Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Slovakia and Republic of Ireland face each other at Tehelne pole in the Euro playoffs semis in what is expected to be a close encounter. Slovakia have been anything but impressive in the UEFA Nations League, with the team losing to Czech Republic, while sharing the spoils with Israel. Martin Skrtel is no longer playing for the national team, but former Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
The Boys in Green, on the other hand, will be without Troy Parrott, who is sidelined with injury, but both Robbie Brady and Callum O’Downda are included despite missing games for their respective clubs. Anyhow, a low-scoring clash is on the cards in Zenica as both teams are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the European Championship playoffs, semi-final. It has to be noted that the two sides shared the spoils in each of their previous four meetings in all competitions.
