Croatia – Azerbeijan, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CROATIA - AZERBEIJAN
Having failed to complete their first position in the League of Nations, the Croats are the next team to fight for Euro 20 qualifiers. Definitely the chess team group looks pretty easy and they should not have any trouble getting the first place in it. It’s important how the team’s attack will look after Rebic was called and he was injured for a long time. Perisic is not in shape, and Mandzhukic has retired from the national team long ago.
Azerbaijan are one of the lowest level teams in the groups overall and were not accidentally in the last League D of the League of Nations, where they finished second below Kosovo. This team has nothing to impress and will probably lose the game, but they will certainly be extremely defensive in the game, because there is nothing to offer in the attack.
The Croats are not in their best physical and mental condition, but this Balkan team always shows us a great spirit and will for victory. At home in euro qualifiers almost do not allow goals, and Azerbaijan very rarely score as a guest in the qualifiers at all. Most likely there will only be goals in the visitors’ net, so we expect an extraordinary victory for the hosts to start in the first half. Prediction – First half – Croatia to win at 1.47.
