Slovakia – Iceland: Recent form, team news, and probable lineups

Here is a more detailed look at the latest news and updates on both teams, along with the most likely Slovakia vs Iceland lineups:

Slovakia

One win in the remaining two rounds of Euro 2024 Qualifiers would secure Slovakia a place in the main draw, but even one point from these games would do the trick unless Luxembourg pulls off a huge miracle and wins their two games with a double-digits goal difference. In any case, Slovakia have a great chance to qualify for their third Euro in a row. Slovakia will be without injured Matus Bero and Adam Zrelak in this international window.

Slovakia predicted lineup:

Dubravka – Pekarik, Skriniar, Vavro, Hancko – Lobotka, Duda, Kucka – Schranz, Haraslin, Bozenik

Iceland

If they want to stay in contention for Euro 2024, Iceland have to beat Slovakia in this match, but they would also have to win their last-round duel against Portugal and for Slovakia to lose to Bosnia as well. So, it is highly unlikely that we will see the small Scandinavian nation at the main stage this time around. When it comes to team news, Iceland are missing Gylfi Sigurdsson, Mikael Anderson, and Hordur Magnusson through injuries.

Iceland predicted lineup:

Vasilj – Dedic, Kovacevic, Hadzikadunic, Gazibegovic – Cimirot, Hadziahmetovic, Krunic – Demirovic, Stevanovic, Prevljak

Player to watch: David Hancko

The 25-year old Feyenoord defender has been one of the best performers for Slovakia in these Qualifiers and not just his contributions on the defensive end. In fact, Hancko also contributed to 4 of 11 goals that Slovakia scored by scoring twice himself and adding a couple of assists.
