Recent History

Slovakia and Paraguay World Cup form

Slovakia 1-1 New Zealand
50m Robert Vittek (Slo)
90m Winston Reid (NZ)

WCI Rating: 5.0
1st half: 2.5
2nd half: 2.5

Steady down back against the Kiwis and showed plenty of pace through the middle but they conceded a goal with just seconds left and they did not create many chances to score.

Paraguay 1-1 Italy
39m Antolin Alcaraz (Par)
63m Daniele De Ross (Ita)

WCI Rating: 7.5
1st half: 3.5
2nd half: 4.0

Kept the Italians at bay for most of the game with a well organised defence and showed why they qualified so highly in a tough South American group.

Slovakia vs Paraguay Preview

Slovakia should have had 3 points from their first game and missed a golden opportunity to head the group.

Now they are going to have to beat either Paraguay or Italy to try and get through to the knockout rounds which will be a tough ask.

Paraguay played some solid football against a fairly capable Italy side and they will appreciate dropping back to an inferior side than the Italians.

Slovakia vs Paraguay Match Prediction

Slovakia will no doubt perform better here than their first match and they should be able to test Paraguay somewhat, but we don’t think it will be enough to beat Paraguay on the game they brought to the field against Italy.

South American teams are leading the way at this tournament and Slovakia do not have a great record against teams from that continent and we will happily take $2.00 plus on Paraguay to win.
