Slovakia vs Denmark Preview

Slovakia vs Denmark

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium – Stadion Antona Malatinského

Date: 5th September 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Slovakia host Denmark in this friendly game as they look to get over their disappointment of not reaching the World Cup in Russia.

These two teams will be using this game as a preparation for their upcoming UEFA National League games later in the week.

Slovakia haven’t been in good form since they failed to qualify for the World Cup, and they come into this game off the back of a 1-1 draw against Netherlands and a 2-1 loss to Morocco in May and June.

The Slovaks should however be confident that they can get a result here after winning against the Danes the last time they met in Denmark.

Denmark, by contrast, had a good run at the World Cup as they reached the quarterfinals before being beaten by eventual runner ups, Croatia on penalties.

Their fans will be hoping that they haven’t lost that momentum, and that could give them an away win here.

Denmark have some issues that has threatened the presence of Christian Eriksen and Kasper Schmeichel in this game however they should still be able to field a good side.

Denmark should also be boosted by the fact that they won the last time they visited their hosts.

Bookmakers make Slovakia extremely strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this tie which will certainly attract Danish fans who back Denmark to win at long odds.
