So, they will need all the confidence they can get from these upcoming friendlies to help them boost their chances of advancing, but Armenia are certainly no slouches.

Slovenia vs Armenia prediction: Euro 2024 participants to put on a show

Key stats

  • Slovenia have lost just once in 10 games
  • Armenia are now winless in eight matches
  • Matjaž Kek's side won and kept a clean sheet against Portugal the last time they took to the field

Pre-game odds and win probability: Home side expected to blow away their opponents

  • Home: 7/20 (1.35) – 74.1%
  • Draw: 4/1 (5.0) – 20%
  • Away: 15/2 (8.5) – 11.8%

Given that Armenia are only just ranked inside the top 100 of FIFA's rankings, it should come as no surprise that they are massive underdogs for this friendly encounter. Slovenia are in red-hot form and will be confident of picking up another confidence-boosting victory.

We can only see this match going one way with a Slovenia win, but to make it a bit more interesting we'd punt on a -1 handicap, although you can find plenty of other options on our free betting tips page.

Last five H2Hs: No history to look back on

This will be the very first time that Slovenia have faced off against Armenia. Therefore, we have no history or form to look back on and instead just have to take their recent runs into account and that is worrying for the away team.

Slovenia preview: Routine win is on the cards

Slovenia have a very promising squad hearing into Euro 2024 with their attack spearheaded by one of the top young strikers in European football – Benjamin Sesko – and this game should prove to be a valuable bit of game time for them to sharpen up.

Predicted lineup: Oblak (GK), Karnicnik, Blazic, Bijol, Janza, Stojanovic, Cerin, Elsnik, Lovric, Sporar, Sesko

Slovenian striker Benjamin Sesko

Player to watch: Benjamin Sesko

Slovenia's young striker is being watched by several top European clubs ahead of this summer's transfer window and a good performance at Euro 2024 will certainly do his stock no harm at all. The talented finisher netted 14 goals for RB Leipzig in the summer and will be one to keep an eye on this game.

His natural ability is clear to see

Sesko's form for Slovenia has been equally as impressive as it has been in Germany this season. He's now registered 17 goal involvements in just 28 appearances for his country and can already be relied upon in key moments despite his tender age.
