Slovakia vs Luxembourg – Betting Preview

When Slovakia hosts Luxembourg at City Arena Trnava on Thursday, they will be looking to make a strong start to their EURO 2024 qualifying campaign after missing out on a spot at the World Cup finals!

Slovakia Preview

The Slovaks are on a five-game losing streak in all competitions, but they won’t have a better opportunity to turn things around than now. Midfielder Stanislav Lobotka of the home team, who is having a career year with Serie A’s top team Napoli, is a player to watch out for.

After drawing 0-0 with Chile in an international friendly, Slovakia gets ready for this game.

Slovakia has scored six goals in their last six games, averaging one goal per match under Francesco Calzona.

At least one of the two keepers has emerged with a clean sheet from 13 of the previous 17 Slovakia home matches at this level, so thrilling encounters at this venue have been few and far between.

The Slovakia manager Francesco Calzona has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.

Luxembourg Preview

Luxembourg was putting up strong performances during the most recent UEFA Nations League season, and it is reasonable to predict a home victory given that Slovakia outplayed Luxembourg in both of their previous games.

Gerson Rodrigues, an Al Wehda striker who once played for Dynamo Kiev, has 15 goals to his credit in 51 appearances for the Luxembourg national team, thus Slovakia defenders should keep him at bay.

Prior to this match, Luxembourg and Bulgaria played in an international friendly match that ended in a 0-0 draw.

In their most recent six games, Luxembourg under Luc Holtz have seen eight goals awarded for their efforts on goal. The total number of goals they have let up in those same games is 9.

Due to a completely healthy group ready to go, the Luxembourg boss Luc Holtz has zero fitness worries at all before this match.

Luxembourg defeated Macedonia in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but a victory over Czech Republic in the 1996 European Championship qualifying match is considered the team’s biggest success!

1×2 Betting Odds

Let’s begin analysing the 1×2 market

We have a feeling that Slovakia will likely score the goals they need against Luxembourg, who may have trouble finding the back of the net.

The home side are the favourites to win this @ 1.55.

At the end of regulation, Slovakia will likely have a comfortable victory.

So that makes the away side, Luxembourg, the underdog in this! Their odds of victory stand @ 6.50.

The market odds of a stalemate at the end of the 90, stands @ 4.30.

Total goals over/under

Let’s check the over/under scenario

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.95.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.96.

Over the course of their last 11 away matches in Euro 2024, Luxembourg have been involved in a staggering 11 contests in which under 2.5 goals have been netted, so achieving consistency has not proven too difficult on this particular front.

This has also been the case in six of the previous seven Slovakia games at this level, indicating that something similar is on the cards.
