilding for some years now, the Oranjes hope to lay their foundations for the future.
Slovakia has won its last seven meetings in front of its public.
In the playoffs, Slovakia only had one home defeat. It was against England by conceding the opening of the score in the last seconds.
The Netherlands only won two of their five trips during qualifying.
This meeting between Slovakia and the Netherlands could be very indecisive. If the Dutch come back well for a few months, Ronaldo Koeman’s men will have a lot to do in Slovakia. Very difficult to move in front of their supporters, the Slovaks could well manage to keep the Oranjes in check.
