Group E at Euro 2024 has so much drama on heading into matchday three. All four teams have three points heading into their final group fixture and so they are all on the cusp of reaching the round of 16.  Slovakia and Romania face each other in Frankfurt on Wednesday (17:00, BBC One) with both looking to bounce back from defeats to Ukraine and Belgium respectively.

Read on for my Slovakia vs Romania bet builder tips which are valued at 20/1.

Slovakia vs Romania Odds

Romania to win

Romania caught everyone's attention with their convincing 3-0 win over Ukraine on matchday one but they could not match the same feat against Belgium last weekend. The Tricolours are still top of the group, however, and are in a strong position to progress to the next round.

I am expecting to see a striking performance against Slovakia, similar to that which we saw against Ukraine. Simply put, if that Romania turns up, then I don't think Slovakia have a chance. Slovakia have of course had their moments so far. Their win over Belgium was impressive on paper, but in reality they were quite fortunate.

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku was denied an equaliser twice by VAR, as well as squandering several other chances at goal. Slovakia's approach is to be compact and strike on the break. If Romania move the ball as quickly and sharply, like they did against Ukraine, then the Falcons will be in for a whole host of problems.

Given what is on the line here, I think that this could end up being a tight contest, but I'm still convinced that Romania will prevail here and book their place in the last 16.

Euro 2024 Odds

Over 2.5 goals

Adding to that last point about viewing this as a tight contest, I have gone for over 2.5 goals because I can envisage Romania winning the match 2-1. It is also worth noting that both sides have been involved in at least one game so far that has produced three goals.

For Slovakia, it was last time out when they lost 2-1 to Ukraine, and for Romania, it was their 3-0 win against the Blue and Yellows. I think this game will be 2-1 but it could also be a 3-0 to Romania again, if we get another high-quality display from them.

The high stakes will see this game played like a knockout match and I don't think there will be a shortage of goals.

Dennis Man and Ivan Schranz 1+ shots on target

I am a big fan of including player stats in bet builders because they make following the game more interesting. I have gone for Dennis Man and Ivan Schranz to have at least one shot on target each for Romania and Slovakia respectively.

Man has been a key figure for the Tricolours at the Euros so far and I suspect this will continue on Wednesday. The winger has mainly been a creator in Germany with two assists, but he is looking to grab his first goal.

The Romanian star has already had four shots at goal this tournament and three of them were on target. Interestingly, those are the same figures for Slovakia attacker Schranz, but he has provided two goals, the only two goals Slovakia have scored I might add.

There is no better standout candidate among the Falcons' ranks to select for this market, and I am sure he will have at least one decent goalscoring opportunity in Frankfurt.
