Ljubljana – MMC RTV SLO

A Slovenian football team strongly led by interim selector Igor Bendejčič will host Norway in the battle for survival in Group C of the League of Nations in Stožice tonight.

The bookmakers' favorites are the Scandinavians, who along with Bulgaria are struggling to win the group. This anticipates the finals, which will attract one of the passengers to the European Championship of 2020 of league C.

Slovenia threatens to move to league D, the worst qualifying competition in Europe. Slovenes who are still without victory are no longer dependent on themselves. In the games against Norway and on Monday against Bulgaria, they must score at least 4 points, since they will decide each other by the classification in the group in the case of the same number of points. Cyprus is better here. This means that, at the same time as the Slovenian competitions, Cyprus should lose at home both Bulgarians and Norwegians. Even if the Cypriots win only two points in two domestic games, the Slovenians must win both games in Ljubljana and in Sofia.

Slovenia without team half
The task is even more difficult, as Slovenia is very weak. Jan Oblak does not answer calls, Kevin Kampl he unexpectedly retires. Josip Iličić received a red card in the previous game and will not be against the Norwegians. Damaged Rene Krhin, Bojan Jokic, Nemanja Mitrovic and Tim Matavz in Jasmin Kurtić.

The turbulent period occurred Tomaž Kavčič and the national team will be led by Benedejčič, who is optimistic. "We have done everything we can, I hope it is the best. We have to play organized in defense and attack, leaving the heart in the field and satisfying the public that I hope to support our selection" says Benedejčič. In the absence of Jokic and Ilicic, he will carry the captain's tape Benjamin Verbič.

Norwegians who will play without their best marksman Joshue King, they won six times in eight matches, the Slovenes only once.

The game will begin at 8.45 pm with direct broadcast to SLO 2 and MMC TV. The study part will begin at 8:00 p.m.
