11/09/2023 9:45 pm
Slovakia will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Portugal when they continue their Euro 2024 qualification campaign at home to Liechtenstein on Monday night.
The hosts are currently second in Group J, boasting 10 points from their five matches, while Liechtenstein are bottong of the section on zero points from their opening five games.
Slovakia gave a strong account of themselves in Friday’s contest against Portugal, but a first-half goal from Bruno Fernandes proved to be the difference between the two sides.
The 1-0 defeat to Portugal was a setback, especially as Slovakia will head to the group leaders on October 13, which demonstrates the importance of picking up all three points on Monday.
As expected, Liechtenstein have struggled to make their maek in the group, losing each of their five matches, scoring just once and conceding 16 times.
Liechtenstein were beaten 4-0 by Portugal in their group opener before conceding seven at home to Iceland on March 26, but there has been improvement in recent matches, only losing 2-0 to Luxembourg, 1-0 to Slovakia and 2-1 away to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday.
Konrad Funfstuck became head coach of the national team at the start of June, and while he has lost all three of his matches in charge, there have been clear steps forward under his management.
The Blue-Reds have lost each of their last 18 matches across all competitions, while they have not been victorious since a 2-1 victory over Luxembourg in a friendly in October 2020.
