Wales – Croatia, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR WALES - CROATIA
Wales could not beat Slovenia as a guest in last game and may regret the missed chance even though they owned the ball very little. However, they led and limited their opponent, who managed to score one goal, but Wales could have decided the match much earlier. Ramsey’s absence reflected a lot and the British overall are much more stable at home. The Juve player is now expected to return so Wales can look much better.
Croatia defeated Hungary 3-0, leaving them single-team leaders. Chess players were expected to demonstrate their class once again at home, as their match was very important and they were with full squad. They are also much better off in their home games. Of course, now the fight with Wales will be much more difficult. Although Croatia beat Slovakia 4-0 as a visitor earlier, today they will face serious difficulties in scoring goals.
Expert view : The situation in the group is very complicated. Here, in the circumstances, draw would be a good result for Wales. The same is true of the Croats, as they are 1st and are guests. We will turn to the goals in this meeting. Wales may have the best defense against teams in the group, not as individuals, but overall in the defensive part of the game. They are even tougher at home. Croats, however, always play more concentrated against strong teams and rarely make mistakes in defense. We think that we will not see as many goal chances here and rather the teams will approach defensively and cautiously. Accordingly, our prediction is Under 2.5 goals at 1.72.
Wales have conceded just 1 goal in their last 4 home matches
