Cyprus vs. Slovakia football match of FIFA Club World Cup 2022

Cyprus and Slovakia will kick off the qualifying round of the World Cup with a head-to-head confrontation, which will take place in Nicosia on March 24. We present our prediction and betting options for this meeting. Who will start the World Cup qualifying with a win?

Cyprus national football team

Cypriots have never come close to qualifying for the main draw of international competitions. The "Islanders" completed the qualification for UEFA EURO 2020 unsuccessfully, finishing fourth in Group I, where Belgium, Russia, Scotland, Kazakhstan, and San Marino also played.

Also in the UEFA Nations League, Nikos Kostenoglou's players failed to prove themselves. Two goals, one victory and one draw - these are the merits of the Cypriots in the first quartet, where they took the last place and dropped to Division D. In the last official match, the team lost to Montenegro (0:4).

Slovakia national football team

In the selection process for the European Championship, the Slovaks played in group E, where the team fought against Wales for the second position. The "tricolors" came to the finish line in third place, one point behind their direct competitor.

This failure did not knock Stefan Tarkovic's guys down, and they performed great in the playoff tournament. At the semi-final stage, Slovakia passed Ireland in a penalty shootout (1:0), and in the decisive match, the team snatched a ticket to the tournament from Northern Ireland, defeating the opponent in additional halves (2:1).

Statistics

  • In official matches, the opponents met twice - two victories for Slovakia
  • Cyprus suffered eight defeats in 10 last home matches.
  • In the previous five home matches in Cyprus, more than three goals have not been scored.
  • In the last four away matches of Slovakia a bet on "Total under (2.5) goals" played.

Our Prediction

Cyprus very poorly qualified for the European Championship and also failed in the UEFA Nations League. The "islanders" have achieved success only in those matches in which they have been opposed by an opponent of their level or below.

Slovakia has a much better squad of performers than the hosts. We believe that the guests will gain three points in this match.

As for effectiveness, we shouldn't expect a lot of goals in this match. The Cypriots are building the game from defense, and the Slovaks will be quite happy with a minimal win.

Our prediction is the victory of Slovakia with the odds of 1.96 on 1xbet.
