The Dutch club PSV Eindhoven have been able to maintain their status as the leader in the Dutch Eredivisie after their rivals failed to win their matches in hand during the weekend.
Feyenoord, FC Twente, and Ajax have been the main challenges for PSV this season. Due to the fact that Feyenoord and Twente were playing against each other, there was a chance for PSV to stretch their lead at the top of the table. The team managed by the former Russian manager Dick Advocaat got the perfect result, as Twente and Feyenoord could only manage a draw against each other.
Slovenia have decided to bring back the former manager Srecko Katanec as the man to lead them to the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The former defender is coming back to lead Slovenia the second time after having had a spell from 1998 to 2002. He then went on to manage the national teams of Macedonia and United Arab Emirates before leaving his post as the manager of the UAE national team more than two years ago. Srecko Katanec represented Yugoslavia during his playing days. He represented Yugoslavia in 31 matches and scored five goals in these matches.
Slovenia is terrible run of form showed no sign of improvement in the recent match against Macedonia after they slumped to a 3-2 defeat away from home. Slovenia have won just one match in the last five encounters.
The 2-1 win over Cyprus in the World Cup qualifying group seems to have happened ages ago after the team's poor performance has only increased the pressure on the manager Stojanovič. The pressure on him increased even more after the recent match against Macedonia. It was a friendly match, but still Slovenia were unable to manage a victory.
Cyprus will be preparing to take on the Slovenian national team looking to take advantage of the poor form of the opposition, but they are not in the best possible shape to take advantage of this according to the manager. Cyprus come into the match with a number of injuries, which have forced them to use a number of non-regulars for the squad.
