England to record another slender success

Despite being considered amongst the leading contenders for Euro 2024, England are yet to impress in Germany, with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Serbia being followed by a 1-1 draw with Denmark.

The Three Lions have started both matches well, scoring goals inside 20 minutes on each occasion, before dropping off and letting their opponents back into the contest.

Gareth Southgate’s side have adopted a defensive approach and have had a total of only seven shots on target, which ought to offer Slovenia some hope.

It is difficult to see England turning on the style with qualification already assured and backing them to prevail in another low-scoring contest appeals.

England tend to keep things tight and eight of their last ten internationals have featured three or fewer goals.

Slovenia, also in the qualification hunt for a last-16 spot, are likely to sit deep and soak up the pressure before relying on their chances on the counter-attack.

That lends itself to a low-scoring fixture – ten of their last 11 matches have featured three or fewer goals – but England’s pressure should ultimately pay off.

Corner count unlikely to go high

Southgate may opt for changes in a bid to freshen things up but it is hard to envisage a marked lift in tempo and, with goals set to be at a premium, corners could also be in short supply.

England’s opening showdown with Serbia featured only three corners, with the Three Lions registering only one, while their 1-1 draw with Denmark featured six corners with Southgate’s side registering just two.

The ball spent the majority of the time in the centre of the pitch in England’s first two assignments and with them set to dominate possession, Slovenia may struggle to create too many chances. That makes under 8.5 corners look a solid play.
