Trailing the Slovenians by four points, Northern Ireland find themselves second from bottom in Group H after winning just one of their four matches.

Slovenia enjoyed an ideal start to their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, securing succesive victories over Kazakhstan and San Marino, but Matjaz Kek’s side have managed to take just one point from a possible six since then.

Following a 2-0 defeat to Finland back in June, Slovenia played out a 1-1 draw with Denmark in their subsequent match, despite registering two attempts on target while seeing just 37% of the ball on home soil.

As a result, Kek’s side find themselves fourth in Group H, level on points with third-placed Denmark and two points behind Finland and Kazakhstan, who have both won three of their four qualifiers.

Slovenia have only made one European Championship appearance over the years, featuring at Euro 2000 in the Netherlands and Belgium, with the former Yugoslav nation failing to qualify for each of the previous five editions of the competition.

That said, Slovenia have suffered a single defeat in their last 10 matches across all competitions, picking up five wins and four draws in the process, so they will back themselves to reach next summer’s tournament in Germany.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland began their qualifying campaign with a routine 2-0 victory over San Marino, through a brace from Bolton Wanderers forward Dion Charles, but it has been all downhill since then.

The Green and White Army head into their fifth qualifier on the back of three successive 1-0 defeats, having lost to Finland, Denmark and Kazakhstan without scoring a single goal.

As a result, Michael O’Neill’s side sit second from bottom in Group H after four matches, meaning that Northern Ireland already trail the joint leaders – Finland and Kazakhstan – by six points.

Not only have Northern Ireland lost each of their last three matches, but they have also lost seven of their previous 11, so they will need to turn things around quickly if they want to reach their second European Championship.
