Euro 2024 is gaining momentum in Germany, and today marks the first matches of Group C, one of which features Slovenia against Denmark.

In the Euro 2024 qualifiers, these two teams were in the same group. Alongside them were the national teams of Finland, Kazakhstan, Northern Ireland, and San Marino. Both teams finished the qualification with the same number of points, victories, draws, and losses. Despite Slovenia having a better goal difference, Denmark topped the group due to their head-to-head advantage, leaving Slovenia in second place.

In their final group stage, both teams are considered the main contenders for the second playoff spot, making this match crucial for each team.

Before the match, Slovenia's head coach, Matjaž Kek, emphasized their aim to achieve a favorable result against a highly skilled opponent.

"Now we are here. Aware of the strength of tomorrow's opponent, who ranks among the top ten in Europe, we think about ourselves and our presentation, pride, motivation, and desire.

The days in Wuppertal have been spent in a good atmosphere, and the field will show whether we have prepared well or not.

The Danes are indeed excellent with a top coach. We will try to achieve a favorable result."

The President of the Danish Football Association Erik Brøgger Rasmussen recalled the last European Championship held in a neighboring country. That was Euro 1992 in Sweden, which Denmark won.

"This tournament is an opportunity for us to come together again and support the men's national team on their path to victory. Victories that, hopefully, can give us an euphoric football summer.

The last time we played the final stage of the tournament in a neighboring country, we won everything. Many years have passed, but the dream of repeating it remains alive."

Both teams will be vying for the coveted three points and will not be willing to concede victory to the opponent. Undoubtedly, both coaches will utilize their teams' full potential for the upcoming match and will field their strongest players. The Dailysports team has prepared the predicted starting lineups based on the previous decisions of the coaches.
