Wales vs Croatia Prediction
Zlatko Dalic’s men are placed at the top of the table but do not possess a healthy lead. With a total of just eight match-days allotted to Group E, owing to their five-team strength, competition has entered its fiercest phase.
Ryan Giggs’s men meanwhile, experienced two tough losses, and this has likely contributed to them running scared for points. They do have a match in hand, but still, pressure has started to mount.
As such, count on Bale and his boys to make the most of this tie, especially taking into account the home advantage. They have so far won every one of their home ties in the competition, and have conceded a single goal in total in front of the home crowd.
The Welsh squad has been a total disaster away from home, and this forces them to give their best at home.
On the other hand, the Chequered ones have a single win to show for their efforts on the road, and coupled with the home team’s determination, the outcome of the tie should be in favor of Wales. While a win is not something that could be assured, they should avoid a loss at the least.
Coming to goals though, consider that the Croats have already once beaten the Welsh squad, and the former has so far been the best of the lot offensively. Moreover, they have performed admirably against the Dragons for quite a long time, holding a 100% unbeaten record overall, and a 100% win-record on the road.
As such, a clean sheet for Wales is not expected this Sunday.
