Two teams who certainly need a result meet in their 2nd game of the group stage.
From Group B, it’s Russia taking on Slovakia here. Russia currently sits tied for 2nd with a point, while the Slovaks find themselves at the bottom with 0 points.
The Russian play on the field has not been what the media has been talking about.
Russia and it’s fans are under investigation for actions that took place before, during, and after the game. It started with riots with the English fans that involved massive fights and left dozens injured.
During the game, a Russian fan lit a flare and fired it toward the England fans. After the game, the Russian fans rushed toward the England sections and almost scared them out of the stadium.
All the attention has been taken away from a Russian team that earned an impressive point in their opener. They got dominated in possession and goal attempts, but a 92nd minute equalizer by Berezutski set things up for Russia moving forward.
With 3rd place teams having a chance to advance this time around, that point could come in handy. Russia rarely had chances on net, but their back line held strong for a majority of the game.
That will be the case here against Slovakia as attacks for both teams will be slim to none.
Set pieces and corner kicks will be vital as it gives Russia the best chance to find the back of the net.
Slovakia plays a very similar style to the Russians.
They like to sit back and get their advantages either one the counter, or with endless possession until they find a nice ball to play in. Slovakia won’t poise a threat going down the middle of the field.
This team is extremely strong in the midfield area. Marek Hamsik will be a crucial player here. He holds down the middle of the field, while being able to find that forward over the top.
After dropping the first game 2-1 to Wales, this is a must win for Slovakia. Even a point doesn’t help them all that much.
Look for Slovakia to push forward if things hold even early on as they know a result is necessary.
Free Russia vs. Slovakia Euro 2016 Prediction:
These two teams play so similar to one another that a break through could be tough.
It’s the old cliche, but set pieces in the attacking half are so important here for both teams.
4* Free Euro 2016 Betting Pick: Draw
In the end, this has the making of one of those 0-0 games. A point for Russia would be okay for them, but a loss could mean the end. If things are close late, look for them to park the bus and take that point.
Euro 2016 Free Score Prediction: Russia 0 – Slovakia 0
