Missing Players and team news:
Neophytos Michael is likely to start between the sticks for Cyprus after Demetrious Demetriou sustained an injury at the weekend. While Pieros Sotiriou could also be recalled in place of Ilia in the final third, the remainder of the side may remain the same. Despite the defeat in Russia, Kek is unlikely to make many alterations to his Slovenia starting lineup. Nejc Skubic is an option at right-back, while Amedej Vetrih will be regarded as an alternative in the centre of the pitch. Former Newcastle United youngster Haris Vuckic is also in contention for an opportunity in attack.
