Belgium

The side qualified for euro 2024 without significant problems after finishing first in their group. Belgium didn’t lose a game, ending the campaign with an impressive goal difference – 22:4. This is going to be the 7th European Championship for Belgium. In 2021, the national side was eliminated in quarter-finals. Belgium have won both of their recent friendly games, beating Montenegro (2:0) and Luxembourg (3:0).

 

Thibaut Courtois, who has 102 caps, will miss the tournament following the decision taken by the head coach. Michy Batshuayi (27 goals) will miss Euro 2024 too.

 

  • Belgium have a 9-games unbeaten run in official games (6 wins and 3 draws).
  • Belgium have scored the first goal in 5 out of their last 6 Euro 2024 qualifying games.
  • Belgium have scored at least a goal in the first half in their last 6 Euro qualifying games.

Slovakia

Slovakia confidently qualified for Euro 2024. They won 7 out of their 10 games in the group. Slovakia lost both games versus Portugal, finishing right behind them at the end of the qualifying campaign. This is going to be the third consecutive European Championship for Slovakia. Their best result is reaching the Round of 16 in 2016. Last edition saw them failing to advance to the knockout stage. Slovakia have won both of their recent friendly games against San Marino (4:0) and Wales (4:0).

 

  • Slovakia have lost only 2 out of their last 11 official games (7 wins and 2 draws).
  • At least 3 goals have been scored in 4 out of the last 5 Euro qualifying games Slovakia have played.
  • Slovakia have scored at least 2 goals in 4 out of their last 5 UEFA Euro qualifying games. 

Belgium vs Slovakia Prediction

Belgium are losing their grip. Their leaders are over 30. The last big tournament proved that Belgium couldn’t fight for the title. They didn’t manage to advance to the 2022 FIFA World Cup knockout stage, scoring only 1 goal in their 3 games. Belgium are likely to have some problems this time too.

 

Slovakia have been improving year after year. They only lost their qualifying games versus Portugal. And their opponents only had a 1-goal lead. The opponents of Slovakia haven’t had an over 1-goal lead in the last 23 official games.

 

Betting sites claim that Belgium are the favourites. But actually they’re not that invincible.

 

Our prediction is Slovakia +1.5 at 1,60.
