Cyprus - Slovakia

Asian Handicap
Pick: Slovakia -0.5
Odds: 1.85
Stake: 1

Match date: 24/03/2021

Slovakia will start their WC qualifier campaign with a match against one of the outsiders of this group. This will be e very interesting group because group H looks very much open on paper, beside Croatia who I rate as the favorite to win this group. The other teams Russia, Slovenia and Slovakia are pretty much in the same level and it will be very interesting until the end to see who will grap the second place. Then we have the other two teams of Cypress and Malta who are the outsiders.


Since being such a balanced group it will be very important not to drop any points against teams like Cypress and Malta. In this context I expect Slovakia to approach this match with maximal focus and give their best to win it. The schedule will favor Slovakia as their next match will be also against another outsider at home when they host Malta, so today I expect Slovakia to use its best men to beat Cypress.


Slovakia comes into this match in a very good morale after securing their place in this summer’s European Championships and I expect them to be determined to start off their World Cup qualification journey with a win.


On the other hand I don’t expect Cyprus to pose a threat in Group H because in last years they have been very bad and have lost eight of their last ten competitive international games in all competitions, winning just once. I was expecting odds around 1.50-1.60 for this match, but maybe due to home advantage Slovakia’s win is priced so high.


Slovakia will miss Marek Hamsik for this match, but Skriniar was allowed to join from Inter after the covid hit Inter. Nevertheless I don;t think that Hamsik’s absence will be felt too much tonight.


Normally I would have choses -0.75 AH for this match, but due to the fact that in six days there will be played three matches I am going just with Slovakia’s win which in my opinion has big value with such odds.
