Team News: Slovenia make two alterations for Euro 2016 second-leg playoff with Ukraine

Slovenia make two changes to their side as they look to cause an upset and overturn a 2-0 deficit against Ukraine in their Euro 2016 second-leg playoff.

Slovenia have made two changes to their side as they look to upset Ukraine and overturn a 2-0 deficit in their Euro 2016 second-leg playoff.

Nejc Pecnik has replaced Jasmin Kurtic in midfield, while Josip Ilicic has been relegated to the bench, with Roman Bezjak preferred in attack.

Ukraine are favourites to progress after opening up a two-goal margin on home soil in the first leg, but manager Mykhaylo Fomenko has made one change to his side.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Taras Stepanenko has stepped in to usurp Denys Garmash, but both goalscorers from Saturday's game - Andriy Yarmolenko and Yevhen Seleznyov - retain their places.

Slovenia: Handanovic; Brecko, Ilic, Cesar, Jokic; Birsa, Pecnik, Kampl, Krhin; Novakovic, Bezjak

Ukraine: Pyatov; Khacheridi, Fedetskiy, Rakitskiy, Shevchuk; Stepanenko, Sydorchuk, Rybalka; Yarmolenko, Seleznyov, Konoplyanka
