Slovakia take on Wales in their UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier at the City Arena Trnava on Thursday night. Slovakia will hope to maintain their position at number two in Group E behind 2018 FIFA World Cup runners-up Croatia. Pavel Hapal & Co. will host a determined Ryan Giggs-led Wales outfit who will be aiming at bagging all three points away from home. Here is our take on both teams along with the predicted line-up.
Wales will be up against a strong Slovakian side as they travel to the City Arena Trnava on Thursday night. In the absence of experienced midfielder Aaron Ramsey, Wales coach Ryan Giggs will hope attacking players like Daniel James and Gareth Bale lead his team to a victory. Meanwhile, Pavel Hapal will back his centre-back duo of Martin Skrtel and Milan Skriniar to thwart the Wales attackers in front of the home fans. Expect an exciting match-up in Thursday's Euro 2020 qualifier. Will Wales do enough to move up the table in Group E?
