Why Slovakia Will Win

Slovakia needs to find ways to score. Ultimately, their goal was excellent. But there was nothing else Slovakia could do for the rest of the match as they failed to find the back of the net. Then, they collapsed under the pressure.

Slovakia mustered 10 shots, including five that hit the target. Likewise, passing was solid as they converted on 88 percent. The possession rate was strong, with Slovakia maintaining 55 percent of the ball.

Schranz did a great job, scoring for the second consecutive match. Now, he hopes to make it three in a row. Harasin delivered an assist on two shots. Overall, he has four shots total. Robert Bozenik continues to struggle. Unfortunately, he failed to score again, and he will look for more reassurance in this one.

The midfielders are not generating enough solid passes to set up goals. Because of this, Slovakia is not getting the chance to get enough shots on target. Juraj Kucka and Stanislav Lobotka need to do more to help the Slovakians get more chances to score.

The defense had just a 48 percent tackle success rate. Thus, there was more room for improvement. Denis Vavro had just two tackles and four clears. Meanwhile, Milam Skriniar had five tackles, two clears, and nine interceptions. Peter Pekarik generated 11 tackles, two clears, and four interceptions. Ultimately, this defense did everything to help goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who had two saves but also conceded two goals.

Slovakia will win the match if the midfielders can generate a better possession rate. Then, it will help set up the forwards to generate better scoring chances.

Why Romania Will Win

Romania needs to score. Unfortunately, none of the players could generate a goal in the last match, and they need to find a better way to score.

The Romanians had 10 shots, but just three on target. Likewise, they generated just an 83 percent pass accuracy rate. Romania struggled to possess the ball, controlling it just 45 percent of the time. Somehow, they had seven corner-kick chances and could not score on any of them.

Dennis Mann had two shots and 25 passes. However, he could not do anything after distributing two assists in the first match. Dennis Dragus did nothing after scoring a goal in the opener against Ukraine. Nicolae Stanciu could not score again and did not even generate a shot. Meanwhile, Razvan Marin did nothing after a goal in the first game.

The defense allowed two goals but did solid work for chunks of the game. Overall, they had a 44 percent tackle rate. Nicusor Bancu had eight tackles and three clears. Also, Andrei Burca added seven tackles and eight clears. Radu Dragusin had seven tackles and nine clears. Substantially, they all did their best to help goalkeeper Florin Nita, who had eight saves while conceding two goals.

Romania will win the match if Mann, Dragus, and Stanciu can set up better plays to generate scoring chances. Then, Bancu and Burca need to clear more passes and reduce the pressure on Nita.

Final Slovakia-Romania Prediction & Pick

Slovakia looked amazing after 11 minutes but did nothing afterward. Meanwhile, Romania looked awful after winning the opener against Ukraine. Both countries have three points, which means this match means more to both than ever before. Slovakia looks slightly stronger on paper. However, neither team is strong enough to be the true favorite. The countries have played to a draw on five separate occasions. Consequently, we believe this will be the sixth.
