It very often comes down to how kind the fixtures are for you. It is certainly better to be climaxing the group with a game against the likes of San Marino, than it is trying to take on the Czech Republic for example. Slovenia had a huge moral boost on Saturday, when they beat rivals Slovakia 2-0 away from home. That victory, combined with the easy last fixture, should guarantee Slovenia at least second spot, which is where they currently sit. A win for Slovenia could actually see them top the group, but that will be reliant on Slovakia failing to win in their final fixture against Poland.

What a Slovenian victory will do however, is eliminate the Czech Republic from qualification. Slovenia have only lost two games during qualifying and with San Marino only having scored one goal and conceded a hefty forty-four, then the odds are stacked mightily against anything other than a Slovenia win. The bigger the win for Slovenia, the more chance they will have of taking first place, should Slovakia only manage to draw, and it all comes down to goal difference.
