Slovenia v Armenia - International Friendly
Slovenia play host to Bulgaria in a friendly on Saturday

Slovenia continue their final preparations ahead of the upcoming European Championship when they play host to Bulgaria in a friendly on Saturday. Ilian Iliev’s men journey to the Stožice Stadium unbeaten in their four matches against the hosts and will look to extend this impressive run.

Slovenia maintained their fine run of results on Tuesday when they picked up a 2-1 victory over Armenia in a friendly at the Stožice Stadium.

Matjaž Kek’s men have now gone five consecutive matches without defeat in all competitions, claiming four wins and one draw since a 2-1 loss to Denmark on November 17.

Slovenia kicked off their Euro campaign against Denmark on June 16 before facing Serbia and England in their final two games in Group C.

Bulgaria, on the other hand, continued to struggle for results as they were held to a goalless draw by Romania at the Steaua Stadium in midweek.

Iliev’s men have now failed to win 13 of their last 14 matches across all competitions, losing six and claiming six draws since November 2022.

Bulgaria will be backing themselves to find their feet this weekend as they take on a Slovenia side who have failed to win their last four encounters since September 2006.
