Slovenia vs Serbia Tips and Prediction
Slovenia is the only team in League B Group 4 that has failed to win after three games, however they did get their first point against Norway on Thursday.Angers centre-back Miha Blazic was sent off for a late challenge on Erling Braut Haaland in the 63rd minute, but Matjaz Kek’s side held on for a goalless draw in Oslo.
Slovenia is currently last in their group, two points behind Sweden in third place and five points behind Sunday’s opponents Serbia, placing them in danger of relegation to the third level after gaining promotion the previous season.
Slovenia, which is ranked 65th in the FIFA world rankings, has a mixed head-to-head record against Serbia, having won, drawn, and lost one game apiece. Their lone victory came in a European Championship qualification on home soil in October 2011, when they won 1-0.
Kek will be pleased with his team’s defensive improvements against Norway after surrendering four against Serbia last week, including three in the final 34 minutes, though keeping out a Serbia side that has scored in 10 of their past 12 internationals could prove difficult.
Serbia had won back-to-back games against Slovenia and Sweden following losing 1-0 to Norway in their first Nations League match.
Aleksandar Mitrovic, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Nemanja Radonjic, and Luka Jovic all scored in the comfortable win over Slovenia, before the latter scored the game’s only goal in a 1-0 victory over Sweden in Stockholm on Thursday.
Dragan Stojkovic’s team now has the same number of points as they did in their previous Nations League campaign after three games, and they are only one point behind group leaders Norway.
Serbia has won four of their previous five away internationals, keeping three clean sheets in the process, and they travel to Ljubljana on Sunday with high spirits.
With one eye on the 2022 World Cup later this year, Stojkovic’s men will be looking to impress in their final encounter before heading to Qatar to keep their spots in the senior squad.
The visitors were clinical against the hosts in their last meeting, and they should have no trouble getting all three points in Ljubljana.
