Slovenia will host Austria in a match at the Stadion Stozice
We are heading to Group G of the European qualifiers, because on Sunday Slovenia will host Austria in a match at the Stadion Stozice in the capital Ljublijana. Let’s discuss this fixture during our usual football prediction tips for the day.
The situation in this group is really intense, because right now four teams are separated by just 5 points. Austria are second in the group with 13 points won so far, but Slovenia are really close, being 4th with 11 points. In other words, many things could change in this group after Sunday.
Austria could be close to a pretty rare qualification for a big international event. The manager Franco Foda is doing a solid work with this team, because right now Austria have a record of four wins, one draw and two losses in the group. This gives the Austrians a chance to reach the Euro 2020.
Few days ago Austria recorded a fourth win in the group, beating Israel with 3-1 at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Wien. A curious fact is that the Israeli team is managed by the Austrian legend Andres Herzog.
Eran Zahavi opened the score for Israel, but Valentino Lazaro equalised for the hosts. In the second half the Austrians finished the job, thanks to the goals of Martin Hinteregger and Marcel Sabitzer.
Slovenia are approaching this game, knowing very well that a win on Sunday could take them to second place in the group. This is a big motivation for them.
The Slovenian team will try to react to the 1-2 loss they suffered during the visit to North Macedonia on Thursday. Napoli’s Eljiff Elmas knocked out the visitors with two goals for the Macedonians, while Josip Ilicic’ goal from a penalty kick arrived too late for Slovenia.
That’s our football prediction tips for the European qualifier between Slovenia and Austria from Group G. It’s going to be a tough game for both teams, that’s what we can say about it.
