England – Croatia, Nations League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ENGLAND - CROATIA
This is certainly the most tied group in League A and, perhaps, even in all the groups in Nations League this season. Interestingly, the all the three teams can go ahead and all depends of this result. England will only qualify with a victory, the same is true for Croatia, but if both teams make draw, the big winner will be Spain, as they have 6 points without more matches and England and Croatia have 4 points. The English played an emotional match against the United States a few days ago, defeating 3-0, showing good performance and good mood, plus the great Wayne Rooney got his farewell to Wembley and England’s national team. England are playing better and better. At Wembley they are almost invincible. They made a spectacular match against Spain and confirmed that their strong game at the World Cup is not accidental.
Croatia also made a famous match with Spain and also beat them 3-2 a few days ago, surprisingly or not. The goal came from Jedvaj in the last minute after the Croats led twice, but the rival was equalizing them. However, it is important to note that they really spent so much energy in this match and it is unclear whether they will be in top condition for this clash. Let’s not forget how many minutes played this team on the World Cup and that should have an impact for sure. Besides, one of the big stars will not be able to take part in this game. It’s about Ivan Rakitic.
England have to get their revange vs. Croatia for the loss in the World Cup. In the previous match of the League of Nations we saw a zero-zero draw which was completely deserved and it is right to say that both teams were even. Now, however, England comes out as a favorite. This is justified and our prediction is England to win at 1.89. We believe that the domestic factor, the good shape and the tireness in the guests will have a greater impact and the three lions will congratulate themselves with success in the end.
