England v Slovakia Past Meetings

This will be the fifth clash between the two sides, with the Three Lions having won four of the previous fixtures and drawing the other.

They played out a hard-fought match back in September 2016 – both sides’ opener for qualification  – with Adam Lallana hitting an injury-time strike to give England a 1-0 win. Slovakia had captain Martin Skrtel dismissed in the 57th minute, but almost managed to hold out for a draw. 


England v Slovakia Stats

With victory over Malta, the Three Lions extended their unbeaten stretch in World Cup qualifying to 18 matches, winning 12 in the process.

Since losing their first two matches, Slovakia have since won their past five qualifiers, taking them into second position in the table.

England have also scored at least two goals in seven of their nine games under Gareth Southgate.

The Falcons have kept just one clean sheet in their last five matches in all competitions.


England v Slovakia Team News

Eric Dier is back for selection after serving a one-game suspension on Friday night.

Despite his questionable form, West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart still looks set to continue as Southgate’s number one, whilst Danny Welbeck could be pushing for a start after scoring off the bench against Malta.

For the away side, Trabzonspor defender Jan Durica and former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel both return after missing the Slovenia match through suspension.


Reason for England v Slovakia Bets

To say England’s game against Malta was a slow-burner would be an understatement. It took the Three Lions over 50 minutes to get the opener against one of Europe’s supposed ‘whipping boys’.

Some would say a win is a win, and statistically things are looking very positive for Southgate’s men. A positive result against Slovakia on Monday would edge them ever nearer to their goal of World Cup qualification. However, a loss would also see the in-form Slovakians leapfrog them at the top of the table.

The Falcons showed just how stubborn they can be last September, keeping England out for 90 minutes, despite being a man down. They will likely set out with the same intentions on Monday, hoping to frustrate the home side and cause unrest among fans who will have been disappointed with Friday’s showing against Malta.

Nevertheless, this England side are proving that they are capable of grinding out results, even if it doesn’t always come with great ease or confidence. For that reason, backing a home win seems the safest option for punters at 2/5 with various bookies. If recent form is anything to go by, this isn’t likely to be the most exciting of matches. Goals should be at a premium, making backing under 2.5 goals and an England win a tempting bet at 21/10 with William Hill.

September is now over, which means that backing Harry Kane as first goalscorer is a sensible betting option again. He’s England’s top scorer under Southgate with five goals- more than twice as many as any of his team-mates. He’s 3/1 as first goalscorer with Bet365.
