Palermo star Josip Ilicic is confident Slovenia can cause an upset in the Euro 2012 qualifier on Friday.
“Slovenia are going out there for the three points,” said the creative midfielder who joined Serie A last summer.
“My intention is to come back to Palermo as a winner and with a grin from ear to ear.
“I think the game with Italy will be decided exclusively by individual incidents, so naturally I hope the luck will turn our way.”
Italy currently lead Group C with 10 points, followed by Slovenia on seven.
