On Sunday, 16 June, Slovenia hosts Denmark in the first match of the 2024 UEFA European Championship group stage at the Stuttgart Arena. This is the first match at Euro 2024 for both teams.

The Slovenian national football team

The Slovenes intend to leave the group for the Euros. Matjaž Kek’s team already has previous experience of performing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, when the Balkans left the group stage. This time, the team intends to play differently.

In their last six matches in all competitions, Slovenia won five and lost one. During this period, they have scored 15 and conceded five, scoring first in five of the six meetings. Most of their goals (10) were scored in the first half, while their opponents scored twice in the first 45 minutes.

Danish national football team

Denmark last played at the continental level at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Back then, the “red and white” (De Rød-Hvide) crashed out in the group stage.

The team won the last meeting with the Slovenes, winning 2-1 in the European Championship qualifying round match at the Parken last season. Joakim Megle opened the scoring in the 26th minute. Thomas Delaney also scored a goal. Eric Janza scored for the Slovenian team in the 30th minute.flag denmark

Denmark have won five and lost one of their last six matches. They have scored 12 goals and conceded five during this period, with five of the six matches coming on the front foot. The majority of their goals (seven) have come in the first half, while their opponents have scored just one before the break.

Slovenia – Denmark prediction

The Slovenes are not outsiders in the group. The Balkan team is quite successful in attack.

The Danish national team is obviously the favourite. The team is capable of winning the Euros. The first match will demonstrate how possible it is.
