On Friday, June 16, 2023 Finland will compete against Slovenia in the 3rd round of the Euro Qualifying match. Watch here, Finland vs Slovenia live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Finland started their Euro 2024 campaign with a 1-3 loss to Denmark. But the away match in Northern Ireland gave great hope to the national team. Thanks to a single goal by B.Kallman, Finland won a narrow 1-0 win over Northern Ireland and still has the chance to compete in the next round.
Currently Finland, who are fourth in Group H, will be looking to pick up two straight wins for the first time since November 2021 and strengthen their claim for a place in Germany. But the minimum target for coach M. Kanerva and his team is to get at least 1 point in the third round of the Euro 2024 qualifying group phase against Slovenia.
Meanwhile, Slovenia maintained their perfect record in qualifying, beating San Marino 2-0 at the Stozice Stadium in the last game and Kazakhstan. This shows that the visitors are not an easy opponent to deal with.
In addition, the failure of Denmark – the strongest team in Group H – became an opportunity for Slovenia. Currently, coach Matjaz Kek’s team is currently leading the standings. However, the upcoming away game will definitely be difficult for Slovenia. They will be very happy if they can get 1 point in the upcoming match.
Denmark’s defeat to Kazakhstan made the competition in Group H even more exciting. Slovenia will have the chance to challenge for the top of the table in the next round if they win over Finland.
Conversely, if the home team wins, they will increase their chances of competing. However, the two teams have relatively balanced strengths and it is difficult to predict the winner. Therefore, Slovenia and Finland will probably be satisfied if they get 1 point each.
According to Asia, in order to maximize home advantage, the Finnish national team will try to control the game from the start. Despite the fact that the Slovenian national team is dominating more, a win is exactly what the home team really needs to make the next round more interesting.
On the other hand, Slovenia also came with the intention of winning in order to continue leading Group H. However, this process can make it easy for them to make mistakes. By capitalizing on their lead at every moment of the match, a draw was probably the most likely thing in both the first half and the end of the match.
As information, this is the third meeting between the two teams, with the first being in April 1999, where a 1-1 draw was created. The two teams met in a friendly at the Veritas Stadium in August 2013, with Finland winning 2-0 away.
