Portugal vs Slovenia Predicted Lineups

Unchanged from the Turkey game for Portugal

As their spot as first place finishers in Group F was assured by matchday 3, manager Roberto Martinez took the opportunity to rest most of his starters, and with his rotated side looking unimpressive in their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Georgia, it seems unlikely that any of the bench players have made an impression and earned a starting spot. With no suspensions or injuries in the camp, we anticipate that the lineup that beat Turkey 3-0 on matchday 2 will be used again here.

4 2 3 1 19 1

Slovenia making one enforced change

Slovenia’s side has been very consistent throughout the tournament to date but a suspension for left back Erik Janza is set to force a first change to the starting lineup of this Euros from manager Matjaz Kek. Jure Balkovec has played just one minute at the Euros so far but the Alanyaspor man is now set to start in the biggest game Slovenia have played since becoming an independent nation. Aside from Janza, the side is unchanged from that which faced England, with no other injury concerns or suspensions.

Portugal vs Slovenia Team Stats

Corners are an obvious choice for Portugal here

Portugal racked up massive corner totals against both Czech Republic and Georgia, games in which they dominated possession and territory to a similar extent as they are likely to here. They had 13 corners against Czech Republic and 11 against Georgia, averaging 8.33 corners per game across all three group stage games. Slovenia conceded an average of 8.33 corners per game in their group stage fixtures, and allowed their opponents nine corners twice, against Denmark and Serbia, with England managing six. Portugal can be backed to have over 6.5 corners here at 1.75, and this is a bet well worth taking at that price.

Jan Oblak will need to be in top form here

Portugal have had five or more shots on target in two of their three games at thetournament, with the opposing goalkeeper making seven and five saves in those games respectively. Roberto Martinez’s side forced five or more saves in four of their last six qualifying games heading into this tournament, while Jan Oblak has made three saves in all three group games so far, despite never facing more than four shots on target in a single game. With Portugal looking a cut above the opposition Slovenia faced in Group C, backing him to make four or more saves at 1.83 here looks like a sensible option.

Portugal vs Slovenia Shots and Shots on Target Stats

Bernardo Silva looks an intriguing prospect here

Man City midfielder turned winger Bernardo Silva offers great value in the shot on target markets here, where he can be backed at 2.40 to have just one. He can also be backed to have two shots at 2.10 and having had two shots and a shot on target in both of his starts at the finals, both options represent very solid value. We like the shots pick the most, with Silva having taken two shots in four of his last five starts for Portugal at this Euros and in qualifying.

30 06 2024 PORTUGAL betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING

Benjamin Sesko offers good value for Slovenia

Slovenia’s best player already at just 21 years old, RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko is by far the best option for those looking to back a Slovenian player for a shot on target. He has now had a shot on target in both of Slovenia’s last two games at the finals, averaging 0.71 shots on target per 90, the most of any Slovenian player. With shots on target in seven of his last nine starts at this Euros and during qualifying, backing him at 1.73 to have another here offers solid value.

30 06 2024 SLOVENIA betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING

Portugal vs Slovenia Goals and Assists Stats

Bruno Fernandes offers the best value for Portugal

Man United skipper Bruno Fernandes offers nice value to score or assist here. He has done so once already in two games at the Euros, scoring against Turkey in Portugal’s comfortable 3-0 win on matchday 2 that confirmed top spot in Group F. He has had six shots and had a shot on target in one of his two starts at this Euros, while creating nine shots for his team-mates in just two games at this tournament. Portugal could score multiple times in this game and if they do, it seems highly likely that Bruno Fernandes will be directly involved in at least one. He can be backed to score or assist at 2.0 here.

30 06 2024 PORTUGAL betbuilder stats pack GOALSCORING

Andraz Sporar offers nice value here

Panathinaikos striker Andraz Sporar looks an interesting prospect to either score or assist for Slovenia here. Portugal are heavy favourites so all the Slovenian options are priced accordingly, but Sporar could well be a nice longshot option. He has created four shots from passes in the group stage and has taken 2.41 shots per 90 at the finals, hitting a shot on target in six of his last nine starts for Slovenia at the Euros and in qualifying. He can be backed to score or assist here at 5.0.

Portugal Cards and Fouls Stats

Dias looks highly likely to foul here

Ruben Dias has averaged 1.0 fouls per game at this Euros and has now fouled in each of his last five games for Portugal at the finals and in qualifying. The Man City centre back is an aggressive defender who looks to get a foot in early, and will be up against Sesko, who will not be afraid of a physical tussle as Slovenia look to use him to get the ball up the pitch. Sesko has won 1.54 fouls per 90 at this Euros, while strike partner Andraz Sporar has won 2.07, being fouled in all three group stage fixtures. Dias then looks a good bet for at least one foul, and he can be backed to oblige at 1.57.

30 06 2024 PORTUGAL betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR 1

Elsnik could offer huge value to be fouled

Slovenia’s Timi Elsnik is an intriguing prospect in the player to be fouled markets, where he can be backed to win a free kick at 2.10. He has won 0.71 fouls per 90 at the finals, and has now won at least one foul in three of his last five starts for Slovenia at the Euros and in qualifying. Elsnik has solid matchups here too, up against Bruno Fernandes and Joao Palhinha. Fernandes has committed exactly 1.0 fouls per 90, while Palhinha committed three fouls in two 45-minute showings against Turkey and Georgia to average 3.0 fouls per 90.

Slovenia Cards and Fouls Stats

Cerin looks the most certain to foul

Adam Cerin has committed a team-high nine fouls at the finals, fouling five times against Denmark and four against Slovenia in the group stages. That leaves the Panathinaikos midfielder on 3.0 fouls per 90 at the finals, the most of any player in a Slovenian shirt to have played over 90 minutes of football. He can be backed to commit two or more fouls at 1.57, and up against Vitinha, who has won 3.50 fouls per 90 at the Euros, and Joao Palhinha who has won 1.0, he stands a great chance of hitting that line again today.

30 06 2024 SLOVENIA betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

Bruno Fernandes a solid pick to be fouled

Bruno Fernandes looks like an excellent odds-boosting option to win a foul here, where he can be backed at a very appealing 1.36. The Man United skipper has won four fouls in two games at this Euros, winning three in the Turkey game alone, and has some solid matchups here, most notably Adam Cerin, who has already committed a whopping nine fouls at the tournament. With Fernandes winning a foul in nine of his last 10 games for Portugal at the finals and in qualifying, 1.36 looks an excellent price for him to win a free kick in this one.
