Slovakia go into the game on the back of a 2-1 victory over Poland on matchday one and hope to win again as they prepare for a tricky battle with Sweden on Friday.
A Szczesny own goal and a Skriniar strike were enough to seal the deal over Poland who ended the game with 10 men.
Sweden put up an excellent defensive display and were rewarded with a point against the ball dominant Spanish side. They now go into the next fixture in search of a victory.
Sweden to win fairly easily
Despite conceding a lot of possession against Spain in the previous fixture, Sweden showed promise on the attacking end.
Aleksander Isak was the main architect with his dribbling and chance creation. Against relatively weaker opponents in Slovakia, the Real Sociedad man will have less trouble going for goal.
Slovakia will have to stop the young striker to have any chance of winning the game.
Sweden are favourites to win this one, with their odds priced at 1.85 by Betway. Slovakia have their odds pinned at 4.63.
The match could bring some goals and Betway’s over 1.5 goals have been priced at 1.42.
Sweden predicted XI: Olsen, Augustinsson, Danielsson, Lindelof, Lustig, Forsberg, Ekdal, Olsson, Larsson, Isak, Berg
Slovakia predicted XI: Dubravka, Hubocan, Skriniar, Satka, Pekarik, Hromada, Kucka, Mak, Hamsik, Haraslin, Duda
