Wales vs Croatia Betting Tips
The runner-ups of the World Cup 2018 are on a very good road in the Euro 2020 qualification. They’re at the top of the group table and the chances are pretty high they will get qualified for the continental championship. The top two teams get tickets to the Euros, so even if they finish on the second spot, they will be satisfied.
Croatia have to play two more games till the end of the qualifiers and that means that they could get the job done this weekend. If they beat Wales, they will secure a place at the Euro 2020. They’ve already beat them this year, back in June. The match was played in Croatia and the score was 2:1 for the hosts. Speaking of home performances, Croatia have won every Euro qualifier played on their turf.
Their away form hasn’t been that great. In three away matches, they got one of each – one defeat, one draw, and one victory. And that’s something Wales are hoping to take advantage of. They have two wins in home matches in this qualification campaign, having won against Azerbaijan and Slovakia.
This team has played a game less than Croatia (as well as Slovakia and Hungary), which means that they still have a chance to finish the qualification on one of the two top spots. Of course, in order for that to happen, they need to win as many points as possible. Otherwise, they’d have to rely on luck. This is why you can be certain that they’re going to give their utmost in the game on Sunday. The same, of course, goes for Croatia as well, which is something that promises a super-exciting duel.
