The French youth team will try to strengthen their position in the Euro qualifier against Slovakia on 12 October. Should it be a rout? – the answer is in our forecast.
Sylvain Ripoll’s charges have not yet guaranteed themselves the right to play at the Euro. The team, after seven games played, is in the second position of group 2. The French national team has eighteen points scored.
Now the French have gained a great move, having won three victories in a row: having beaten the Georgians (2: 0), the Azerbaijani national team (2: 1) and Liechtenstein (5: 0).
Jaroslav Kentos’ charges will try to create problems for the French after an extremely unpleasant home defeat from them with a score (3: 5). The Slovaks have no chance to qualify for the European Championship. Now the team is in third position in the group. The Slovak national team has nine points scored.
The main problem of the team is in defense. Eighteen goals conceded in seven games is a lot.
Teams have met each other four times in history. Three victories on the account of the French and one more meeting ended with the victory of the Slovaks
French won their last 5 home games in a row
Slovaks have lost twice in their last ten away games by more than two goals
10/15/19 Slovakia U21 France U21 3: 5
The bookmakers believe that the French national team is the favorite . We have no doubt about that. The task of the French is to score three points in order to bring themselves closer to the main goal – the opportunity to play on the Euro. We expect that the guests will aim to give a serious fight to their rival for a home defeat.
There is a feeling that the guests will be able to avoid a major loss, since the level of the teams is not yet too different for the hosts to be able to get a crushing victory.
Our prediction is the victory of the Slovakian national team, taking into account the handicap (+2.5) and we bet on this on the Fonbet line with the odds of 1.60
