Russia and Slovakia national teams face one another in their second match of the competition. The game take place in Lille at Stade Pierre Mauroy on Wednesday, June 15.
Russia national team failed to resist England in their first match of the tournament but late equalizer from a set-piece got the team 1-1 draws against England. Russia showed disappointing level of football and spent most of the time denying opponents efforts. Russia scored their goal from the second attempt on goal on the second minute of added time with brilliant header of their captain. Russia’s keeper Akinfeev was the only one who showed his skills in the match and it’s still uncertain what their offense is capable of as we have seen almost no attacks in this from Russia.

Slovakia were on eight-match undefeated run before the start of the competition that included five wins and three draws. However, the opening match against Wales turned out to 1-2 defeat despite possession in that game. Decisive goal was scored after bitter mistake in defense. On top of that, the leader of the team Marek Hamsik didn’t showed his best skills and it reduced Slovakia attacking potential greatly.
The opponents met six times in their history. Slovakia were stronger once, three matches ended with draws and twice Russia celebrated a victory. Russia scored four goals in these six matches and Slovakia replied with three. Considering the head-to-head record between opponents and their first matches at the tournament, when teams failed to show attacking football, we can expect the opponents to combine small number of goals
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
