The highly anticipated Euro 2024 clash between Slovakia and Ukraine is set to take place on June 21, 2024, at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf.

Both teams have had contrasting starts to their campaigns, and this match will be crucial for their aspirations in the tournament. Here’s a comprehensive look at the predicted lineups and key insights for both teams.

Slovakia's Predicted Lineup

Key Players and Formation

Slovakia, buoyed by their surprise victory over Belgium, are likely to maintain their winning lineup.

Head coach Francesco Calzona will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation to maximise both defensive solidity and attacking potential.

Recent Performance

Slovakia's recent form has been impressive, particularly their strong defensive record, with clean sheets in their last three matches.

The team’s morale is high following their 1-0 win over Belgium, where they demonstrated fantastic resilience and tactical discipline.

Predicted XI

Goalkeeper: Martin Dubravka

Defenders: Peter Pekarik, Denis Vavro, Milan Skriniar, David Hancko

Midfielders: Juraj Kucka, Stanislav Lobotka, Ondrej Duda

Forwards: Ivan Schranz, Lukas Haraslin, Robert Bozenik

Ukraine's Predicted Lineup

Key Players and Formation

Ukraine, under the guidance of Serhiy Rebrov, will be looking to bounce back after their 3-0 defeat to Romania.

Rebrov might tweak his lineup and formation, likely favouring a 4-3-3 setup to harness their attacking prowess.

Recent Performance

Ukraine's opening game was a disappointment, particularly given their dominant possession (over 70%) which failed to translate into effective attacking opportunities.

They will need to sharpen their offensive strategies and ensure their key players, like Mykhailo Mudryk and Artem Dovbyk, are more impactful.

Predicted XI

Goalkeeper: Andriy Lunin

Defenders: Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykola Matvienko, Illia Zabarnyi, Oleksandr Konoplya

Midfielders: Ruslan Malinovskyi, Taras Stepanenko, Heorhiy Sudakov

Forwards: Viktor Tsygankov, Mykhailo Mudryk, Artem Dovbyk
