Slovenia to Win
Following their impressive 1-0 win over Croatia, Slovenia have struggled to give a good account of their abilities. They suffered successive away defeats to Russia and Cyprus, and could only manage a 1-1 draw with North Macedonia. However, Matjaz Kek will feel good about his side's chances against Gibraltar, who conceded 11 goals in their last two outings. The hosts are outright favourites to secure the win in this fixture and Gibraltar's form does not inspire any confidence.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
With just three goals to their names in four fixtures, doubts would have crept in the Slovenian dugout. While they have kept the damage to a minimum at the back, the attackers have struggled to make their mark. The likes of Josip Ilicic and Andraz Sporar have the chance to right that wrong as they welcome Gibraltar to the Bonifika. Los Llanis were taken to the cleaners in their recent outings, losing 0-7 to Netherlands and 4-1 to Montenegro. Before that, it was another goal extravaganza as Norway secured a 3-0 win. With rivals scoring goals for fun against the European minnows, goals should be aplenty as they travel to Koper.
Both Teams to Score: No
Usually, goals from both sides ensure that the Over 2.5 prediction comes true. But based on Gibraltar's recent form, Slovenia should be able to manage it all on its own. It is keeping a clean sheet that Jan Oblak and co. will be more worried about. They have only conceded four goals in their last six outings, keeping tougher European rivals at arm's length of their goal. Moreover, Gibraltar's recent form does not inspire confidence, with just two goals scored in six matches.
Slovenia vs Gibraltar: Team News and Match Preview
After defeating Croatia in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Slovenian fans would have hoped for their run of nine matches unbeaten to continue. Nothing has gone according to their ambitions, suffering two defeats and the ignominy of one draw in their following three fixtures. Matjaz Kek needs to address their slide or else it will be a long drawn summer for the Slovenian faithful. Jan Oblak has continued to impress at the back with his superb command of the area, and similar performances are expected of Josip Ilicic of Atalanta fame.
Minnows always are at the wrong end of the bargain in international meetings. Winless in six fixtures, Gibraltar will attest to this. However, this does not absolve Julio César Ribas of his responsibilities, especially after their draws to San Marino and Lichtenstein. Los Llanis will have a difficult time matching the start power of their rivals, with Lincoln defender Scott Wiseman their highest-profile squad member. However, at the age of 35, it looks unlikely that the Kingston upon Hull-born player can have an impact on the final result.
