England v Slovenia Betting Tips, Odds & Match Preview - Euro 2024


England will have the chance to answer some of their critics against Slovenia on Tuesday night, looking to secure top place in Group C at Euro 2024 and set up a more favourable last-16 draw.

The Three Lions have come in for a lot of criticism for their uninspired and disjointed performances so far, the nadir coming in the draw with Denmark, but have rejected some of the criticism they have been subjected to and are on the cusp of progressing through the group with four points from two games.

We’ve looked at some of the best football betting offers, odds and markets from our range of football betting sites to provide you with England v Slovenia betting tips.

England v Slovenia Match Preview

England entered into the tournament as the outright favourites with most bookmakers but have already drifted beyond France and Germany in the odds, and that’s mainly due to the lethargic and disjointed performances against Serbia and Denmark so far.

The 1-1 draw against Denmark in particular left onlookers concerned about the direction of travel under Gareth Southgate, with tactical experiments coming unstuck very quickly, players admitting a lack of a plan, key members of the squad struggling with fitness and an unbalanced XI resulted in stilted, dull football.

Southgate is certain to make changes for this game, with Trent Alexander-Arnold the obvious person to miss out after struggling to adapt to his new midfield role and failing to impose himself on the game.

Conor Gallagher has been the man to replace him in both games so far but was booked against Denmark, so with the threat of suspension hanging over him Southgate is likely to decide between Jude Bellingham, Kobbie Mainoo and Adam Wharton to partner Declan Rice, which could in turn release Phil Foden to play a more involved role - although his position in the team could also come under threat from Anthony Gordon.

Luke Shaw also trained on Monday in a big boost for England - particularly with Kieran Trippier carrying a knock - and his return will hopefully coincide with a more fluid performance.

England are likely already through to the next round but will want to finish in top place to avoid Germany in the next round, and with a point to prove don’t expect them to take this game lightly. I expect them to come out fired up and keen to make a statement at this competition.

For Slovenia, they are well in the equation having picked up two draws from their two games to date.

They were denied a big three points by a late Luka Jovic goal against Serbia last week but know that a point could be enough for them to progress through to the next round.

I expect them to try and stay in this game for as long as possible, rather than go out and attack from the off. Yes they will enthused by how poor England have been in possession at times in the two games to date, but rather than go straight for the throat I think they will be more than happy to be level going into the final half hour before seeing what they can pick up.

However, I think England will turn it on this time. Admittedly I am not basing that off recent performances, but rather trusting in their tournament record under Southgate which has shown that they can put teams away when the situation allows - and with qualification effectively secured, I think they will be allowed to play a little more assertively.

So I am going for England to win with a -2 handicap as my first tip for this game at 16/5 with Paddy Power. England’s defence has looked pretty solid so far and I think that will continue with a clean sheet in this game, so a comfortable win should be on the books to boost confidence in the camp.

My final tip is going to be for Phil Foden to score the first goal at 7/1 with SpreadEx. He has had his detractors so far in this tournament after being billed as a potential star, but I think he actually showed against Denmark just why he is in the side.

He was arguably England’s most dangerous attacker, breaking from deep and beating players and got a couple of dangerous shots away. I’m pretty sure it will click for him eventually, and with a potential move into the middle of the park on the cards that could become even more likely.
