Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Top position in Group H will be at stake when Denmark and Slovenia lock horns at Parken Stadium in a highly-anticipated Euro 2024 qualifier. The Danes are eyeing their fifth consecutive group win, but they will have to showcase their worth on the field against the in-form Slovenians. Celtic ace Matt O’Riley has been handed a call-up despite having been omitted from the original list, while both Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund have been ruled out with injuries.
Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. The visitors, on the other hand, are leading the chase for automatic qualification, but seeing that Denmark have turned Parken Stadium into a real fortress, home win should be considered. Key Slovenia attacker Andraz Sporar must be very cautious as the Panathinaikos man is only one yellow card away from suspension.
Highlighted Player (Christian Eriksen):
Christian Eriksen born on 14th of February 1992 is a Danish football who plays as a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen played in the youth of Odense BK and Ajax Amsterdam where he got picked up by Tottenham Hotspur after 3 seasons.
On 29th of August Eriksen got transferred for 13 million euro and is one of the most expensive Danish football players of all time. Christian Eriksen made his debut in March 2010 for the Danish national team and was the youngest player during the World Cup in 2010.
So far Eriksen played for over 200 club games for Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen is known for his great passing skills and game overview. In his career Eriksen managed to become national champion with Ajax 3 times and won several individual prices for being one of the most talented player of the moment.
Highlighted Team (Slovenia):
Slovenia have been competing on the international stage following the split of Yugoslavia in 1991. The Slovenians were outclassed by France in their first unofficial match (0-5), whilst they shared the spoils with Estonia in their first official game (1-1).
The former Yugoslav republic participated at three major football tournaments, with the team making it to the FIFA World Cup finals in Japan and South Korea (2002) and South Africa 2010, whilst booking their place at the Euro 2000 which was hosted by Netherlands and Belgium. Slovenia, though, have yet to make it to the knockout stages of the major tournament and that remains their unfulfilled dream.
Srecko Katanec and Zlatko Zahovic are regarded as the most famous footballers who played for the Slovenian national football team and they were part of Slovenia’s “Golden generation”. The Slovenians, who recorded their biggest win against Oman in 1999, welcome their rivals at Ljudski vrt in Stozice and the capacity of the venue is 12.702.
