Slovenia News and Form – Can Slovenia upset Austria?

There was a bit of damage done to Slovenia’s qualification hopes on Thursday. They lost 2-1 in Skopje against North Macedonia. That was a blow because it pushed them out of the top two and now they have some chasing to do. Slovenia’s goal in that defeat came in the 95th minute from the penalty spot. So they are trailing Austria, who moved up to second, by two points. So now comes that thin line where a loss will probably demolish their chances of automatic qualification entirely.

It is a W3 D2 L2 record that Slovenia have picked up in their seven qualification games in the group. They have averaged almost two goals per game, which hasn’t been a bad return. The positive is that they have their fate in their own hands to a degree because a win here will move them back above Austria. They have a bit of home form, not having lost any of their last five in Ljubljana. Their notable home result in this campaign saw them take a 2-0 win over group leaders Poland.

Austria News and Form – Will Austria secure three points in Slovenia?

The Austrians cantered to a 3-1 home win over Israel on Thursday and that was a big boost for their qualification hopes. It gave them a second place on the night. If they get three points against Slovenia then they will be almost across the finish line in reaching Euro 2020. Austria are undefeated in their last five qualifiers, picking up a win in four of those. It’s been a good response as they lost their first two matches in the group.

Their defence has taken three clean sheets from their last five qualifiers and have only shipped two goals in that sequence of matches. Another positive for them along with their defence is there away record in European Championship qualifiers. Austria have taken a win in six of their last eight such fixtures (W1 D1) which is a superb return. The Austrians have also scored at least two goals in all but two of those last eight away games in qualifiers for the Euro’s.

Austria to win: The pressure is on Slovenia to come out and push for the victory in this contest. Their home record isn’t all that bad, but Austria’s away record in qualifiers is excellent. The visitors may just have enough to get a crucial three points in their qualification push. Away win.
