The first match of Round 2 in Group C of the 2024 European Championships sees Slovenia take on Serbia at the Allianz Arena in Munich on the 20th of June - kick-off time of 14:00 GMT. It is largely expected that England will top the group, so these two teams, along with Denmark, will be vying for a second place. Slovenia picked up a handy draw against Denmark, so they know that a win here would stand them in good stead for the knockout rounds. Keep on reading to find out who I think will go on and claim the three big points that are on offer.

🏆 Slovenia vs Serbia: Who Will Win?

Ahead of the competition, Slovenia were the bookies favourites to finish at the bottom of Group C, but they showed in their match against Denmark that they could compete with some of the bigger footballing nations. The Slovenians showed the Danes too much respect in the first half and were trailing 1-0 at the break, but they caused Denmark a load of issues in the second half, especially with their set-piece routines. They will be looking to keep it tight at the back against Serbia and trouble their opponents with corners and long throw-ins.

Serbia got their campaign off to a losing start against England, but they can take some heart from their overall performance, especially in the second half. They were all over England at times in the second half, and a fine save from Pickford late on prevented the Serbs from getting a point, which probably would have been deserved. Their strength lies in their attack, so they will be hoping that Vlahovic and Mitrovic can break the low block that they will likely encounter.

A win is crucial for both teams' hopes of progression, but I think this match will end in a stalemate as I can see both teams cancelling each other out over the 90 minutes. As for the scoreline, I am going for 1-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 Slovenia 1 Scotland 1 ⚽

💯 Slovenia vs Serbia Match Odds

If you want to put down some bets on this Slovenia vs Serbia match, then you will not struggle to find top established and new UK betting sites that are offering competitive odds and markets for it. Below I have provided you with five quality bookies for British football bettors, and you can head to our bookmaker reviews to find out more about each one.

🏅 Slovenia vs Serbia: Match Winner Odds

It is always a wise move to check out previous head-to-head results between two nations when you are considering betting on their next meeting. When it comes to Slovenia and Serbia, they have only played four times - they have one win apiece and two draws. Their most recent meetings came in the UEFA Nations League in 2022, with Serbia winning 4-1 in the first and it finishing 2-2 in the second.

Slovenia have shown that they can compete with Serbia, but the bookies have the Serbs down as the big favourites. This will give us some value in the draw option. You can see all of the latest match winner odds in the table below:

Slovenia4.554.554.504.604.60
Draw3.303.303.503.503.65
Serbia1.791.791.831.811.81

⚽ Slovenia vs Serbia: Both Teams To Score Odds

I must admit that the odds for the both teams to score market for this match are a little strange to me. The bookies, like they usually are when it comes to this market, are unsure as to whether both teams will find the back of the net. As you can see from the table below, the majority are slightly favouring the "Yes" option.

So, where does the strangeness come in? Well, in the next section, you will see the over/under 2.5 goals odds and that the bookies do not believe there will be over 2.5 goals. How can they have Serbia as the big favourites, both teams to score, and under 2.5 goals? The result would be 1-1 if both teams score and there are under 2.5 goals. Anyway, check out the BTTS odds below:

✔️ Slovenia vs Serbia - Betting Tips

Now that I have provided you with the Slovenia vs Serbia odds that my five top bookmakers are offering for three markets, this section of my betting guide will take you through my main Slovenia vs Serbia betting tips.

Whether you are betting with your own money or some type of free bet that you have gained, it never does any harm to check out the views of experienced football bettors before you go ahead and slap down a wager.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: Slovenia and Serbia were impressive in the second halves of their first Group Stage matches against Denmark and England, and if they play like that for the whole match then this should be an entertaining game for the neutrals. From what I have seen, these two teams are pretty evenly matched, so I can see them playing out a draw - a result that does not really help either side out. Those who want to back a draw can find odds of 3.65 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Serbia have quality in attack, but they concede plenty of goals, which is why it is hard for me to see them keeping a clean sheet. I reckon they will struggle to deal with the quality Slovenian set-pieces. I also do not see Slovenia keeping a clean sheet because they will probably struggle to keep the likes of Mitrovic and Vlahovic quiet. I think that there is value to be had in this market, and those who agree with me can find odds of 1.91 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Back Mitrovic to score for Serbia: Anyone who has watched the EPL in recent years will know what a quality striker Mitrovic is. He made 173 appearances for Fulham over five seasons, scoring 97 goals. Last year he moved to Al Hilal, and he has notched 28 goals in 28 matches. He is Serbia's main goal-scoring threat, and I can see him finding the net here. If you can too, LeoVegas are offering odds of 2.70 for him to score anytime.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 1-1 correct score: If you enjoy trying your luck on the riskier markets, then you should check out the Correct Score one. For me, this game has stalemate written all over it, and those who agree can make use of odds of 6.20 at Betiton Sport.

N.B. Gamble responsibly by setting up a budget and deposit limits. Do not chase your losses.

1️⃣Slovenia Update

Not many would have put their hard-earned money on Slovenia making it out of Group C and into the knockout stages of the competition, but those views might have changed slightly after their 1-1 draw with Denmark. While England will still be the favourites to top the group, the Slovenians have shown that there is not a lot between the other three teams in the group.

If they can get some set-pieces in the opposition third, they have the personnel to cause plenty of issues such as Benjamin Šeško, who is 6 ft 5 in. Below you can see their previous five results:

Matjaž Kek will be happy that he does not have any injuries or suspensions to think about when choosing his XI for this match against Serbia.

2️⃣Serbia Update

Some teams have quality in defence and attack, while others are more top-heavy and cannot really rely on their defence to win games for them. Serbia is one such team - in qualifying they conceded in six of their eight matches against the likes of Lithuania, Montenegro, and Bulgaria. Teams that are not exactly thought highly of on the world football stage.

On the other hand, they have an attack that can cause many top teams an issue on their day. If they can sure up their defence, they will have a very good chance of getting out of this group and into the knockout stages. Below are their previous five results:
