Preview: Slovenia vs. Denmark

Denmark will attempt to claim back-to-back victories when they travel to Ljubljana to face Slovenia on Monday.

Meanwhile, the hosts will be looking to return to winning ways after losing 2-0 in Friday’s away meeting with Finland.

Slovenia began Euro 2024 qualifying with consecutive wins over Kazakhstan and San Marino, but they were stopped in their tracks by Finland in Helsinki.

Goals from Joel Pohjanpalo and Oliver Antman condemned Slovenia to a 2-0 defeat, bringing an end to their eight-game unbeaten run.

With Slovenia currently sitting on six points alongside Denmark, Finland and Kazakhstan, Group H is promising to go all the way to the wire.

Slovenia are hoping to qualify for the European Championships for the first time since 2000, and they will look to get their campaign back on track in Friday’s contest.

Denmark will provide Matjaz Kek’s side with a tough test, but they can take confidence from the fact that they have won their last three home internationals.

Like their hosts, Denmark have also experienced a mixed start to their qualifying campaign, which began with a routine 3-1 win over Finland.

However, Kasper Hjulmand’s side suffered a surprise defeat on matchday two, giving up a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 away to Kazakhstan.

Denmark had three months to mull over that defeat, but they bounced back on Friday with a narrow home win over Northern Ireland.

Jonas Wind opened the scoring in the 47th minute, and although Northern Ireland had the ball in the net in stoppage time, a VAR review determined that there was an offside infringement, ensuring that Denmark could celebrate a 1-0 win.

They will now face Slovenia for the first time since February 2008, and after winning their previous four games against Monday’s opponents, they will be confident about their chances of clinching all three points on Monday.
