Germany and Slovakia national teams face one another in the round of last 16 of European Championship 2016. The match will be played in Lille at Stade Pierre Mauroy on Sunday, June 26th.
Germany won their group without showing their best football, taking two wins over Ukraine, 2-0 and Northern Ireland, 1-0. Clash with Poland ended with 0-0 draw as this result suited both sides. Joachim Lew’s team haven’t used their full strength in group stage matches but they always had possession and pressed their opponents into their halves of the pitch. The last match against Northern Ireland ended with 26 shots taken by Germany. We can expect the team to stay determined in playoffs match and show their best football against tough Slovakia team.

Slovakia national team show quite inconsistent results in the tournament. They showed their best football at the tournament in match against Wales that they lost 1-2. Match against Russia wasn’t the best performance of the team but it gained them three points. Scoreless draw with England was another average performance of the team and England should feel robbed as Slovakia didn’t create anything in front of opponents’ goal.
The opponents met four times in their history and both teams recorded two wins each with 7-7 goal difference. The last time the team met in the end of May when Slovakia won 3-1. However, Joachim Lew doesn’t experiment in matches of Euro 2016 and his team show solid football that is of much higher level that they showed in friendlies. We can expect Germany to revenge previous defeats and advance confidently for the next round.
Prediction for the match: Germany to win.
