England vs Croatia PREVIEW & PREDICTION 18/11/2018

With 3 wins in the last 4 matches, England’s national team is optimistic about Croatia’s match against the UEFA League. A victory would give the English 1st place in the 4th Group A, which would be a great result for the Albion generation. The match will be played on Sunday at 14:00 on the Wembley arena.

Spain leads the 4th group with 6 points (go-go 12-7), and England and Croatia are on the second place with 4 points. England has 4-4 goals, while Croats pay tribute to tough failure with Spain and have a 3-8 goal. The hosts come after a rewarding success, a 3-0 score against the US national, and the “lions” have lost one match in the last 17 on their own field. With a young and homogeneous team, Gareth Southgate has built a good mechanism for England, which starts as a favorite in front of the CM 2018 finalist. Victoria with 3-2 in front of Spain in September remains a benchmark!

We are expecting to see an exciting match with the goal, especially as 8 of the last 10 games played by the Croats have scored both teams. And Croatia has the chance to win the group after winning a dramatic victory in the extra time against Spain (3-2). So there are reasons to see an offensive game if the score will be opened in the first half, because both bands have a great chance to face the Iberians, who have long been the winners of the group. It captures the effectiveness of the Croatian defender Tin Jedvaj, who has managed a double with Spain, after having scored two goals for Bayer Leverkusen in the previous four games played at the club.

Croatia’s middle line can cause much danger.

With just 5 goals in the last 10 home games, England will count on a compact defensive, but Croatia has fast and technical players, plus Modric and Rakitic’s creativity in the middle. At the same time, the last games played by the two national teams were full of goals, an outcome that offers an attractive share on Sunday afternoon. England and Croatia have only one defeat in the last 5 games, and the score of the straight match was 0-0. It was a disputed match in unusual conditions, without spectators, and the draw helped both countries.

Scenarios de calificare:

– England defeats Croatia and wins the group, and croats retrograde in the B series
– The match ends 0-0, Spain qualifies for the final tournament and Croatia relegates to the B series
– In the event of a draw, England is relegated to the B series and Spain wins the group
– Croatia wins Wembley and wins the group, while Spain finishes on 2 and England on 3

PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.78
