Slovakia vs Ukraine Betting Tips
The fight against relegation is what remains in the final rounds of Group 1 of League B, the Second Division of the League of Nations of Europe. This Friday, November 16, Slovakia receives Ukraine. The game, for the fifth – penultimate round will be played at the stadium Antona Malatinského in Trnava. The kickoff was scheduled for 17:45.
The Ukrainians, who reached the nine possible points, secured first place in the key and access to League A, the elite division of the tournament, which is in its inaugural edition. The Slovaks, who have not yet scored, are in the flashlight, which would bring down the League C, the Third Division. To avoid relegation they must overcome the Czech Republic, runner-up with three points.
As they lost at home to the Czechs by 2 to 1, the Slovaks will have to decide their fate away from their dominions. The game was scheduled for November 19. However, points added to Ukraine can facilitate the mission.The recent retrospect, however, is not able to give much hope to the fans. In the five most recent matches, Slovakia suffered three defeats, drawn once and only won one game.This victory, however, is not very valuable. It was against Denmark on 5 September.
The Danes at the time faced a crisis between athletes and federation. The disagreement over trade rights prompted athletes to boycott the game and the top-hatters sent a ‘catadão’, which included futsal players, just to avoid punishment.
The bad results led to the downfall of coach Stefan Tarkovic. He was replaced by Paval Hapal, who commanded sub 21 selection. He is expected to promote a cast renewal. His first call, however, indicated that the change will be slow and gradual.
No new name was among the 24 named. On the contrary. The news was on account of athletes who were being left on sides like Miroslav Stoch, Vavro and Zrelac. The available athletes for the clashes are:
Goalkeepers: Martin Dúbravka (Newcastle United), Matúš Kozáčik (FC Viktoria Plzen) and Marek Rodák (Rotherham United FC);
Defender Peter Pekarik (Hertha Berlin), Erik Sabo (Hapoel Beersheba), Martin Skrtel (Fenerbachce Istanbul), Milan Škriniar (Inter Milan), Denis Vavro (FC Copenhagen), Thomas Hubočan (Olympique Marseille) and David Hancko );
Socks: Stanislav Lobotka (Celta Vigo), Patrik Hrošovský (FC Viktoria Plzen), John Gregus (FC Copenhagen), Juraj Kucka (Trabzonspor), Matthew Bero (Vitesse), Marek Hamsik (Napoli), Ondrej Duda Rusnak (Real Salt Lake), Robert Mak (Zenit St. Petersburg), Vladimir Weiss (Al-Gharafa SC) and Miroslav Stoch (Slavia Praha);
Attackers: Adam Nemec (FC Paphos), Michal Duri W (Anorthosis Famagusta) and Adam Zreľák (1. FC Nürnberg).
After having his name inserted in history as one of the greatest athletes in the country, Andriy Shevchenko also entered the list of the best coaches of Ukraine. By defeating the Czech Republic 1-0 on Oct. 16, he not only put the team as his country in the League of Nations League of Europe with two matchdays of anticipation as he set his country’s third-most unbeaten run. There are nine games without losing (six wins and three draws).
The sequence started right before Slovakia. On November 10 last year at home, the Ukrainians made 2 to 1 in the first game after ending their failed participation in the qualifiers for the 2018 Russian World Cup.
With the goal in the League of Nations achieved, Schevchenko announced that he should use the game this Friday and the friendly against Turkey scheduled for next Tuesday, November 20, to test new players and tactical options.
The athletes who called for the matches were:
Goalkeepers: Andriy Pyatov, Denis Boyko and Andrew Lunin;
Defenders: Sergey Krivtsov, Nikolay Matvienko, Alexander Karavaev, Nikita Burda, Vasyl Kravets, Igor Plastun and Vitaliy Mikolenko;
Midfielders: Viktor Tsigankov, Taras Stepanenko, Eugene Konoplyanka, Viktor Kovalenko, Ivan Petryak, Vitaly Buyalsky, Alexander Zinchenko, Ruslan Maliovsky, Mykola Shaparenko, Yevhen Makarenko and Sergey Bolbat;

There were seven meetings involving the teams. The Ukrainians won three, there were three equalities and only a success of the Slovaks.
It is to be expected that the Ukrainians, with the guaranteed classification, will reduce their pace of competition and start to face the game this Friday as a mere friendly. Slovakia, on the other hand, has clearly acted below its odds and even without qualifying chances it should increase the intensity of its game after switching from command. Therefore, the prognosis in the victory of the owners of the house seems to be the most adequate for the confrontation.
