The Euro 2024 stage is set for a tantalizing encounter. Denmark, the 2021 semifinalists, will face a youthful and energetic Slovenian side making their historic Euro debut. This clash pits Denmark's experience against Slovenia's exuberance. While Slovenia held Denmark to a draw in the Group H qualifiers, their opening match loss puts them at a slight disadvantage. However, their 1-1 draw in the final qualifier demonstrates their growing confidence and ability to challenge established teams. 


Both teams understand the significance of this opening match. A loss could jeopardize their chances of progressing in a tough group that also includes England and Serbia. Expect a high-pressure encounter as Denmark seeks to leverage their experience and Slovenia strives to prove their mettle on the big stage. This match promises to be a fascinating battle between seasoned veterans and hungry newcomers.

Slovenia Preview

Slovenia gears up for a historic debut at Euro 2024, aiming to break new ground by reaching the knockout stage for the first time in a major tournament. The opening match against Denmark holds immense significance in setting the tone for their campaign.

All eyes are on young forward Benjamin Šeško, who currently plays for RB Leipzig. His impressive performances have attracted transfer interest from giants like Chelsea and Arsenal. Šeško opted to stay in Germany for further development, but a stellar showing at Euro 2024, especially against strong opponents like Denmark and England, could significantly elevate his reputation on the international stage. 

Slovenia Probable Starting XI - Jan Oblak (GK), Jaka Bijol, David Berkalo, Erik Janza, Vanja Drkusic, Jon Gorenc Stankovic, Adam Gnezda Cerin, Tomi Horvat, Benjamin Sesko, Jan Mlakar, Andraz Sporar 

Denmark Preview

Denmark heads into Euro 2024 brimming with confidence after topping their qualifying group with seven wins, a draw, and just two losses. However, the memory of their valiant run to the 2021 Euro semifinal's, ultimately dashed by England, still lingers. 

The disappointment of a lackluster World Cup campaign in 2022 further fuels their desire for redemption. Denmark boasts a wealth of experience with veterans like Christian Eriksen and defensive leader Simon Kjaer in their ranks and they are also undefeated against Slovenia in International competitions winning two of the three matches played. 

Denmark Probable Starting XI- Kasper Schmeichel (GK), Joachim Andersen, Simon Kjær, Andreas Christensen, Alexander Bah, Morten Hjulmand, Pierre Emile Højbjerg, Thomas Delaney,  Mikkel Damsgaard, Rasmus Højlund, Kasper Dolberg 

An intriguing encounter is expected in the opening fixture of Group C as Slovenia faces Denmark. Historically, Denmark holds the upper hand, winning five out of their last six meetings. However, this Slovenian squad is a different beast, having held Denmark to a draw in the Euro 2024 qualifiers. 

 Furthermore, their young striker Benjamin Šeško is in top form and could pose a serious threat to the Danish defense. With Denmark seeking redemption after a disappointing World Cup and Slovenia brimming with confidence expect a close encounter.
