Odds: 4/9 @ Pribet

Two sides who have their sights set on clinching a top-two finish in Group H this year, Slovenia will welcome Finland to Ljubljana on Saturday evening.

Starting with the hosts, signing off September’s international break with what was a routine 4-0 romp against Group H whipping boys San Marino, Slovenia have continued to gain a string of plaudits during their European Championship qualifying adventure. With their recent turn in fortunes highlighted by an action-packed 4-2 victory against Northern Ireland last month, Marjaz Kek will be desperate for his side to claim what could be a defining win this weekend. Opening their Group H campaign with an eye-catching 2-1 win away at Kazakhstan on March 26th, Slovenia have mustered 12 points from their six qualifying appearances. Marking their return on Saturday evening sat at the top of the table, the Whites have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous 12 straight contests across all formats – a run that stems all the way back to a 4-1 loss against Serbia 16 months ago. Along with notching a quartet of goals in their back-to-back qualifying showdowns last month, it should also be noted that Slovenia have seen each of their six Group H outings finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, watching their remarkable Group H flurry come to an abrupt end last month as they eventually suffered a 1-0 loss at home against Denmark, Finland are seeking an immediate response here. Nevertheless, still collecting 12 points from their last five qualifying appearances and with the mood in their camp at a continued high, Markku Kanerva’s side will be excited by their most recent meeting against Slovenia. Putting in a hugely impressive performance back on June 16th as they claimed an impressive 2-0 victory on home soil, the Eagle-Owls have also caught the eye with their recent improvements outside of Helsinki. Securing back-to-back Group H victories on foreign soil, maximum points on Saturday evening would see them skyrocket into the top-two. Unbeaten in each of their three historic showdowns against Slovenia, neutrals could be treated to an enjoyable affair here. It is worth highlighting, with Finland seeing seven of their last nine contests on foreign soil finish with over 1.5 goals, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.
