Estonia and Slovenia met for the first time in their first official friendly fixtures since gaining independence. Now the Baltic side are eyeing a first home win against their guests in UEFA EURO 2016 Group E.
• Estonia's record in seven games against Slovenia is W1 D1 L5 (W0 D1 L2 as the home side – W1 D0 L3 in Slovenia). Their first victory came in the sides' most recent encounter, in Ljubljana on 2 September 2011.
• The sides first met in Tallinn on 3 June 1992, in what was Estonia's first game since the end of the Soviet Union – and Slovenia's first FIFA-recognised fixture (their 1-0 win against Croatia on 19 June 1991 being regarded as unofficial). Aleksandar Puštov's free-kick (7) put Uno Piir's Estonia in front but Igor Benedejčič's 73rd-minute header earned Bojan Prašnikar's Slovenia a 1-1 draw.
• Slovenia won 2-0 when the sides met in Ljubljana on 7 April 1993. It was Slovenia's first international victory, at the third attempt, with Samir Zulič and Sašo Udovič on target.
• Estonia and Slovenia's first competitive meetings were in EURO '96 qualifying. Under Zdenko Verdenik, Slovenia won 3-0 against Roman Ubakivi's Estonia in Ljubljana on 29 March 1995, Zlatko Zahovič (40), Primož Gliha (52) and Vladimir Kokol (90+3) scoring. It was Kokol's only goal for Slovenia.
• In the reverse fixture in Tallinn on 11 June 1995, Džoni Novak (38, 69) and Zahovič (80) responded after Martin Reim (26) had put the home side in front to earn a 3-1 victory for the visitors. They were the first two goals of Novak's international career – he was only to score three in 71 games for Slovenia.
• Most recently, the teams met in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying. On 12 October 2010 Andrei Sidorenkov's own goal (67) gave Matjaž Kek's Slovenia a 1-0 win. Tarmo Rüütli's Estionia has their revenge on 2 September 2011, Ats Purje (81) earning a 2-1 win in Ljubljana after Tim Matavž (78) had cancelled out Estonia's opener, Konstantin Vassiljev's 29th-minute penalty.
• The nations' clubs have met in eight UEFA competition games, the Slovenian side winning all eight fixtures.
