Slovakia’s rival will be the Slovenian team. Several hundred police officers will monitor the security situation before, during, and after the match, said the deputy spokesperson of the Bratislava Police, František Peczár.

The measures will include available water cannon, mounted police, and the police dog unit. The streets around the stadium in Tehelné pole will be closed during the match. SITA
