For this Monday we have Slovenia vs Israel prediction for round 6 of Euro 2020 Qualifying Group G. Slovenia will play at home in a match where teams are fighting directly for the standings.
Slovenia comes from a match where they were not favo
Thus, it can be said that this is a match of a balanced group. The two teams add up to 8 points and are 2nd and 3rd places with advantage to Slovenia. Thus, the direct confrontation between the squads plays a fundamental role in deciding the vacancy.
Slovenia has played a good game against Poland. While many found it challenging to face the Polish team and get a victory, the team controlled the game well and got the score 2 × 0. Thus, it remained in the fight for the qualification.
In the match, despite not being able to have more possession, the team shot more and prevented the Poles from completing their plays, thus allowed only one shot on goal. The group presents a compact defence playing in 4-4-2.
Therefore, in Slovenia, we have few goals in total. In fact, in the last 5 games, there was only a match where we had more than 2.5 goals, this being the match against Latvia where they scored by 5 × 0.
In this case, the team adds 8 points in its group with 5 games, having scored 9 goals and conceded 3. Thus, it is in the third position of the group.
Even though they have controlled the game and dictated the pace, the Israeli squad comes from a 1-1 draw for Northern Macedonia. In fact, the team took a long time to find the path of the attack getting the game stuck in midfield during the first stage.
In addition to this draw, in their penultimate game was defeated by 4 × 0 by Poland in an away match. On this occasion, the Polish team turned 100% of their shots into goals. Possession of the ball was balanced in numbers, but poor quality by Israel.
Thus, one characteristic of the team is to allow opponents to attack from the wings, granting many corner-kicks and having to face a fast game.
The team adds 8 points in the group in 5 games. In the case, scored 9 goals and conceded 8, is in the fourth position in the group.
The two teams met in May for the same competition. In this case, the final score was a 1 × 1 draw with Israel playing at home. Despite the equality on the scoreboard, Slovenia’s team played better and deserved to have come out with the victory.
Both teams compete directly for one of the group’s two openings. Thus, to achieve the classification is essential the victory in direct confrontation. Since they are tied for points, this is the opportunity to take advantage.
In recent games, Slovenia has shown better football and enter as a slight favourite on the pitch. Indeed, the victory over Poland certainly increased the confidence of the players. On the other hand, the Israeli team’s confidence was shaken by their draw with Northern Macedonia.
Slovenia is likely to continue its defensive consistency, which will give Israel little opportunity. The visitor, however, has a weak attack. Thus we have a match with the tendency of fewer goals.
