Slovenia national football team will play their first major international tournament in 14 years against the Denmark national football team in their first Group C game at the MHPArena. Both sides are searching for three points to kickstart their Euro 2024 campaign.

Both sides are no strangers to each other having been drawn in the same Euro 2024 qualifying group last year. Slovenia national football team have progressed through the knockout stages of a major tournament. They have been drawn alongside Denmark, England and Serbia. Both Denmark and Slovenia have met six times in their histories and Slovenia are yet to secure a win against the Danes. Surprisingly, Slovenia have never won a match in the European Championships.

Meanwhile, the Denmark national football team have been far more successful in the Euros, winning the tournament back in 1992 and making it to the semi-finals thrice. With England coming up next, this game will be pivotal for the Danish side.

They will enter this game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Bulgaria and will look to get on the front foot on Sunday afternoon.

Denmark national football team, meanwhile, topped their group in the European qualification last year. There were not much separating between both sides in the qualification despite Denmark taking the spot. This will be their tenth appearance in the Euro Championships and are the favorites ahead of the game.

Key Players to Watch out for

Benjamin Sesko

The Slovenian striker had a breakout campaign with RB Leipzig last year where he scored 18 goals for the German side across all competitions in 2023-24. He has earned 29 caps for his national side while registering 11 goals in the process. Many Premier League clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United were vying for Sesko’s signature this summer but the 21-year-old signed a new contract at Leipzig ending their chances of signing the talented forward.

The legendary Danish midfielder has made his fairytale return to the European Championships three years after suffering a heart attack back in 2021. He was later fitted with a pacemaker to further continue his footballing career. Eriksen managed to play only 28 games for Manchester United last season. He is one of the most crucial members of the current Danish setup as the squad aims for success in Euro 2024.
