England will be at home as they host Slovakia at Wembley on Monday evening in a 2018 World Cup qualifier Group F meeting.

The Three Lions defeated Malta 4-0 last Friday but it was a poor performance from them as they needed the last half hour of the game before they could score. England top Group F and a win at (1.38) with Bet9ja would put them within touching distance of making it to Russia.

Jan Kozak’s side narrowly defeated Slovenia 1-0 to remain in second place, two points behind their hosts. Slovakia are four points clear of Scotland but will have eyes on trying to topple England from top spot which they can achieve with a win at a massive (9.00).

A draw is quoted at (4.50) with the same firm.

England have met Slovakia five times, wining four, drawing one and losing none. This makes them poised to avoid defeat at odds of (1.04).

Gareth Southgate’s charges have won their last 12 qualifiers at home, keeping clean sheets in 10 of them including the last six. Backing them to win to nil is available at (1.96).

Since England could only draw at halftime against Malta before winning at the final whistle, punters strongly convinced that such outcome could repeat itself have odds of (4.05) to play with.

The 1966 world champions have won 12 of their last qualifiers by two or more goals. The reverse fixture however ended 1-0 and Bet9ja offers odds of (1.78) for no more than two goals at Wembley.
