England vs Slovenia Betting Preview

Slovenia has only conceded two goals so far, and England’s recent form features games with less than three goals scored. The Three Lions managed a 1-0 win on either side of a draw during the group stage of Euro 2020. Harry Kane has been prolific, netting 11 goals in his last 12 competitive matches for England. However, the pressure is mounting on England following lacklustre performances.

Pressure Mounts on England England scraped through their opener and the 1-1 draw with Denmark has only intensified scrutiny on Gareth Southgate and his squad. Post-2018 World Cup, where England reached the semi-finals amid a surge of optimism, Southgate has been keen to recapture that spirit. Their journey to the Euro 2020 final started similarly, with conservative victories and a draw in the group stages, suggesting a cautious approach might continue into their final group game against Slovenia.

Evolution, Not Revolution for England The reaction to the draw with Denmark has prompted some to call for sweeping changes. However, England needs a more disciplined defensive performance and must control the game better when ahead. The short recovery time between matches means a radical change in playing style is unlikely, and their disjointed attacking efforts so far hint at another low-scoring match.

England Faces a Steady Slovenian Side England needs a win to secure a spot in the last 16 and aim for group leadership. Slovenia, with draws in their first two games, will be no pushovers but haven’t shown enough to suggest they can outplay England.

Slovenia’s robust defence has been their strength, although they have been susceptible to numerous shots on target, as evidenced by Aleksandar Mitrovic’s chances in their previous game. This match presents a prime opportunity for Harry Kane to respond to his critics, and as the current favourite for the Golden Boot, he’s likely to be pivotal.

With England’s recent trend of games not exceeding two goals, and Slovenia viewed as the group’s weakest link, an unflashy yet effective performance from England is anticipated. Expect England to edge a win with fewer than 2.5 goals scored available at 12/5.
