It’s barely started, and the young Slovenians are already facing one of the key matches: Aćimović and the young hopes in Murska Sobota for a win against their northern neighbours
Not only the Slovenian national team, but also the young national team will be at work on Tuesday. Selector Milenko Aćimović and his charges will play at home, more precisely in Murska Sobota, where the match will start at 18. The match against our northern neighbours Austria kicks off at 10:00. With the top spot in Group H of the Euro 2025 qualifiers more often than not already reserved for France, and Cyprus and BiH having won only one point so far, it seems that Slovenia and Austria will be the main contenders for the second place, which leads to further qualification. In the light of the above, it is pointless to describe the importance of the game ahead of Slovenians.
“First of all, we had to recover well from the victory and the good performance in Cyprus, which was very important for our team. We know what’s coming, we have analysed the Austrian team’s game. Our desire is to win, to repeat the approach they have shown so far, to be confident and to want the three points,” said Milenko Aćimović for NZS website , who has so far taken his charges to two victories – against BiH and Cyprus.
Milenko Aćimović added about the Fazanerija showdown:”There is nothing better in football than a win, which is the best for the atmosphere in the team and the confidence of the boys. Austria is a good and compact team, but we have our own quality and we don’t hide it. We want to win, we are capable of it and we believe in the three points.”
Ratnik: “An extra charge, an extra motive”
One of those on whom Milenko Aćimović will bet the most is Marcel Ratnik. Defender of Olimpija is in good form this season, and ahead of the battle with Austria (a team that also includes Ratnik’s teammate Pascal Estrada, who has been on the sidelines in Ljubljana lately), he says: “I think three points would mean a lot to us, we have already made some progress in this group and another win would be very important in the fight for qualification. The win in Cyprus was very important, the game was very difficult, we had to show a lot of patience. This victory gives us an extra boost and the home game gives us extra motivation. I believe we have a good game tomorrow, everyone wants to play in front of a full Fazanerija.”
