Recent History

Slovenia and United States World Cup form

Slovenia 1-0 Algeria
79m R. Koren (Slo)

WCI Rating: 5.0
1st half: 2.5
2nd half: 2.5

Controlled play well for long periods and they were very sound down back but didn’t get into the penalty box enough when in possession of the ball so much.

United States
United States 0-0 England

WCI Rating: 6
1st half: 3.0
2nd half: 3.0

Team performance very good and moved the ball quickly at times against a quality defence. They were opened up a few times in the middle by England and will be required to convert more chances when they present themselves

Slovenia vs United States Preview

Slovenia were the only team in Group C to get 3 points and victory here will ensure a passage through to the next round.

The Slovenians have no need to do anything silly and one would expect them to defend their goal resolutely.

United States were probably the better side in their England game and that’s fair form leading into this match.

They have potential goal scorers up front that can worry Slovenia and the USA need a win if they want to stake a claim to the next round..

Slovenia vs United States Match Prediction

In a must win game for United States they go in under the odds here for ours at just over even money against a Slovenia side that are hardened down back and at good value odds of 3.80 in our view.

Slovenia on the handicap are well worth a shot but we think this game will be a draw with the US on the offensive and Slovenia holding them out.
