Slovakia will be aiming for another victory when they take on Ukraine in their upcoming Euro 2024 Group E match at the Dusseldorf Arena.

Despite being the underdogs in the group, Slovakia surprised everyone with a 1-0 win over Belgium in their tournament opener, ending Belgium’s 15-game unbeaten streak.

It will be interesting to see if they can continue their winning momentum against Ukraine, who are still seeking their first points in the tournament after a tough loss to Romania.

The Falcons will be looking to replicate their solid defensive performance and secure another positive result in this crucial match.

It would be a surprise to see Calzona make any changes to the side that started the win over Belgium.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Milan Skriniar will wear the captain’s armband, with the centre-back set to be joined in a back four by David Hancko, Denis Vavro, and Slovakia’s second-highest appearance holder Peter Pekarik.

After making his major tournament debut on Monday, Boavista’s Robert Bozenik will continue to spearhead the Slovakia attack, and the 24-year-old will be hoping to add to the seven goals he has scored for his country.

Meanwhile, Ukraine will assess Vitaliy Mykolenko’s fitness after the Everton defender was forced to miss the opening game with a foot injury he sustained in the warm-up match against Moldova.

Rebrov could be tempted to freshen up his midfield, with Ruslan Malinovskyi in contention to start the second group match.

The match will kick off at 1:00pm local time.

Slovakia possible starting lineup:
Dubravka,Pekarik, Vavro, Skriniar, Hancko, Kucka, Lobotka, Duda, Schranz, Haraslin, Bozenik

Ukraine possible starting lineup:
Lunin, Konoplya, Zabarnyi, Matvienko, Zincheko, Sudakov, Stepanenko, Malinovskyi,Tsygankov, Mudryk, Dovbyk
